Clinical Science

On 2006, UTM proposed to have five departments in FKBSK. Two of departments were medical diagnostic radiation and clinical science. However, on 2007, MOHE approved four departments, where the two departments were merged into one department which was Clinical Science and Engineering . The other three departments were Biomedical Instrumentation and Signal Processing, Biomechanics and Biomaterials, and Therapy and Rehabilitation.

Clinical science is a field of study involving medical principles using controlled procedures to evaluate results. Clinical engineering on the other hand, supports and advances patient care through engineering and managerial theories. The integration of the two provides an impetus for the state-of-the-art medical and health-care technologies.

The objective of this department is to produce scientist and engineer that capable to work in a health-care field as radiographer, health-care manage, radiation safety officer, medical therapist or medical engineer. The vision of department is focus onto teaching, research, service for medical diagnostic and radiation, wellness science and management as well as health-care technology management.

This department have multidisplinary  academic staff consist of:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Medical Informatics
  • Medicine
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Biochemistry
  • Medical Physics
  • Therapist
  • Nursing
  • Healthcare Technology
  • Management
  • Pharmacist
  • Radiologist
  • Oncologist
