Cyberjaya, 5th August 2022 University of Cyberjaya is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between its Faculty of Traditional and Complementary Medicine and Homeomed Sdn. Bhd, a homeopathy clinic chain with clinics located at various locations in Malaysia.

The MoU signing ceremony was graced by Vice Chancellor, Emeritus Professor Dato’ Dr. Mohamad Abd Razak, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Shaharuddin Mohd, Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Kalaiarasu Malayandi, Dean of the Faculty of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, Assistant Professor Ibrahim Usman Mhaisker, and Group Chief Executive Officer of Homeomed Sdn. Bhd., En. Hafizuddin bin Ismail.

Homeomed Sdn. Bhd. is currently the biggest recruiter of the university’s Homeopathy graduates; with this MoU the university hopes more graduates have the opportunity to be employed by Homeomed Sdn. Bhd.

Homeopathy is a system of traditional and complementary medicine proposed in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, based on his doctrine of “like cures like”. It takes a holistic approach to managing health and curing illness with the aid of natural substances. Homeopathy is now considered top 3 among complementary and alternative medicine.

University of Cyberjaya is the first private institution in Malaysia to offer the Bachelor of Homeopathic Medical Science (Hons) programme in Malaysia.

“As the pioneer for the homeopathic medical system within the Malaysian education scene, we are committed to produce competent and safe homeopathy practitioners who contribute towards achieving a holistic approach to enhance the health and quality of life in support of the Traditional and Complementary Medicine (T& CM) in Malaysia and beyond,” said Assistant Professor Ibrahim Usman Mhaisker, Dean of the Faculty of Traditional and Complementary Medicine.

Designed with an integrated approach towards education and health, this programme is in line with the Ministry of Health’s efforts to gradually integrate Traditional and Complementary Medicine into the government and private healthcare sectors.

The Traditional and Complementary Medicine division under the Ministry of Health has gazetted new regulations as of 2021 which states that traditional and complementary medicine practitioners are required to have recognised training and education background to ensure the safety and health of the public on top of standardising the process.

University of Cyberjaya strives to work closely with market players in order to create the best job opportunities for its graduates.
