Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)
The MAHSA MBBS programme is a fully accredited home-grown programme that aims to graduate young doctors imbued with the knowledge, skills and competencies required of medical professionals of the 21st Century. The MAHSA Medical Programme is an integrated one that exposes students to the study of Medicine as a whole. Compared to the traditional system which is subject-based, Phase 1 of the MAHSA MBBS Programme is an organ-based phase that brings together all aspects of the Basic Sciences required of a medical student. Phase 2 is a hospital-based programme.
During these years, the students are rotated through the various medical disciplines via rotations in three teaching hospitals. A Personal & Professional Development module runs through the five-year programme to emphasise ethical and professional practice as well as patient safety principles. An understanding of the medicolegal issues in current practice is also provided.
