Surgery is a major department of the University of Malaya and was set up in 1965. From a small department of several academicians, the number of lecturers and professors have increased whilst maintaining the standard of excellence. The department has always played an important role in the University of Malaya Medical Center (formerly known as The University Hospital) as a major referral center for Malaysia. Patients are referred from general practitioners and specialists both within the hospital and also from outstation. They also attend via the Accident and Emergency department and through our Walk In clinics.
