'No one shall be deprived of a sound education' are the words of Datuk Edmund Santhara, the award- winning Group CEO MUCH.' Today, MUCH is the top choice for students who are serious about pursuing a successful career that is lucrative in the healthcare industry. 'We are the only university college in the country with the most accredited study programmes from the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) and registered with the Public Service Commission (PSC),' said Santhara. An aging population and the expansion of healthcare industry had caused a shortage of healthcare personnel.
In Malaysia, private healthcare providers had also mushroomed since the mid-80s. Realising the great demand for highly qualified healthcare personnel, MUCH became the first private higher education institution to drive, introduce and popularise the various fields of health science in Malaysia. Some of the study programmes like Diploma in Healthcare, Diploma in Health Informatics and Diploma in Paramedic Science were first introduced in Malaysia by MUCH. MUCH aims to lead the world in creating healthcare professionals by providing holistic and innovative programmes that are responsive to market needs, keeping in mind the rapid advances occurring in the healthcare sector. It is the first private Nursing and Allied Health College in Malaysia to obtain approval and recognition from the Public Services Commission (PSC) and the Department of Public Services (JPA) for employment eligibility in the government sector. More than 200 hospitals and healthcare providers provide clinical training to MUCH students nationwide. The nation also witnessed the first of its kind overseas clinical practice with MASTERSKILL collaborating with one of India's finest healthcare providers, the Chettinad Hospital and Research Institute (CHRI) in Chennai.
