Melaka Manipal Medical College Malaysia
The Melaka Manipal Medical College Malaysia (MMMC) is one of the newest institutions of the Manipal Education and Medical Group (MEMG), which comprises two universities, 18 professional colleges, 17 other institutions of higher learning, 18 secondary and primary schools, 11 hospitals and 8 rural health centres. MEMG has campuses in India, Malaysia, Nepal and Dubai and twinning programs with universities in USA, UK, Australia, Germany, Nepal and the West Indies
MMMC has its origins in unique circumstances-being the first Indo-Malaysian joint venture in professional education. The agreement was signed in the presence of the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and India in New Delhi in 1993 and the state government of Melaka subsequently became a partner in the project. In every aspect, this institution represents a true partnership. The preclinical training is done in Manipal, India and the clinical training in Melaka, Malaysia. The Malaysian government has provided the Melaka and Muar General Hospitals for the clinical training. The MBBS degree is awarded by the Manipal Academy of Higher Education, a deemed university.
MMMC was set up with the objective of providing a professional education opportunity for Malaysian students and students from neighbouring countries and to meet the growing health manpower needs of Malaysia and the region.
The Honorable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohammad has envisaged that by 2020 Malaysia should be a fully developed country in all respects. In regards to higher education, he made an important speech on August 24, 1993, at the foundation stone laying ceremony of the Gombak campus of the International Islamic University on the need for developing higher education in the country. On that occasion, he stated that Malaysia should be developed into an international centre for higher education to attract students from ASEAN and other countries, who now go to developed countries to study at great cost.
MMMC is inspired by this vision and we seek to provide professional academic programs of the highest standards. We invite you to visit our campus or to contact us for further information.
