Medical studies

Thus, to master the profession of surgeon, it will take 8 or 9 years. To practice as doctors in their country of origin, foreign graduates of Malaysian universities must go through a procedure of legalization and recognition of the diploma in their country or a third country nostrification. In case of mutual recognition of diplomas agreement between Malaysia and the country of the graduate, legalization is not necessary. After the end of basic training, students still go through several stages in Malaysia to acquire their subsequent specialization: boarding school, clinical residency and targeted residency.

The internship is the first level of medical training after university. It is mandatory to complete it to become a medical practitioner. The boarding school involves a lot of practice: under the tutelage of the head of department, students can formulate hypotheses for the treatment and diagnosis of patients. The internship is not part of the professional experience of the student insofar as it is not a direct medical activity. Foreign students can study in a boarding school on the basis of international agreements between health establishments or for a fee. The application conditions depend on the university and the training: it can be exams, a test or an interview. Duration of internship studies: 1 year.

The residency consists of the in-depth study of a bidang perubatan and it is the final grade of postgraduate medical studies. In residency, the emphasis is on the acquisition of comprehensive knowledge in a given profession. Completing the residency successfully will not only allow you to work as a medical practitioner, but also to practice in the private sector. Duration of residency studies: 2 years.
