This programme is designed especially with medical practitioners of University Malaya Medical Center (UMMC) in mind.
The Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) is a doctorate level degree held by medical doctors. In the United Kingdom and many other Commonwealth countries, the M.D. is a higher doctoral degree reserved for those who have contributed significantly to the academic study of medicine and surgery. Unlike the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) offered by U.S medical schools and some Malaysian medical schools, this is a doctorate programme and the candidate must already have the necessary medical experience before applying for this programme.
