Profile

MAHSA University Campus
Overview

MAHSA was established in earnest in the year 2005 in Pusat Bandar Damansara, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur with the belief that higher education in the field of healthcare is a vital cog in the development of the nation. MAHSA is the brainchild of Professor Datuk Dr. Hj. Mohamed Haniffa who is Pro-Chancellor and Executive Chairman.

Professor Datuk Dr. Hj. Mohamed Haniffa is a clinical practitioner of Medicine whose vision involved creating a centre of excellence in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing and Allied Health Sciences education in this region thereby developing qualified and compassionate healthcare professionals to serve the needs of our great nation. This is in line with the Prime Minister’s vision that Malaysia should become a centre for academic excellence.

In order to generate a pool of skilled healthcare professionals, it was agreed upon form the start that MAHSA would gather the brightest minds in the country and abroad to help nurture the minds of our students and hone their skills. Furthermore, in the field of healthcare, theoretical knowledge though important is nonetheless secondary to clinical exposure and thus it was decided that students of MAHSA must gain practical experience at the earliest stage during their tenure. Finally, state of the art facilities were created to complement the innovative teaching curriculum and a highly qualified and motivated teaching staff.

Within a short span of time, our students outgrew their original premises and thereby a second campus was set up in Jalan University, Kuala Lumpur. The Jalan University Campus or JUC is now designated as the main campus. From a modest start with the Pre – University Cambridge GCE A’ Levels and the three year Diploma in Nursing program in 2005, now MAHSA is proudly recognized as one of the premier institution that focuses in the delivery of education in the field of healthcare offering programmes ranging from Certificate programmes to Diploma, Degree, Masters and Doctorate programmes.

In 2009, MAHSA was upgraded from College to University College status. This upgrade in class in a mere four years is a testament to the exemplary dedication of the academic and administrative staff coupled by the delivery superior programmes.

With due diligence and ample support from students, staff and the public, MAHSA is proud to announce its latest achievement of receiving University status.

MAHSA University is an entity that is continually evolving; developing new programmes, creating pathways of further education and delving into research activities so as to offer prospective and current students a rich learning experience and a comprehensive education which will be valuable and rewarding.

MAHSA University has recently expanded their choice of programmes offered and now offers Business, Accounting, as well as Engineering courses.

Student Services

MAHSA University Student Support

 
Counseling
A student’s life is filled with trials and tribulations, the road to success can be a long and winding one. This can be made all the more difficult especially for students who leave the comforts of their homes to come study in a foreign city or in an unfamiliar country. There are definitely moments when a student is feeling low and this is exactly when he or she needs someone to talk to. 
Issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, grief or loss, lacking in confidence, relationship difficulties and family conflicts can be brought to the attention of our trained counselors. These sessions are confidential and held in private. The counselor’s role is to listen to the student’s problems; and then try to offer advice and help to the student on how to overcome his or her difficulties. Information shared between the student and the counselor will be guarded with the utmost respect and privacy.
 
Orientation
The Orientation program is held for a week and is designed to allow the new students to interact with each other and make friends with their fellow classmates. The event starts of with the ‘Ice – Breaking’ ceremony that allows the students to mingle. Furthermore they are encouraged to meet and get to know their respective lecturers and the relevant administrative staff. Students are also taken on a tour of both the campuses. The Orientation week ends on a high note with performances by the new batch for their fellow students, lecturers and senior administrative staff.
