A Message from the President

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought an unprecedented degree of uncertainty into our lives. I am fully aware of the increased stress in your lives and the fact that different individuals respond in various different ways. As President of RUMC, I have had multiple communications over the period of time since the introduction of MCO on March 18, 2020. Many of these communications have been from individual/group of students and parents – which often express widely divergent opinions. I fully understand that in times of uncertainty, students & parents will look for certainty. RUMC is dedicated to communicating with you the arrangements that exist at every point in time – as we are subject to changes brought about by the pandemic.

We have continued to maintain three priorities throughout this period of uncertainty:
• To safeguard the safety of our students
• To maintain the integrity of the training
• To seek to graduate students ‘on time’

Nevertheless, students can rest assured that both RUMC academic and non-academic members are available at all times via email or call, should you require any further assistance.

Prospective students are welcomed to contact us at 04-217 1888 or email

We would like to advise everyone to adhere to the Malaysian Ministry of Health guidelines and practise the necessary safety measures to combat this global pandemic. You may also refer to our preventative guidelines below.

Your Safety is our Priority

Considering the current period of uncertainties due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we would like you to rest assured that we have taken into consideration every possible aspect to continue delivering the best medical education for our students.

Aside from ensuring adherence to the new normal, we are also well-prepared for any other eventualities that may come along the way.
