More Sabah-trained docs soon
“Malaysia will not need to engage any more foreign medical officers (doctors) as there will be sufficient Malaysian doctors, except for specialists,” said former UMSH Director Dr Helen Lasimbang.
Kota Kinabalu: The scheduled completion of Hospital Universiti Malaysia Sabah (HUMS) at the end of this year will enable the UMS Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences to increase medical students to be trained as doctors.

The current Director is Prof. Dr Malehah Mohd Noh and the hospital is touted as a “Smart Teaching Hospital” to improve the standard of medical education and training as well as to improve accessibility to top-quality healthcare services for surrounding local communities.

This would benefit not only UMS students but also the people of Sabah. With the establishment, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences would also finally accomplish its ambition to carry out teaching and training activities in its own teaching hospital.

“Malaysia will not need to engage any more foreign medical officers (doctors) as there will be sufficient Malaysian doctors, except for specialists,” said former UMSH Director Dr Helen Lasimbang.
