Accreditation and Training of Surgeons and Doctors in Malaysia

The majority of private surgeons and dentists working in Malaysia train and qualify in the UK, Australia or the US.  The training in Malaysia is equivalent to the British system so surgeons must firstly qualify in medicine, then surgery, before going on to post graduate training to receive a qualification as a Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon.

Cosmetic surgeons need to be members of the Malaysian Association of Surgeons and the Malaysian Association of Plastic Surgeons.  Most private hospitals in the country have internationally recognised quality standards such as the MS ISO9002 or are accreditation by the Malaysian Medical Society for Quality of Health (MSQH).  All private medical centres must be approved and licensed by the Malaysian Ministry of Health.
