With the main campus located in a small suburb in Kuala Lumpur, the IMU campus provides a dynamic and interactive environment that fosters educational and research opportunities. The University has invested substantially to provide a wide range of facilities for its students so that they will get the most out of their study experience. This will make student life at IMU as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
Some of these facilities are also available at our Clinical Campuses in Seremban, Batu Pahat and Kluang. You can view the facilities available at these Clinical Campuses via our virtual tours.
The Library has a seating capacity of 750 seats of various types with 11 discussion rooms. It contains more than 60,000 copies of printed books, 74,782 titles of e-books and more than 6,000 titles of online journals from 11 subscribed databases. E-resources are accessible at the library via its web portal at URL: http://i-lib.imu.edu.my using Active Directory Username and Password regardless of location. The library is divided to 2 zones: Collaborative study areas where light discussions are allowed and quiet study areas for serious individual study.
The Medical Museum (MMS) is situated in the library and is a learning facility for all IMU students with many types of exhibits which include anatomy models, charts, potted specimens, fixed learning modules (FLMs), microscopic slides, videotapes, CD ROMs, radiography imaging (x-rays) and others. Students learn with the help of specimens, models or FLMs about the practical components of subjects like anatomy, pathology, microbiology, parasitology and immunology.
Dental Skills Centre (DSC)
The DSC houses two main dental laboratories: Dental simulation laboratory (DSL) and dental techniques laboratory (DTL) in addition to plaster, casting, acrylic processing, ceramic, and polishing and CAD/CAM rooms. Students received training to carry out all the treatment procedures on the patient simulators until they are competent to enhance their skills and confidence prior to carrying out such treatments on patients in the clinic.
Nutrition and Dietetics Lab
The Nutrition and Dietetics laboratory consists of several practical centres focused on teaching the students to acquire nutrition and dietetics skills. These practical centres are Food Preparation Lab, Quantity Food Lab, Pastry Lab, Nutrition assessment & GI lab, Sensory lab, Food Analysis lab and Food Kiosk. There is also a small food kiosk for students to practice their entrepreneur skills in sales of healthy recipes developed by the students to the IMU community.
Research at IMU has gone on for more than a decade in the well-equipped research laboratories. Research strategies adopted continued to be based on National priorities as set out by the Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) as well as the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), and the expertise available at IMU. The research emphasis was therefore in the areas of Bioactive Molecules and Drug Delivery, Cancer Biology, Environmental and Population Health, Clinical Research, and Medical Education Research (reported elsewhere).
