UniKL widened opportunities for UniKL Royal College of Medicine Perak (UniKL RCMP) graduates to practice their medical expertise at UniKL’s very own UniKL RCMP Medical Centre (URMC) in Ipoh, Perak. Y. Bhg. Datuk Ibrahim Ahmad, Director General, Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) officiated the Soft Launch of URMC on July 2, 2011 at Jalan Labrooy, Ipoh, Perak in the presence of UniKL Chairman, Y.B.

Set up with the mission ’to be a caring healthcare provider to the community with affordable and quality healthcare services that enable patients to reach and maintain their highest physical, mental and spiritual well-being’, URMC is managed by a private limited company known as “UniKL Medical Services Sdn.
