Course Description

UNIMAS offers a medical education system that is progressive and comparable to the medical education programmes offered in the medical faculties of advanced countries.

Medical education today requires medical students who are critical of their own learning processes. They should be able to seek knowledge of their own accord, evaluate medical problems in great detail and seek solutions to the challenges that they encounter. They are expected to be able to communicate effectively and to manage issues related to medicine and the health of the community. These characteristics are not fostered fully in most current medical educational systems, many of which emphasise passive learning approaches. However, the medical education approaches to teaching and learning employed by this Faculty offer medical students opportunities to develop their potential and creativity and to make full use of these capabilities. These approaches require students who are confident that the medical profession is their best choice.
