The Islamic Science University of Malaysia (USIM) is a government funded university that was established in the year 2000. The founding of USIM was inspired by the vision of the then Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, to uphold and integrate Islamic studies into tertiary education and science, thereby incorporating Islam into the national education mainstream.
Unlike the rest of the university counterparts who moved to Nilai, Negeri Sembilan in August 2005, the faculty moved next door to Menara B MPAJ after necessary renovations were carried out to improve the learning and teaching facilities as well as a good working environment for its citizens. This is to accommodate the students as their clinical years will be carried out at the nearby brand-new high-tech Ampang Hospital.
Now USIM has 8 faculties including the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, based in the Pandan Indah campus, very near to the Kuala Lumpur city centre.
The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences began operations with an intake of 29 medical students in 2005. This first batch of 29 have now just graduated as medical doctors and all are serving as medical officers in hospitals within the Malaysian Ministry of Health. At present, there are 317 medical students pursuing their medical training at USIM’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The faculty was recently conferred full accreditation by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency and the Malaysian Medical Council.
The medical degree offered at USIM is unique where the future doctors are trained not only in the fields of medicine and surgery but also in higher Islamic studies. Compulsory courses include Quranic memorization, hadith and sunnah of the Prophet (s.a.w.), Arabic language, history of medicine in Islam, fiqh and many others. Thus, an all rounded education is provided with the aim of producing medical practitioners who are leaders for the Muslim ummah.
From KUIM and now changed to USIM, FPSK is still one of the highest recognition faculty in USIM yesterday , today and tomorrow.
The School of Medical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia was first established in June 1979. In the early development of the school, the pre-clinical years were carried out in the Penang campus while the clinical years were conducted at the Kelantan campus. The school was fully operational at Kubang Kerian, Kelantan by June 1990. The Kubang Kerian, Kelantan Campus was established on 220 acres of land and it encompasses the School of Medical Sciences and the USM Teaching Hospital, which was established in October 1983. The move to the Kelantan campus consolidated further the academic, service and research activities of the school.
More recently, two new schools have been estalished. The School of Dental Sciences and Allied Health Sciences are now also fully operational. The kelantan campus is now known as the Health Campus, USM and also houses the Kelantan branch of INFORMM, a research institute for research in molecular medicine. Kubang Kerian is 6.6 km from Kota Bharu, the state capital of Kelantan. Kota Bharu has a population of around 420,000 while Kelantan state population is 1.2 million.
The main Universiti Sains Malaysia ( USM ) campus is located in Minden, Penan and was established in 1969. USM was founded after an agreement made on a resolution approved by the Penang State Legislative Council in 1962, which suggested that a university college be established in the state. An area in Sungai Ara was identified and later the foundation stone was placed by the then Prime Minister, Y.T.M Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj on the 7th of August 1967.
In 1969, the University of Penang was established in responce to the need for a larger campus with a more conducive environment, appropriate to the needs of the future of the country. In April 1969, Professor Hamzah Sendut was elected the first Vice-Chancellor. Two months later, a group of 57 students was accepted to begin their studies. Since the area in Sungai Ara could not be developed as fast as required, the group was placed at the Malaysian Teachers’ Training College at Bukit Gelugor on loan from the Education Ministry. In 1971, the campus, which was originally planned to be situated in Sungai Ara moved to its present site, Minden, an area measuring 500 acres.
USM has since grown to now include the main campus in Penang, Health Campus in Kelantan and the Engineering Campus in Seberang Perai. Currently there are 24 Schools, 5 Institutes and 14 Centres of Excellence with a total students population ( undergraduate and postgraduate ) of more than 35,000.
The idea was conceived with the formation of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences on the 1st December 2002 which was located at Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The programmes offered were the Degree in Medicine and Diplomas in Environmental Health, Nursing, Medical Laboratory Technology, Medical Imaging, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy. On 15th March 2004, it was split into the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Health Sciences.
The first intake of 20 medical students was admitted in June 2003 and they graduated in April 2008. The number of student intake has grown over the years. By 2011, the faculty has grown impressively and our current number of student intake is around 200 per year.

The MAHSA University Medical Faculty offers its students the best of modern and traditional mode of learning which is subject-based, system-synchronized curriculum that is both pragmatic and modern in approach.
Whilst it is lecture-driven by highly experienced teachers, innovative methods such as problem-based learning (PBL), e-learning, early clinical exposure (ECE) and small group sessions (with movies, debates and role play) are integrated into it to boost students’ enthusiasm.
Here at MAHSA University, our students’ success is our success. We maintain an optimum teacher: student ratio of 1:5. Our faculty members are handpicked from the local and international pool of highly experienced teachers, many having done more than 30 years of teaching. They create wholesome and warm learning environments which are conducive for student-active sessions such as PBL. Their teaching skills are further enhanced by our modern facilities featuring ultra-modern wet and dry anatomy labs, Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) and integrated digital labs to support e-learning, technologically-enabled small group isles and lecture theaters as well as a conventional-cum-virtual library.
The state-of-the-art technology enables students to learn and comprehend difficult subjects better at an accelerated pace. Though many of the medical schools globally are shunting from the use of cadaver in learning anatomy, in MAHSA University, cadavers ironically lend a touch of “gross excitement” to the learning of anatomy, while physiology and pharmacology comes to life by the use of digital laboratories. Small group sessions, especially in the soft skills module offer personalised attention, with continuing support from the entire staff, ensuring the success of our students.
The Melaka Manipal Medical College (MMMC) was conceived from the ‘Look East Policy’ of the former Prime Minister, P.V. Narasimha Rao who recognised the need for greater South-South cooperation in the economic, education and social sectors in line with the government’s objective of making the country a leading educational hub in the region and to provide more Malaysian students the opportunity to achieve their aspirations to become doctors and healthcare professionals.
