Extending the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland's long-standing educational involvement with Malaysia an undergraduate medical programme has been established in Kuala Lumpur in conjunction with Perdana University.

Established in 2011, RCSI, through its partnership with Perdana University (PU), Kuala Lumpur, licenses and delivers its five-year Undergraduate Medical Programmme, as part of the Academic Medical Centre for Excellence. The programme is fully accredited by both the Irish and Malaysian Medical Councils.

The programme has 300 students, of which the first full-cycle cohort graduated in September 2016 with degrees awarded by RCSI and the National University of Ireland. The curriculum is delivered largely by a team of RCSI specialist academic leads, who liaise with RCSI Dublin on a range of academic topics.

Perdana University-Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (PU-RCSI) is part of a larger project – the Kuala Lumpur Academic Medical Centre (AMC) – a proposal to develop a centre of excellence for medicine in Malaysia.
