Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)

Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)

This MBBS programme focuses on preparing students with extensive knowledge in medical sciences and clinical skills, to produce qualified and competent medical professionals who are equipped for the latest practices and developments in the industry. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on clinical training in medicine and surgery. Adopting an integrated problem-based curriculum, the bachelor programme is structured in two phases: Pre-Clinical (Phase 1) and Clinical Training (Phase 2).

Phase 1 (Year 1 & 2)
This phase focuses on the fundamental knowledge of medical sciences with exposure to clinical medicine, and is undertaken at BM College. Students will have access to specialised lab facilities and gain clinical training at local hospitals. Students will be taught history taking and physical examination techniques using both simulated patients and models, where they will learn how to identify patients’ problems and propose investigation plans for the patients. Upon completion of Phase 1, students will be equipped with knowledge in basic medical sciences and clinical skills.

Phase 2 (Year 3-5)
Phase 2 involves clinical rotations at designated hospitals from the Ministry of Health (MOH), where students will gain hands-on experience with patients. During Phase 2, students are rotated in all clinical disciplines required for undergraduate training, i.e. Internal Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Psychiatry, Orthopaedics, Ophthalmology, Otorhinolaryngology, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine and Anaesthesia & Intensive Care. Students will also gain further insight into fields of specialisation that may be of interest to them.
