Info apply for doctors working in MOH Malaysia
For us who aspire to become a physician, there are 2 way of getting the post-graduate diploma, via master program or MRCP
Master takes 4 years – with specific rotations in various specialties
MRCP – 2 papers and 1 clinical skill examinations;
Both are not as easy as one thought;
Master exam – first year of master is in general medical ward; end of first year- first examination – combination of MCQ and clinical examinations; it is pretty tough and many fail and required re-seat after 6 months;
MRCP – must know how to study and self-directed learning; also not easy; many MRCPians went to Singapore for specialist training.
Both are good way to get the post-grad basic diploma; Period of gazettement for master is 6 months and MRCP is 18 months.
By getting Master or MRCP, doctor are allowed to call themselves as PAKAR, in reality, they are just registrar;
Another round of training before one can call himself PAKAR;
