The Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) is a five-year program offered through the International Medical School (IMS) at the MSU main campus in Shah Alam, Malaysia.  The MBBS programme at MSU is accredited and approved by the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC)

Accorded ‘Excellent Status University’ twice on the national university-rating system SETARA by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE), MSU has also been awarded ‘The Most Entrepreneurial Private University, 2016’ by MoHE. A most recent accreditation, placing MSU on world-class standards, was the QS 2016 Rating, which awarded 5 Stars to the university for its Teaching, Employability, Facilities, Social Responsibility, and Inclusiveness.

Meticulously crafted to enhance graduate potential, the university’s programs of study are among the best in the region, producing graduates that are a popular pick among employers.

The MBBS curriculum is designed in adherence to the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) guidelines and approval by MMC. The MBBS program presents a continually expanding level of medical experiences. In the early years of study, the basic medical sciences are taught in the context relevant to patient care. Later in the course, clinical teaching builds upon and reinforces this strong scientific foundation.
