Right, I have to edit that. I consider it a local med school since the campus in Bangalore is an Off-shore campus of MSU (MSU is a local Uni).

if i am not mistaken, the 'offshore' campus is an existing medical school affiliated to the uni of bangalore.....they just make an arrangement to 'buy' the med student places to sell to unsuspecting msian parents hell bent on making their children into doctors, the dream they could not realise in their time......

that is smu.......different lah.......

this is a relatively unknown upstart uni.....with obvious strong political connections

if i am not mistaken, they attempted a tie up with harvard earlier for postgraduate studies, but of course once harvard gets wind of the reality on the ground, they lost no time in getting out........

it's amazing how the most difficult course to run for any university, medicine/dentistry, sprouts out from very unknown, new, and unbenchmarked universities........can only happen in msia...... doh.gif

Correction, MSU actually built an offshore campus in Bangalore and has started the program since 2006.
Collaboration was made not with the Uni. of Bangalore (they dont have MBBS, only Bangalore medical college conducts MBBS) but with MS Ramaiah Medical College and MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital.

MSU did not buy any "medical seats" from MS Ramaiah Medical College, but instead offered their own medical seats to Malaysians independent of that college since the facilities, lab and buildings are separate. Both MSU-IMS and MS Ramaiah medical college are separate entities, collaboration exists between the two in terms of medical expertises (professors and lecturers), training hospital and other related matters.

How did I know this? I am studying there right now.

Read the articles below:

Relatively unknown?... I guess MSU don't get much publicity being an IPTS and Bumiputra-owned at that. It was previously known as KUTPM. Regarding strong political connections, that is a good thing is it not?

You do realize that India is a good destination for MBBS dont you? Ask those in MMMC as well if you dont believe me.

i stand corrected on the actual arrangements between msu and the obvious technical partner MS Ramaiah Medical College.......

india like most 3rd world countries (msian included) have a problem with keeping consistent standards for everything, including the training, and selection of future doctors......hence there is wide spread of standards of medical education in india, from the very excellent to the appalling......

questions remains why msu needs to resort to, and the india partner wants to allow, the use of indian expertise and hospitals and patients in the training of msians.....

also, if both facility shares the same teachers and clinical material, questions arise on how that impacts on the teacher:student and patient:student ratios.......

the indian gov has also set restrictions on the number/percentages of foreigners in their medical programmes, so how is this programme affected?.......i suspected the qualification is/will not be recognised by the imc and india moh.........

bottom line is, isn't there a better way of managing the selection and training of future doctors for msia........??

politics should stay firmly out of education......but that is of course wishful thinking in the msian context........every political party wants to control/set up a university........

which also explains the dismal state of education in msian, particularly medical education........

i see variable reports of msia reaching the un target of 1:600 ratio by 2013 or 2015......

there will of course be considerable maldistribution.......but even as we type now, it is reaching saturation point in the klang valley, especially for gp clinics.....

you can't turn off the production of doctors like a tap, thus yes there is likely to be a surplus of doctors in parts of msia by 2015, and a likelyhood of absolute surplus by 2020, at current production levels......

the other problem msia will face, is the broad spectrum of quality of these new doctors from such disparate sources.......

there is just NO centralised, coordinated, standardised, and future-need-based planning in the production of our future doctors.......disparate political vested interests decides the day......


Added on December 29, 2008, 11:04 pmthe reputation of an academic institution comes not from whether it is ipts, the advertisements and publicity, or worse, being bumiputra owned (as if that should have any bearing at all), but from the strength of the programmes, the breath of the academic staffs, and the quality of the products, ie the graduates........so yes it is relatively unknown.......

The problem that currently hinders MSU from starting a medical school in Malaysia is the absence of a training hospital (particularly in Shah Alam and its surrounding area) and the difficulty in obtaining medical experts. In order to overcome these problems, MSU has instead set up its medical school in India itself. Thus, the problem of medical experts unwilling to relocate to Malaysia to teach has been solved.

The medical college and hospital in which MSU is currently collaborating with agrees to supply the training hospital and medical experts simply because it benefits them (monetarily). By doing so, MSU gains the benefit of having the place, resources and man power to start a medical school even though its 100% abroad.

Ah. Here is the thing. Teacher: student ratio as well as student: patient ratio is good. There are just too many people in Bangalore and thus too many people getting sick with various kinds of ailments.

MS Ramaiah medical college and hospital (or rather, India as whole) has abundant medical experts. The lecturers for the medical subjects only teaches permanently in either one of the medical colleges and not both at the same time. Lecturers from Manipal and other medical colleges in India have also been "recruited" to teach in MSU-IMS.

As for the training hospitals, there are another two major hospitals currently used for the purpose of teaching MSU-IMS students namely Baptist Hospital and Saint Theressa Hospital.

Indeed this MBBS program will not be recognized by Indian Medical Council (IMC).

This program is not meant for practice in India. Its a Malaysian program done in India with the aid of Indian resources and experties. MMC, MARA and MOH representatives had visited MSU-IMS several times in the past to assess the quality and progress of the program. So far, things are looking good.

erm.. i would say that this is a informative thread..

but if i know relatively nothing about medicine course such as "how to choose a better IPTS that offer a better quality education" , mb you should point out some of the IPTS to be considered first before moving to other IPTS for various factors such as distance or the total cost or cost : quality ratio.

that would help even more students..

Some have been recognized and listed in MMC website.
Unfortunately a majority of the listed med skools are not yet recognized by MMC at least not until their pioneer batch have graduated and assessed by MMC.

Could have built the campus elsewhere right? Somewhere with a teaching hospital...

"difficulty in obtaining medical experts" rises because of unwillingness of paying a higher salary to attract them...that's the only reason i can think of right now...

despite your explanation, i still find it strange...a LOCAL university to send malaysians to india, and let indian nationals teach them medicine, for the purpose of treating malaysian patients....i'm sure local doctors are more well versed with our local diseases and demographics....but then, you may argue with the fact that we do send students to UK and Australia....hmmmm =/

this exemplify the messed up way medical education is 'planned' and implemented in msia......

the 'planning' is not based on the needs of the citizens, and the needs of the nation.........it is done with vested interests overriding the principles of standards, quality, equity, accessibility, and safety.........

every political party wants one.........

every ethnic community wants one........

every state wants one.........

every connected businessman wants one........

and this resulted in the very strange phenomena of med schools in search of a teaching hospital!!!!

normally, in the natural scheme of things, as a community grows, the health services and hospitals also grow with it.......on reaching a critical point, the local university, usually the most established one, will be asked to set up a medical school......a well established system of healthcare is already in place, with all the local expertises already available in the local hospitals......and the university easily taps into this existing medical expertise, to set up the local med school.......

it is the opposite in msia.........novice universities with no track record are on political/racial/monetary grounds given the right to set a medical school........and they go about looking for somewhere where medical expertise is available to do that........and in extreme cases, end up in other countries' hospitals!!!!

malaysia boleh.........sigh......
