Undergraduate Education

  • Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery:


    The School is responsible for the teaching of biomedical sciences to first to fourth year medical students in the MBBS programme. The teaching, accomplished through lectures, tutorials and practical sessions, forms part of the integrated system-based MBBS curriculum. In addition, our teachers serve as case writers and tutors for problem-based learning, contribute to the teaching of medical humanities, as well as supervise students in research-attachment modules during the elective semester.
