It uses a student-centered and problem-based approach to learning which should apply throughout the physician’s career.

Students must successfully complete the Basic Medical Sciences phase prior to beginning clerkships. From the third year, theoretical training is extended with clinical practice, where students learn in the various affiliate hospitals and health centers. Successful graduates are granted a Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree recognized by the Malaysian Medical Council.

Got a question for us?
What are our students saying?
Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences (CUCMS) is a relatively small and new school compared to others, but I have no regrets in choosing to attend it for my tertiary education. During my time there, I gained not just cognitive knowledge but other useful soft skills as well. I was able to develop essential skills that can be employed later in the working environment (communication, interpersonal, and leadership). The lecturers are experienced as well as approachable. This ensures I do not face the challenges of being a medical student alone as help was just a door knock away. Ultimately CUCMS has taught me the importance of having good akhlak, and to be a contributing member of the community and nation.
The 5-years in CUCMS have been a very precious and memorable journey for me. The lecturers were very dedicated and cared for us, till we felt like a big family in CUCMS. I was not only taught on how to treat my patients as a whole, but was also trained to become a humble, yet a well-educated doctor who is prepared for continuous development and life-long learning. We’ve had many opportunities to perform hands-on procedures & more importantly, learned how to approach our patients in a professional manner. In general, I think that the MBBS programme in CUCMS has succeeded to nurture my passion to care, and prepare us as holistic doctors.
From the very beginning the Faculty of Medicine has done a wonderful job in educating me to become a good doctor. The learning sessions are fun and easy to understand. Preparing study materials on our own before coming to class really stimulate and improve the way I study. Interactive lectures and PBL sessions are also fun as lecturer actively probe us with questions and ideas that make us think so that we have a better picture. All the lecturers are awesome as I could feel their love and care moulding us become safe and best doctors. In the clinical years, even though travelling to the different hospitals can be challenging, the vast exposures to different patient backgrounds and hospital environments are precious. The support from all the hospitals’ doctors and staff are awesome. Mentor mentee programme is unique in CUCMS. We could express ourselves and share our thoughts during the sessions. I think CUCMS MBBS programme is awesome!
