Phase 2 comprises the Clinical Clerkship years wherein the students are exposed to major clinical subjects such as Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Community Medicine, Family Medicine and others while they are required to be in clinical placements in hospitals and health centres.

Teaching and learning activities will comprise of various modalities including lectures, tutorials, seminars, Student-Centred Collaborative Learning (SCCL) sessions, practicals/clinical instructions and practice, Problem-Based Learning (PBL) sessions, report writing and presentations, clinical teaching in hospital wards and clinics, community health postings, community health projects, E-learning using an in-house Learning Management System (LMS) and also use of an E- mentoring system.

Method of Assessment

Students' progress will be monitored closely and regularly by various Continuous Assessment (CA) methods (class attendance, biweekly quizzes, assignments, presentations, PBL sessions) while Summative Assessments will be done periodically in the form of End of Semester (E-o-S) Exams/End of Posting (E-o-P) Exams and 2 Professional Exams, one in Year 2 and another in Year 5, ie. at the end of Phase 1 and Phase 2 respectively.

Career Pathway

On graduation, UCSA Medical graduates will hold the MBBS certificate which will allow them to be provisionally registred with the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) and begin their 'housemanship' and 'internship' (presently 2 years) in government hospitals.

Once fully registred and usually after 2-3 years of experience as a Medical Officer they can then either open their own practice (GP) or proceed to any higher qualification in Medicine ie. clicinal specialisations or an academic pathway leading to MSc and ultimately a PhD in a particular area of interest.
