Royal College of Medicine Perak (RCMP) became part of University Kuala Lumpur in 2006 as its medical wing with the objective of providing affordable medical education, as well as facilities for continuing professional development for medical practitioners.
UniKL RCMP is strategically located in the heart of Ipoh, the capital of Perak and the third largest city in Malaysia. Situated on a six acre site, with its distinctive Moorish architecture, UniKL RCMP is within the vibrant and well planned township of Greentown where shopping malls, restaurants, food courts, clinics, banks and tourists attractions are all within easy reach.
The college is equipped with lecture theatres, a multipurpose hall, clinical skills laboratory, a pathology museum, library, computer laboratories, science laboratories, prayer rooms, mini kiosk and a dedicated anatomy building. The quiet environment, in spite of being in the heart of the city, offers a conducive atmosphere for academic pursuits.
By 2009, the college had an enrolment of more than 2000 local and foreign students attending various courses in allied health sciences as well as medical education. The students are enrolled in Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), Diploma in Nursing, Diploma in Pharmacy and Diploma in Medical Imaging (Radiography). The college started the Bachelor in Nursing programme for practising nurses in January 2010. The presence of international students reflects the trust gained by UniKL RCMP. RCMP will continue to offer quality allied health science programmes to fulfill the market needs.
