Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)
  About the course


Medicine is a branch of health science concerned with restoring and maintaining health and wellness. Broadly, it is the practical science of preventing and curing diseases. However, medicine often refers more specifically to matters dealt with by physicians and surgeons.

Medicine is both an area of knowledge (a science), and the application of that knowledge (by the medical profession and other health professionals such as nurses). The various specialized branches of the science of medicine correspond to equally specialized medical professions dealing with particular organs or diseases. The science of medicine is the knowledge of body systems and diseases, while the profession of medicine refers to the social structure of the group of people formally trained to apply that knowledge to treat disease.


The medical encounter or patient-doctor relationship is an important part of what medicine is about (there are other relationships between health professionals and patients that are equally important, e.g. nurse - patient). A person with a health problem or concern sees a doctor for help. The practice of medicine combines both science and art. Science and technology are the evidence base for many clinical problems for the general population at large. The art of medicine is the application of this medical knowledge in combination with intuition and clinical judgment to determine the proper diagnoses and treatment plan for this unique patient.

The doctor needs to:

develop a relationship with the patient
gather data (medical history and physical examination combined with laboratory or imaging studies)
analyze and synthesize that data (assessment and/or differential diagnosis), and then
develop a treatment plan (more testing, therapy, watchful observation, referral and follow-up).
The medical encounter is documented in a medical record. One method that is used is called the problem-oriented medical record (POMR), which includes a problem list of diagnoses and a "SOAP" method of documentation for each visit:

S - Subjective, the medical history of the problem from the point-of-view of the patient.
O - Objective, the physical examination and any laboratory or imaging studies.
A - Assessment, is the medical decision-making process including the differential diagnoses and most probable diagnoses.
P - Plan, the way resolve the problem and monitor progress


All medical graduates have to complete an internship or housemanship after graduation. This can be done in Malaysia or in some overseas countries.
