MEDICINE AT MONASH
With over a decade ’ s experience in medical training , medicine at Monash ’ s Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine and Health Sciences is one of the most highly regarded programs in the country . With research-led teaching , modern facilities and challenging practical training , we ’ re committed to producing highly accomplished graduates .
Your clinical education
All medical students will be based at the Clinical School Johor Bahru ( CSJB ) from your third to fifth year . The school is situated at the southernmost point of the Malaysian Peninsula , just across the causeway from Singapore . It ’ s also right next to Sultanah Aminah Hospital , a tertiary and referral hospital where your clinical studies will be centred .
During your time at CSJB , you ’ ll learn practical clinical skills using the finest equipment and simulation facilities . These include :
• a pathology museum , pathology resource centre , organ demo room and pathology lab
• simulation rooms with simulator models designed to reflect an actual hospital emergency room
• a clinical skills lab with a wide range of equipment for practical classes
• a learning skills room for baby delivery practice sessions and other scenarios using simulator models
• a clinical research lab for drug trials research and patient examinations
• a medical research lab
• problem-based learning rooms .
A smarter way to learn
The Medical Anatomy and Pathology E-Learning ( MAPEL ) Laboratory is an innovative teaching and learning facility designed by Monash to support collaborative learning in a technologically-enhanced environment . It hosts anatomy and pathology learning materials , and an extensive collection of specimens and models supported by interactive multimedia .
Your lecturers will use computerised teaching tools , models and human simulators . This includes multi-touch smart tables , automated and real-time assessment methods , and digital 3D visualisation images of human cadaveric anatomy and pathological specimens .
But not everything is virtual – you ’ ll find plastinated specimens of resin-infused real human parts combined with real-life models , some of which have simulated breath or heart sounds , while injections can be administered or suturing performed in others .
Through these tools and simulated patients role-played by trained actors , you ’ ll be able to practise your clinical skills in a controlled environment , even from your first year .
