Certainly, I can provide you with some information on how to practice medicine in Malaysia as a foreign-trained medical graduate. To practice medicine in Malaysia as a foreign graduate, you need to obtain a license from the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC). The MMC is the regulatory body that oversees the registration and licensing of medical practitioners in Malaysia.
To apply for a license, you will need to complete the following steps:
- Register with the MMC – You will need to register with the MMC and provide all the necessary documents, including your academic qualifications, medical registration certificate, and other relevant documents.
- Take the necessary exams – You may need to take the Malaysian Medical Council Qualifying Examination (MMCQE) or the Malaysian Medical Licensing Examination (MMLEx) to demonstrate your medical knowledge and competency.
- Complete the compulsory internship – You may be required to complete a one-year compulsory internship in a recognized Malaysian hospital or health facility.
- Obtain a work permit – Once you have obtained your license, you will need to obtain a work permit to legally work as a medical practitioner in Malaysia.
It’s important to note that the process of obtaining a license to practice medicine in Malaysia can be lengthy and may require a significant amount of documentation and verification. It’s recommended that you contact the Malaysian Medical Council for detailed information on the requirements and procedures for foreign medical graduates.
I hope this information helps!
Here is some additional information that may be helpful to you:
- Registration with the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC): You will need to submit your academic qualifications, medical registration certificate, and other relevant documents to the MMC. You can find the list of required documents on the MMC website. You will also need to pay a registration fee.
- Exams: The Malaysian Medical Council Qualifying Examination (MMCQE) is a written exam that tests your knowledge in basic medical sciences, clinical skills, and ethics. The exam is held twice a year, in June and December, and you can register for the exam on the MMC website.
- Internship: The one-year compulsory internship can be done in a recognized Malaysian hospital or health facility. During the internship, you will be supervised by a registered medical practitioner and will gain practical experience in various medical fields.
- Work permit: To obtain a work permit, you will need to apply to the Malaysian Immigration Department. You will need to provide your license from the MMC, employment offer letter, passport, and other relevant documents. The work permit process can take several weeks to complete.
It’s important to note that the requirements for practicing medicine in Malaysia may vary depending on your specific situation. For example, if you have already completed an internship in India or have prior work experience, you may be able to skip some of the requirements.
I recommend contacting the Malaysian Medical Council and the Malaysian Immigration Department for more detailed information on the requirements and procedures for foreign medical graduates. They should be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information and answer any questions you may have.
