Currently, almost 1200 students are registered in 3 different programmes; Bachelor of Medical and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS); Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours) and Foundation in Sciences (Medical/Pharmacy). The university has also recently added Bachelor of Homeopathic Medical Sciences (Traditional Complimentary & Alternative Medicine) and Masters of Medical Science (By Research) and Doctor of Philosophy in Medical Science (By Research).
The university college accommodates both private and government sponsored students which include those under MARA, Petronas, Ministry of Defense (MINDEF), Malaysian Red Crescent Society, PTPTN and State Foundation scholarships and loans.
CUCMS has established strategic partnerships with government bodies including Ministry of Defense, Malaysia (MINDEF) and Ministry of Health, Malaysia (MOH). Through the niche partnership with MINDEF, sponsored students are sent to CUCMS to undergo full-time studies and also given the privilege to utilize medical facilities and resources including Military Hospital, Terendak, Melaka and Military Hospital, Lumut, Perak. IESB will optimize this advantage to incorporate the teaching of military, marine and aviation medicine. Hence, the focus is not only restricted to conventional and complementary medicine.In addition to this, CUCMS has also reached a formal understanding with Ministry of Health, Malaysia (MOH) to allow students to partake in clinical training activities at government hospitals and community polyclinics. Currently, students are sent to Sepang Community Polyclinic and Hospital Putrajaya.
Academic partnerships with other local and international higher learning institutions are also being explored to achieve the competitive] edge needed. In 2007, CUCMS signed separate MoUs with School of Pharmacy, Institut Teknologi Bandung and Universitas Hasanudin, Makasar, Indonesia to engage in student, administrative and knowledge exchange activities.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) exercise, CUCMS together with MERCY Malaysia has successfully created Young MERCY, an extension of MERCY Malaysia comprising of young medical students and aspiring medical professionals. Young MERCY was established on 22nd March 2007 with the primary objective of instilling the spirit of humanitarianism amongst young Malaysians while serving as a platform to enhance competency particularly amongst the student volunteers at CUCMS. CUCMS is proud and privileged to be the first university to propose and create such a significant collaborative effort with MERCY Malaysia. Through this effort, CUCMS seeks to make its contribution in medical relief and humanitarian aid. Amongst the more prominent involvements of Young MERCY were related to the Tsunami Disaster in December 2004 and the Great Johor Flood in 2006.
