[Elective Posting/Clinical Attachment in Malaysia]

Soon we’ll be having our winter holiday and most of us will take this time to go back home to Malaysia. So, why not take this opportunity to do clinical attachment at your nearby hospital.

So, what are the procedures?

A. Required Documents:
– University Letter Head
– application form

B. Steps:
1. You may request the university letter head from Miss Nesreen at the IUMP office, lowest floor of the convention center. You need to ready your full name, ID number and the hospital you want to do your attachment. Receiving the letter head may take a while, hence you might be visiting her often.

2. Fill in the application form:


Scan all the documents and send them to the administration office of your desired hospital via mail, e-mail or directly to the office e.g. by a family member.

3. You will receive a reply mail, e-mail or phone call at least after 1-3 months (due to the processing and competition from other students learning in other countries). Therefore, apply early.

It is best to ask the assistance of family members to send the scanned documents directly to the administration office, thus a smoother process.

The hospitals’ procedure in applying may differ. Kindly do your research and refer in advance.

The above procedure can also be applied to university hospitals in Malaysia e.g. PPUM, PPUKM and HUSM, with a fee as they are under MOHE’s funding. Kindly refer the relevant websites.
