Educational Facilities

Medical Education Building

The Genes to Society curriculum – upon which Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine's curriculum is based – was developed by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in response to researchers’ ever-expanding understanding of the human genome. In an era when new genetic variations and their relationships to disease are being discovered daily, the curriculum moves medicine into a realm where each patient’s disease becomes unique. Instead of studying “classic” cases in medicine, students learn how individual variation – in biology, genetic inheritance, environmental factors and family life – contributes to patients’ health.

Genes to Society Curriculum Influences Building Design

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine first launched the Genes to Society curriculum in a state-of-the-art building specifically designed to support it. Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine's Medical Education Building will meet the same demands of integrating basic science and clinical practice from the student’s first day of medical school.
