The curriculum is a contextualized version of the ICGP curriculum. Assessment is conducted by the ICGP, leading to the Membership of the Irish College of General Practitioners (MICGP), with all exams contextualized for Malaysia.

The training will be delivered within local schemes. Each trainee will complete their training within one scheme, undertaking two years in hospital practice and two years in Family Medicine clinics within that scheme.
