1 Pathways to Specialization in Malaysia

2 Graduation!! =) Foundation (aka Housemanship aka *H/O) for 2 Years or District Hospital (Primary care, *M/O) 2 years Specialization Under MOH (Ministry of Health) Masters Programme (MMED) During the wait for an offer from MOH, you can Take MRCP exam part 1 SLAB (Skim Latihan Bumiputera) Apply (buat permohonan) during 2 nd year of housemanship. Attach to University Postgraduate Programme If pass, join the MRCP programme Registrar / Subspecialty training Junior Specialist!! *H/O –house officer M/O – medical officer

3 Post Graduate Specialization Programmes in Malaysia SLAB You can skip posting at district hospital because entry into MMED can be as fast as one year after housemanship (possibly) save 1-2 years MMED 4 year programme 1 yr basic surgery + exam, part 1 2 yrs rotation + exam, part 2 1 year work as registrar (6 mths in general medicine + 6 mths in a subspecialty of your choice) Present research in Part 3 exam The competing pool for training in subspecialty as registrar is only within the university No years saved (2 yrs H/O + 2 yrs M/O) MRCP less training in all the gen. med. subspecialties and more training focused on specific subspecialty of your choice less wholesome than MMED but faster (possibly save 1-2 yrs) but after passing MRCP exam, you will need to do 18 months training as registrar for accreditation and, you will have to queue up for places for subspecialty training the competing pool is whole Malaysia (harder to get a place)

4 Graduation Foundation 2 years District hospital cycle 2 years (primary care) (SLAB) 1 year (possibly) Apply to MOH and WAIT Stuck in primary care until decision MASTERS (MMED) Wait 6 months for accreditation Subspecialty training District hospital cycle 1 year (primary care) MRCP part 1 Apply transfer to major hospital setting 2 more exams Wait 18 months for accreditation Possibly wait for space for subspecialty training and seniority Meantime possibly

5 MMED vs MRCP 1 years of basic clinical stuff 2 years rotation of SUBspecialty rotations 3 months each 1 year as registrar MASTERS in INTERNAL MEDICINE 6 months accreditation Compete only with space in university Subspecialty training MRCP examinations No rotational training 18 months accreditation INDEFINITE wait (if in Malaysia)

6 SLAB = Skim latihan bumiputera -Adjustable geographical places -Can apply during 2 nd foundation year -Application into MMED could be completed as early as 1 year (possibly) post foundation -You have to work then -Higher INITIAL pay rise -After 10 years in fact – you will get higher pay rise -Similar to those who do research (and apply for associate professorship – not yet attained) -Work = Teaching (20%) -But 80% of time is given into bedside clinical teaching -Could possibly research to get higher status (professorship) and earn more money MOH = Ministry of health Subspecialty specific organ system

7 MMED = Masters in medicine (specifically internal medicine) Registrar = A Specialist Registrar or SpR is a doctor in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland (similar in Malaysia) who is receiving advanced training in a specialist field of medicine in order eventually to become a consultant (Masters). In surgery, also referred to as Higher Surgical Trainee or HST. MRCP = Purely examination -Must wait 18 months after graduation -6 months clinical practice (foundation) -Needs to involve emergency medical patients -To work for UK (GMC approved) -1 year if wish to work elsewhere -Can apply during 2 nd foundation year -Useful to cut short even foundation practice -Go straight into SUBspecialty training -Obviously ur not well rounded then and lacking in practice Application into MMED could be completed as early as 1 year (possibly) post foundation

8 Concept of specialist vs masters PHD Specialist –clinical degree Masters – academic research degree –Note: Malaysia only offers MASTERS –Prerequisite for specialist TRAINING in Malaysia OR MRCP PHD ranked highest –Academic RESEARCH degree –Nice to have but not necessary as a specialist (most dont) –May not be recognised in malaysia

9 PHD in HK Graduate1 st yearWork Showing english proficiency Work out lecture/pub lication Submit research project Prove stastistical knowledge 2 nd yearWork Attend 80% of planned seminars Presentati on of results 3 rd yearWork Specialise d instruction Data collection Process data Prepare for publication Pass state doctoral exam Publish 1 – 2 papers

10 Study Duration: Three years Study Duration: Four years 1.Clinical oncology and radiotherapyClinical oncology and radiotherapy 2.Clinical BiochemistryClinical Biochemistry 1.Anatomy, histology and embryology 2.Physiology and pathological physiology 3.Gynaecology and obstetrics 4.Hygiene, preventive medicine 5.Surgery 6.Clinical biochemistry 7.Clinical oncology and radiotherapy 8.Medical biophysics 9.Medical biology 10.Medical pharmacology 11.Medical chemistry and biochemistry 12.Medical immunology 13.Medical microbiology 14.Ophthalmology 15.Pathological anatomy 16.Paediatrics 17.Psychiatry 18.Radiology 19.Dentistry 20.Internal medicine PHD in HK Note: For more information on doing PhD in the Czech Republic, you can ask your respective University Study Departments. So far, Malaysia has not accreditate PhD from Czech Universities. But, PhD may be useful for those working overseas.
