Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The national aspiration was for Malaysia to be a leading hub for education in the region and this was aligned to MMMC’s charter of providing quality medical education at an affordable price. This led to the signing of an agreement in New Delhi in 1993, between Manipal Academy of Higher Education and the college witnessed by both the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and India. The college was the first Indo-Malaysian collaboration in education and was among the pioneers of private medical education in the country.

MMMC admitted its first batch of MBBS students in 1997 with the support of experienced medical educationists from Manipal Academy of Higher Education[ MAHE] who helped in the implementation of the medical programme. This consistency in the quality of education is one of the reasons behind the strategic tie-up that resulted in the formation of MMMC, and it is a relationship that has proven extremely successful due to MMMC’s own vision of serving the nation by providing quality medical education and producing highly competent doctors.

MMMC has been growing from strength to strength in the delivery of its courses, as evidenced by the recognition gained from the Malaysian Medical Council, which recently bestowed MMMC with full accreditation for 5 years, a singular honour for a local private institution. This has been the result of a long-standing and fruitful relationship between MMMC and the Malaysian Government to address the education needs of the nation by providing quality, affordable medical education while meeting all the requirements of the regulatory bodies.
