School of Healthcare and Medical Sciences
The vision of the School of Healthcare and Medical Sciences is to become a leading provider of healthcare-related education with a dedicated pursuit of excellence and conduct of research with national and international recognition. The School is an exciting and vibrant place that engages teaching and learning pedagogies that promote integration of knowledge and skills. We provide live and simulated learning spaces, ensuring ample opportunities for self-directed and supervised training. Apart from ensuring students acquire the necessary skills and knowledge, we also emphasise on nurturing our students to have a compassionate and mindful care of the highest standard and quality.
Advancement in medical and healthcare are invariably linked with high standards of research and discoveries. Our academics have strong research and extensive publications in the areas of oncology (e.g. colorectal cancers, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, bladder cancers and hepatocellular carcinoma) and radiation sciences in relation to cell growth and cancer biology, as well as other diverse areas of biomedical interest such as immune and autoimmune diseases, chronic infective diseases (e.g. hepatitis B), chronic non-communicable diseases (e.g. hypertension and diabetes), and mental and cognitive functions of patients. These research projects are conducted in collaboration with local and international researchers of high repute. We also offer scholarships and fee waivers for postgraduate students to participate in these research projects.
The Diploma in Nursing is the School’s first launched programme. The majority of our graduates are serving at Sunway Medical Centre while the rest are at local and overseas hospitals. Sponsorship by Sunway Group’s healthcare division is also available for our nursing students. Additionally, we are collaborating with Harvard University in organising the Harvard’s South East Asia Healthcare Leadership (SEAL) programme.
