Message from the Vice-Chancellor of IMU Education
Welcome to the International Medical University (IMU), where the future of healthcare is You!
Since its founding in 1992, IMU has emerged to be Malaysia’s first and most established private medical and health sciences university with over 5000 IMU Alumni who are currently working as doctors and specialists and with another 3000 serving as pharmacists, in Malaysia and around the world.
Being a specialist university with 100% focus on medicine, health sciences and complementary medicine programmes, the University encourages Innovation, Imagination and Insight among its students and staff to develop a competency framework that ensures IMU graduates are work-ready, knowledgeable, competent and caring healthcare professionals who are critical thinkers, reflective and yet proactive.
As “living the values” is an integral part of IMU, the University also place emphasis on active involvement in the community to inculcate a caring attitude among students and staff. This is reflected in the robust camaraderie among students, staff and the community. It also enables students to translate knowledge gained in classrooms into health education to the public, enhance communication skills and strengthen their professional and technical skills in real world environments.
Medicine, dentistry and health sciences programmes have always been interesting paths to explore. With the dynamic change in healthcare services and the need of the communities, this has opened up many fascinating courses leading to attractive career paths. We would like to take this opportunity to advise students to learn more about a particular profession before they pursue any of these courses in order to ensure a better future for themselves.
We welcome you to explore the vibrant and diverse opportunities at IMU, discover our teaching and research strengths and our diverse networks of partners and collaborators.
Be the Future of Better Healthcare.
