University Malaya Medical Centre Kuala Lumpur

We are Specialized In

The University of Malaya was initially set up in Singapore in 1949 as an amalgamation of the two premier institutions of higher education in colonial Malaya and Singapore. Following the independence of Malaya in 1957, two autonomous divisions of the university, one in Singapore and one in Kuala Lumpur, were established in 1959.

The University motto is “Ilmu Punca Kemajuan” (Knowledge is the Key to Success), so the Faculty of Medicine continues to strive to the best of ability to live up to this ideal. University Malaya Medical Centre is one of the organisations in the Ministry of Higher Education. Main objectives of UMMC are health services, learning and research.
