Phase III is conducted through discipline-based postings as below

While Years 1 & 2 focuses on basic medical sciences and offer 11 & 10 modules respectively, Year 3 focuses on Introduction to Basic Clinical Skills and knowledge. Later, Year 4 introduces different Specialties and the Year 5 concentrates on consolidation of the clinical skills and knowledge.
A module on Ethics and Medical Jurisprudence, Radiology and Community Medicine are delivered concurrently throughout the year of study.
The MBBS students of MSU are also encouraged to be involved in various Community Services to contribute to society.

- continuous medical education
- clinico-pathological conference
- lecture, and
The MBBS curriculum is designed in adherence to the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) guidelines and approval by MMC. The MBBS program presents a continually expanding level of medical experiences. In the early years of study, the basic medical sciences are taught in the context relevant to patient care. Later in the course, clinical teaching builds upon and reinforces this strong scientific foundation.
In comparison to many medical schools in Malaysia, one of the key features of MSU’s MBBS program is the emphasis on clinical communication skills and early clinical contact visit to medical practices, community care facilities and hospitals. MSU focuses on developing a qualified medical doctor who excels academically but portrays commendable soft skill as well. This is hoped to ensure a long term continuous effort from MSU towards the nations’ objectives in health care and services.
