The International Medical University (IMU) began in 1992 as the International Medical College, or IMC, Malaysia’s first private medical college. IMC became a University in 1999, but the University has remained true to key elements of the original IMC vision, which are to widen access to professional healthcare education, and to use innovative, integrated and student-centred means in providing that education.
This vision required strong links to be forged, from the outset, with reputable Partner Medical Schools committed to excellence and who share our educational philosophy. It was our progressive, systems based, integrated medical curriculum that first caught the imagination of our Partner Medical Schools, and today we collaborate with partner universities in Australasia, North America, Ireland and the United Kingdom. This successful collaboration then expands to the pharmacy and health sciences programmes at world-class universities in Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and China.
Since 1999, International Medical University’s focus has been in developing clinical schools in Seremban, Batu Pahat and Kuala Pilah, and develop our own Honours degree courses in Pharmacy and Nursing, and in establishing research as a core activity, together with development of postgraduate research-orientedMasters and PhD programmes. We are already the preferred and leading private education for medicine and pharmacy in Malaysia. Our growth has been supported by heavy investment in infrastructure development and expansion at Bukit Jalil and Seremban, and in the recruitment of staff of high calibre. In 2008, we introduced Honours degree courses in Dentistry, Nutrition & Dietetics, Medical Biotechnology, Psychology, Biomedical Science and in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Just like our MBBS, BPharm and BNursing, these courses have been designed from first principles by our faculty. Bachelor of Nursing Science (Hons) was introduced in 2009, a programme targeted solely for registered nurses to upgrade their qualification from diploma to degree level.
In 2010, International Medical University (IMU) introduced the Chiropractic programme, the first of its kind and only complete educational programme in Malaysia and in Southeast Asia. In February 2011, IMU launched the Chinese Medicine programme. The programme focuses on combining medical education and scientific research, offering the full array of l both Chinese amd Western medicine.
To date, International Medical University (IMU) offers undergraduate degree programmes in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Nursing, Nursing Science, Nutrition & Dietetics, Psychology, Biomedical Science, Medical Biotechnology, Chiropractic, Chinese Medicine as well as postgraduate degrees such as MSc in Medical Sciences or Community Health by research and PhD in Medical & Health Sciences by research. We believe our courses to be progressive and innovative, and we strive to use best practices in their delivery and assessment.
International Medical University (IMU) continue to seek to widen access to healthcare education, and to grow into a centre of healthcare educational excellence in the Asia-Pacific region.
