Student Welfare

Student Welfare

The Deputy Dean (student affairs) and Deputy Registrar’s office look after the welfare of the students in the College. It involves conducting a number of programmes to assist and support students on academic and non-academic matters.

 

Orientation Programme

Students are briefed on matters pertaining to their programmes/ courses, fees, accommodation and the rules and regulations of the College. They are also advised on personal safety and security matters. The orientation programme is conducted for new students going to India as well students returning back from India.  This helps them to settle into the college environment.

 

Mentorship Programme

Counselling services are also available to all students. For this purpose, the college has a mentorship programme to assist students to improve their academic performance, to counsel, provide support, to advise and assist students who have problems to overcome their difficulties.  Students who have emotional problems that cannot be handled by the Mentors are referred for professional help.

 

Each teaching faculty will usually have 15 to 20 mentees under their supervision and each student will be assigned a Mentor/ Academic Advisor throughout his/ her study at MMMC. 

 

The objectives of the Mentorship Scheme are to:

  • Provide academic counselling
  • Give personal and professional guidance
  • Support extra-curricular and welfare activities of the students
  • Arrange remedial measures for students who are at the risk of failure
  • Identify those with learning difficulties and personal problems

Students who have settled into the programme benefit from the Mentorship Scheme, as it will provide:

  • Encouragement to their learning process.
  • Guidance to improve their academic performance.
  • Advice on regularly attending classes and actively participating in group activities.
  • Suggestions on how to maximize and focus their academic endeavours. 
  • Medical Insurance

All bona fide students of the college are provided with free Group Hospital and Surgical Insurance.  It provides a 24-hour, worldwide coverage against illness, accidents and or injury resulting from various stipulated causes. 

 

Extra Curricular Activities

Students can expect to benefit from a holistic learning environment at the college. There are student activities to enrich the social, cultural and sporting interests of students. All students are welcome to join the MMMC Student Council activities as they enable them to broaden their horizons through the exchange of experiences among the student community within the college and other medical colleges locally and abroad.
