Medicine is one of the most sought-after profession particularly in India and the world. This year, a record 16.14 lakh candidates had registered for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) – that’s more than 19 candidates competing for one MBBS seat. If you are in India, it’s very likely that you are familiar with the name Manipal. Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG) is one of the most reputed organizations that has a 68-year legacy in medical education. Kasturba Medical College (KMC), which is India’s first private medical college is from the house of Manipal and is one of the most sought-after medical colleges among MBBS aspirants. Along with KMC, the Manipal Education Group also has reputed medical campuses in Malaysia, Nepal, and Antigua.
The competition keeps getting arduous each year as lakhs of students apply for a limited number of seats, which is why many choose to study medicine in premier universities abroad that are recognized by global health bodies like WHO, International Medical Education Directory (IMED) of the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) etc. While many universities offer MBBS and other medical courses, students prefer universities that are globally recognized and trusted.
Equipped with world-class universities and high education standards, Malaysian medical education is backed by a solid curriculum that is both pragmatic and modern in approach coupled with lectures delivered by highly experienced faculty who have had years of teaching experience and international exposure. In 1997, continuing Manipal’s legacy in medical education, Manipal University College Malaysia (MUCM), formerly known as Melaka Manipal Medical College was founded to fulfil the need for a world-class medical college in Malaysia. Over the last 24 years, MUCM (Manipal Group) has successfully produced over 10,000 health-care professionals, and it has been the single most significant contributor of health-care professionals to the Malaysian healthcare industry. The university college’s MBBS programs are also listed in the world directory of medical schools and is globally recognized.
