About Penang Medical College
PMC, wholly-owned by the RCSI and UCD has been providing the highest quality medical education to internationally recognised standards since 1996. 2016 marked our 20th Anniversary.
The first graduation ceremony took place in 2001. Since then, over a thousand doctors have graduated from PMC, joining a global community of world-class doctors. PMC graduates have taken up senior positions in countries as diverse as Malaysia, Ireland, Australia, the United States, Brunei, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. A report by the Institute for Health Systems Research, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, House Officer Performance in Malaysia 2009-2011, placed PMC among the top medical schools in preparing their graduate doctors for their early careers.
The PMC campus is centrally located close to the heart of George Town and within a five-minute walk of Penang Hospital, where most of the clinical teaching takes place.
Located at the Sepoy Lines grounds, a four-storey academic complex houses the modern facilities essential for training medical professionals. It includes a 200-seat lecture theatre, multimedia room, video conferencing facilities, research laboratory, student study areas, cafeteria and surau.
The adjacent Student Centre includes a library, surau, student study areas, sick bay, recreational area, gym and games.
The PMC Clinical Skills and Education Centre in Seberang Jaya was launched in 2015 and is located next to the Seberang Jaya Hospital. The Centre hosts additional facilities for students including clinical skills laboratories, seminar rooms, a student area, Multimedia and Resource Centre. To further facilitate students’ on-call practical training, the new centre also provides student accommodation which will reduce travel and ensure optimal use of time.
