The MBBS and the BDS courses offered by Melaka Manipal Medical College is a twinning programme where the first part of it will be in the Manipal campus, India and the second part in the Melaka campus in Malaysia.
The facilities in both, the Manipal and Melaka campuses are second to none in that they fully provide for a well rounded education, academic as well as social. When they arrive in Manipal, Malaysian students enrolled in the twinning programme will find that most of their needs will be met satisfactorily. Students can join clubs for music and fine arts, enjoy literary pursuits, meditation, yoga, debating, photography and language classes. Manipal’s geographic location also provides unlimited opportunities for recreation, adventure, sea sports and hobbies. In addition, the campus has playgrounds and courts for cricket, hockey, football, tennis, basketball, badminton and volleyball, as well as swimming pools, gyms and athletics track.
Since its inception, MMMC has successfully integrated the Manipal ethos into its Malaysian curriculum, its faculty and its students. The same passion for, and philosophy of providing quality education balanced with individual life pursuits, has been successfully replicated in the Melaka campus and twinning programme. The facilities in the Melaka campus include various teaching and learning facilities, auditoriums, lecture halls, classrooms, science labs, skill labs, library and computer labs. Other amenities include student hostels, cafeterias, gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna, squash courts, football field and basketball court. The precise structure of the course and the facilities in the Melaka campus have been designed to leverage on Manipal’s extensive experience in providIing medical education for over 55 years.
From the Interact building that houses the administration offices and faculty to the hostels and dedicated teaching facilities and from the various sporting opportunities to the social clubs and associations, MMMC students are able to fully develop into the mature, socially-integrated doctors that they aspire to be.
