Opening Ceremony

Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia was officially opened on 1 November 2011 by HRH The Duke of York.

His Royal Highness, The Duke of York KG performed the opening of NUMed during a ceremony attended by Sir Liam Donaldson, Newcastle University’s Chancellor and former Chief Medical Officer for England, and the Vice-Chancellor of Newcastle University, Professor Chris Brink.

Sir Liam said: “The establishment of Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia will provide transnational access to a world-class UK medical education for a broad range of Malaysian and international students for whom this opportunity may have otherwise been denied by geographical or financial circumstances. In the longer term we hope very much to contribute, not only to meeting Malaysia’s human capital needs, but also improving medical services in the region and the care patients receive.”
