A. Master of Medicine (Ophthalmology)
 
The programme is mixed-module, slightly similar structured from the earlier programmes in Universiti Malaya and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. However, being of the third generation has its own unique variations. Our programme offers a two year-in campus placement for distant learning (PJJ) candidates which puts them under direct supervision and allows them a better exposure and access to facilities available in the campus including medical library, computer aided laboratory, clinical skill center and highly acclaimed research backups. The post graduate teaching courses are run by both local as well as international faculty. Teaching staff strength since 2004 was at all time high of 7-9 lecturers or more.
 
The minimum candidature period is 4 years and maximum of 7years.  The course is divided into three phases:
Started in 1997.
