School of Medicine
A message from the Dean
The medical programme at IMU has an international reputation for excellence and innovation. In collaboration with our Partner Schools across the world, students have the opportunity to train as truly global health practitioners. Medicine is a challenging career path that requires dedication and hard work but offers the reward of knowing that you are using what you learn to help people and communities in their time of most need.
