Eligibility Criteria:

Interested candidates must meet the following requirements:


Successful completion of the 12th grade with a minimum of 50 percent in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.

Clearing of the NEET exam.

Physics, Chemistry, and Biology should be the main subjects in the 12th grade.

Proficiency in the English language.




Course Structure:

MBBS in Malaysia is a six-year program, which includes a one-year compulsory internship. The curriculum focuses on providing students with theoretical and practical knowledge during five years of academic study. However, it is advised to check the course structure from college to college, as the program duration may vary.



However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Medical Commission (NMC) in India mandated in 2022 that foreign medical graduates (FMGs) who completed their fourth and fifth years online must complete a two-year internship instead of one after their MBBS. In March, the Supreme Court requested the Central Government to help resolve the conflict for FMGs.
