Introduction

RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC) is an Irish Medical University owned by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and University College Dublin (UCD), two world-renowned medical universities in Ireland.

The University has been providing the highest quality medical education to internationally recognised standards since the institution’s inception in 1996.

Studying medicine with RUMC has an international appeal as students transcend borders to the RCSI or UCD in Ireland for the pre-clinical years (2.5 years) and then to the RUMC Campus in Malaysia for their clinical training years (2.5 years). Students also have the opportunity for experience in almost any other country. Graduates are awarded globally recognised medical degrees of the National University of Ireland.

Nearly 1,700 medical doctors have graduated and practice in Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Ireland, UK, Malta, Australia, New Zealand, USA and many other countries.

The University is situated in the middle of a regional healthcare hub of Penang Island, strategically close to other healthcare and education sites, and the heart of George Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
