Vision and Mission
Our vision and mission is to achieve excellence in clinical services and the leader in academic and medical research.
The Department of Surgery has always played a prominent role since the inception of the IIUM Kulliyyah of Medicine (School of Medicine). From training medical undergraduates in 1999, the department has expanded its role by offering master degree programme in General surgery to local as well as overseas graduates since 2011.
Currently, the Department of Surgery has 20 full-time members participating in teaching, research and clinical activities at IIUM campus, its Sultan Ahmad Shah Medical Centre @ IIUM (SASMEC@IIUM) and its major affiliated hospital, Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan (HTAA). A wide range of subspecialties are available including Upper Gastrointestinal, Colorectal, Hepatobiliary, Breast, Vascular, Urology, Neurosurgery, Plastic & Reconstructive and Paediatric surgery.
The Surgery curriculum is designed to produce doctors who can combine scientific acumen with exemplary high moral qualities. One does not restrict oneself to the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of the patient’s disease only but also take cognizance of the patient’s spiritual, social and psychological needs. The curriculum aims to facilitate and prepare students towards engagement in the quest of knowledge and be willing to carry out research in one’s field for future scientific advancement. Nineteen weeks are allocated for the Surgery program. Eleven weeks in Phase II (Year Three) and 8 weeks in Phase III (Year 5).
Phase II (Year Three) is the first exposure in Surgery. In Year Three the emphasis will be more on acquiring clinical skills in history taking, physical examination and formulation of diagnosis. Understanding on pathophysiology of surgical diseases is again emphasized in this phase.
Phase III (Year Five) posting, in addition to what they learn in Phase II (Year Three), the management aspects are incorporated to prepare them as future surgical interns.
The postgraduate training programme in surgery is designed for the trainees to acquire knowledge, skills and competency in clinical surgery. The duration of the training programme will be four years and can be up to a maximum of seven years. Upon satisfactory completion of each of the components stipulated in the programme, the trainees will be eligible to appear for the final examination.
The programme is problem-centered and experience-based. Trainees carry out their duties and responsibilities under supervision. As the training progresses, the trainees will be given the task of incremental responsibility for patient care with a corresponding reduction in the level of supervision. Trainees are required to maintain log books and submit case reports. They should also conduct research and produce a dissertation prior to the final examination.
