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.

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.
