Our Specialty Training


Malaysian doctors may pursue FMS training using the Irish College of General Practice (ICGP) curriculum and assessment. The curriculum is a contextualised version of the the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP) curriculum. Assessment is by ICGP leading to MICGP (membership of ICGP), with all exams contextualised for Malaysia.

Delivery of the training will take place in local schemes. Delivery of training for each trainee will take place wholly within one scheme, undertaking both the two years in hospital practice and two years in Family Medicine clinics within the scheme.

This is an exciting and innovative post graduate training programme leading to qualification as a Family Medicine Specialist. The programme was invited by the Ministry of Health in recognition of the value of primary care, and as an acknowledgement of what a strong workforce with FMS training can add to the overall health of a nation.

MInTFM works with an experienced enthusiastic team of committed Family Medicine Specialists, both as scheme directors and trainers. I encourage you to look closely at what this programme has to offer you and hope to welcome many of you to MInTFM in the near future.
