About Kulliyyah of Medicine & Health Sciences

Kulliyyah of Medicine & Health Sciences (KPSK) was first established in 2010 at the Mergong Campus, Alor Setar.

The MBBS program takes 5 years; The first 2 years (Years 1 & 2) are categorized as pre -clinical phase, the next 2 years (Years 3 & 4) are the basic clinical phase and the last year (Years 5) is the clinical phase. In the first two years students are exposed to theories and concepts related to medicine through classes, tutorials, PBL, SLP and so on at the Kuala Ketil campus. In the last 3 years, students have been placed in several major hospitals in Kedah, namely; Kulim Hospital (Year 3), Sultan Abdul Halim Hospital (Year 4) and Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital (Year 5). In this phase, learning is done in the hospital ward with patients. Year 4 students also underwent placements in Family Medicine and Public Health at the Alor Setar City Health Clinic, Kuala Kedah Health Clinic and Kota Setar Health Office.

The uniqueness of this programme is that it emphasizes on Islamic value throughout execution of the programme. 

  • The curriculum is balanced with Islamic values.
  • Professional graduates with good character and goodness (a good example).
  • Polite in action and speech.
  • Patience in serving and trust to Allah to cure the patients.
  • Always be grateful for every success in treating patients.
