Highly skilled medical doctors play a significant role and are urgently needed in healthcare service provision. Hence, the new Doctor of Medicine (M.D) program provides qualified applicants an opportunity to join this exciting and challenging profession.
The Doctor of Medicine program is designed in accordance with the harmonized national competency-based curriculum, focusing on skill acquisition of students, with its own laboratories equipped with movable full-body life size manikins. The manikins allow students to interact with full confidence while receiving an audio feedback in real-time.
Some special features of the manikins are simulation of advanced online Maternal and Neonatal Birthing, Physical Diagnosis Skills, Electronic Throat Examination, Comprehensive Puncture and Percussion Examination, Emergency Training, and many other Comprehensive Specialized Clinical simulations. The simulators also display various vital signs, injection training, airway management, standard nasal and oral intubation, CPR, AED, physical therapy, ECG, etc. Thus students will not leave without practice due to lack of patients to learn on.
Other special features of the program are the provision of cutting-edge fully equipped medical laboratories for anatomy, histology, physiology, biochemistry and pathology, with smart classrooms and thousands of new medical books.
This program has also incorporated additional modules such as healer’s art and physician lifestyle management, emphasizing ethics and professionalism, as well as introduction to philosophy as an added value to the program.
Do you consider yourself a science geek? Then you have the Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program where you can enjoy your career as an important player in the healthcare sector.
A career in MLT will enable you to do more than carry out automated tests on patient specimens. As a medical laboratory technologist you will perform more complex tests and have an important input in evaluating new laboratory procedures and conducting operational research. Medical laboratory technologists are also clinical laboratory scientists, as they perform tests to diagnose diseases and monitor treatment progress.
In this program, students will have access to more practice in clinical laboratories in order to gain diagnostic testing competency and the opportunity to learn about human health problems, medical technology, special laboratory protocols, writing skills, and other related topics. Such knowhow and skills will provide them with a competitive edge for prospective employers.
Upon completion of the MLT program, interested students may even proceed to various specializations, such as in Microbiology, Hematology, Immunology, Clinical Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Cytotechnology, etc.
