									                FACULTY OF MEDICINE AND HEALTH SCIENCES

ABOUT US

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences was formed in 1 August 1996 following the
restructuring of the Department of Biomedical Sciences from the Faculty of Veterinary
and Health Sciences, the Department of Nutrition and Community Health from the
Faculty of Human Ecology, and a new department, the Department of Medical Sciences.
During inception, the faculty was known as the Faculty of Biomedicine and Health
Sciences. In September 1997, the name was officially changed to the Faculty of
Medicine and Health Sciences.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has moved to a new complex adjacent to
Hospital Serdang which has been modeled as a teaching hospital for UPM students.
Currently, there are 1527 full time students (undergraduate: 1247, graduate: 280).


The faculty complex has many facilities which include four blocks of students’ hostel
which can accommodate 2000 students, students centre, food court, surau and two
houses meant for Heads of hostel administration. In addition, there are three blocks
which house administration section, lecture halls, seminar rooms, tutorial rooms and
laboratories.
