“I was a former student at MAHSA from 2006 to 2009. Studying the Diploma in Medical Imaging at MAHSA enabled me to understand the responsibilities needed to become a radiographer in the healthcare sector. The lecturers were very helpful and supportive during my three-year course and we were like family. The syllabus taught is on par with international standard and closely monitored by Ministry of Health Malaysia. Clinical attachments in government hospitals not only exposed to real-life situations when handling patients, but I was given the opportunity as well to practice hands-on what was being taught during lectures. I would like to thank my former lecturers at MAHSA for sharing their knowledge and helping everyone to succeed. Without their guidance, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you."
