    • The University of Medicine, Magway located in Magway, is one of five universities of medicine in Myanmar. The university offers an M.B.,B.S. degree program, and master's degree programs in medical science.

      Up to 2011 December, the Ministry of Health-administered university was one of the most selective in the country, and accepts each year approximately 600 undergraduate students outside of Yangon Region and Mandalay Region based on their University Entrance Examination scores.

      As it was the only university of medicine in the country that accepts students from the rest of the country, the university was reputed to have the most economically, culturally and ethnically diverse student population as the Union University, among all Burmese universities of medicine. But, when educational reforms are started under the New Regime, the numbers of fresher candidates is reduced to 99 (2012 December) and those fresher students are from Magway Region, Shan State(East), Rakhine State, Bago Region (West). The fresher students from Lower Myanmar are relocated to University of Medicine 2, Yangon, and those from Kachin State, Chin State and Sagaing Region are to University of Medicine Mandalay.

      University of Medicine, Magway, is one of 4 schools in Myanmar recognized by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates.
