About IMU

International Medical University (IMU) was established in 1992 and is a fully private university with a dedicated focus on medicine, health sciences and complementary medicine programmes. The school has an international reputation and provides high standards of medical education for students.

Situated in Bukit Jalil, the campus has various programmes such as Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Nutrition. The campus offers a dynamic and interactive environment featuring many facilities including collaborative study areas, a dental simulation lab, a nutrition and dietetics lab and a Medical Museum. Clinical schools offering some of these facilities have also been set up in Seremban, Kuala Pilah, Batu Pahat and Kluang.

A key feature of IMU is its strong global network of more than 29 partner institutions of higher learning around the world (e.g. Australia, New Zealand, US, UK). This provides students with both education and training opportunities overseas through credit transfer and twinning programmes.

IMU also integrates education with research and healthcare practice, exposing students to research projects with the established IMU Institute for Research, Development & Innovation (IRDI) throughout their degree. Partnerships with leading hospitals in Malaysia also allow staff and students to experience real-life clinical work.
