Testimonial


Studying in the FPg, USIM gives me a new experience which I may not get in other universities or any other places. What I actually mean is that, here we have a very friendly environment which includes the relationship between lecturers, staff and students or between us and the patients. This kind of experience could help us develop our personal soft skills to communicate with patients, colleagues and supervisor in the future.”
