Associate Professor David Adams

The aims of the PU-RCSI School of Medicine are to provide excellence in education and training and to produce young doctors who will more than meet the needs of the Malaysian people. As the only Irish medical degree programme that can be fully completed in Malaysia, we are fully committed to our students and ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge of human structure and function, what can go wrong and how to manage problems which might arise.

We differ from the regular MBBS programme by awarding the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of the Art of Obstetrics (MB BCh BAO) from the National University of Ireland and the Licentiate LRCP & SCI from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

During the 5-year medical degree programme at Perdana University, students acquire the understanding and clinical competence to deliver, under supervision, a high level of patient care and the ability to communicate and interact effectively with patients and colleagues. Students will develop the confidence and skills to allow them to undertake leadership roles for healthcare provision in Malaysia.

We seek talented and bright young people who want to study medicine in Malaysia, will always put the patient first, who are adaptable and are prepared to undertake a subject that will involve lifelong learning. Medicine is a wonderful and very rewarding career.
