 All students need to visit their foster families at least three times per year, each student has to visit to the villages of their foster parents at least 15 times during their 5 year medical doctor degree programme. Those visits were planned and organized by the Faculty Medicine & Health Science using RMEC as the focal point of all such visits. Frequently the foster family members utilize RMEC as their meeting points with their foster sons and daughters to bring them back to their villages. Thus it was found that RMEC played a crucial role for the induction, implementation and sustainability of the University Family Partnership Programme of UMS in Sikuati area of Kudat. The following table shows the total number of students that covered by the PUPUK Programme run by Faculty Medicine & Health Science.
