Doctor of Medicine (MD)
The University of Mauritius wishes to develop in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Quality of Life and University of Geneva a medical school of high quality that will help to improve the health care system of the Republic of Mauritius, by enabling Mauritian authorities to have more control on the quality of medical training of health care manpower. The school of Medicine will be responsive to local needs as well as regional needs (humanitarian aspect) and will attract international students through the quality of its teaching and curricula.
The first programme to be developed under the proposed Public School of Medicine is a full-fledged medical undergraduate programme, in English medium, which will involve 3 partners: Faculty of Medicine of University of Geneva (UNIGE), the University of Mauritius (UOM) and the Mauritian Ministry of Health & Quality of Life (MOHQL).
The successful completion of a 6 year full-time medical undergraduate programme, in English medium, undertaken in two parts: 3 years full-time for the Bachelor of Medicine followed by 3 years full-time for the Master of Medicine programme will lead to the award of the Doctor of Medicine (Medicinae Doctor or MD) degree. The programme will include a research dissertation prepared as from the 4th year and submitted at the end of the 5th year. The 6th year will consist of 10 months of student internship in hospitals. A comprehensive final examination will be held at the end of the 6th year after validation of the student internship to examine whether the candidates master the knowledge, skills and attitudes as well as the social competencies and behaviors required for practicing the medical profession.
Curricular contents are derived from the similar undergraduate programme offered by UNIGE. Students need to successfully complete the Bachelor of Medicine part in order to register for Master of Medicine part of the undergraduate medical programme. Students who succeed in the final year examination held at the end of the 6th year will be awarded a MD (Doctor of Medicine) degree by UOM. Mention may be made to the effect that the medical undergraduate programme was established in collaboration with UNIGE. Students graduating with the MD degree will be eligible for pre-registration training as per the requirements of the Medical Council of Mauritius or of Regulatory bodies elsewhere, in order to be able to practice independently as registered medical practitioners. They can also thereafter engage in further post-graduate clinical studies or choose a career in biomedical research.
