The first phase of 2 ½ years (5 semesters) is conducted in the Manipal Campus in India. The basic sciences and pre-clinical subjects are covered in 4 semesters. During the 5th semester, students commence their clinical training. This semester in India exposes them to the morbidity profile related to the prevailing socio-economic conditions.

The second phase of 5 semesters (2½ years) is at the Melaka Campus, Malaysia. Clinical training is undertaken at the Melaka General Hospital,  Hospital Pakar Sultanah Fatimah, Jasin Hospital, Tangkak Hospital and at the Community Health Centres. The academic programme is student-centred with emphasis on self-directed learning, group discussions and problem-based learning.

The internal standards and quality are ensured through the office of the Dean and Heads of Department at MMMC as well as Heads of Departments from the affiliated hospitals.

External standards and quality are assured through periodic review by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) as well as the Malaysian Medical Council.
