Institute of Health Sciences offers 7 master programmes by coursework or research.
Master of Medicine
Beginning January 2017, Master of Medicine is available to doctors undergoing Basic Specialty Training in Brunei Darussalam in 9 disciplines:
anaethesiology, critical care medicine, emergency medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, primary health care, psychiatry, public health and surgery.
The Master of Medicine (M.Med) at IHS introduces accredited, structured and certified training programmes for medical graduates, bringing in specialties such as anaethesiology, critical care medicine, emergency medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, primary health care, psychiatry, public health and surgery. Its vision is to develop high quality and comprehensive training to graduates to become consultants in an effective, efficient, responsive, affordable, equitable and accessible manner. The programme is carried out on a part-time basis and is delivered through a series of modules over the span of 3 years in block release mode (4 days each session, 5 sessions a year).
Master of Science in Primary Health Care
The programme leading to the Master of Science in Primary Health Care is conducted part-time and delivered in a modular format, with 15 modules, each of duration 4 days , being delivered over 3 years and distributed accordingly in each semester. Students of the Master of Science in Primary Health Care must also participate in the Vocational Training Scheme for Primary Health Care. This 3-year training runs concurrently with the course and fulfills the requirements to include the clinical aspects of the programme. Eligibility to participate in the Vocational Training Scheme and the postings required will be decided by the relevant postgraduate trainers and committee after taking into account the background and clinical experience of the prospective student.
The principal programme aims are to:
- Deliver a Master of Science programme as a series of modules over three years;
- Monitor the participants' progress through the programme by competence and performance assessments;
- Award a Master of Science in Primary Health Care to successful participants.
Currently, the last 2 cohorts are expected to complete this Programme at the end of 2017 and 2018.
The MSc Primary Health Care has now evolved into the Master of Medicine (Primary Health Care) and current applicants will need to apply for this.
