Institution Profile


The Melaka-Manipal Medical College (MMMC) was conceived from the ‘Look East Policy’ of the former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who recognised the need for greater South-South cooperation in the economic, education and social sectors in line with the government’s objective of making the country leading educational hub in the region. MMMC is the first Indo-Malaysian joint venture private (professional) medical education and was established with the full support of the Ministry of Higher Education and Ministry of Health. The college also had the support of experienced medical and dental educationist from Manipal University who helped in the implementation of the medical and dental programmes.

Benefits for the students

“I came, I saw, I conquered”, these are Hitler’s words that hold true for my experience in Malaysia. I came here with a vision to study. During my stay here, I saw the unique culture and warmness of Malaysia. The multiracial society with their politeness has melted my heart. I am confident that the wonderful and brilliant lecturers here will make me a promising doctor. I strongly recommend studying in Melaka-Manipal Medical College.
