About International Medical University (IMU)


IMU is Malaysia’s first and most established private medical and health sciences University with over 25 years of dedicated focus in healthcare education.

A specialist university with 100% focus on medicine & health sciences

The University is specialised in medicine, health sciences and complementary medicine programmes which means that all resources are devoted to excellence in this area of education. Comprising of five schools in the Faculty of Medicine and Health, the IMU has something to offer everyone interested in pre-university, undergraduate, postgraduate and continuous learning programmes in the field of healthcare.

Partner to the world’s prestigious universities

IMU pioneered the partner university model. It has established a strong global network of more than 29 partner institutions of higher learning. These collaborations cover most of the undergraduate programmes offered in IMU. This reflects its historic commitment to opening doors to education and training opportunities outside Malaysia via credit transfer and twinning programmes, opportunities that would not otherwise be available to Malaysians. IMU’s diverse partner universities include universities from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States of America, Ireland, China and United Kingdom.

Integrating education with research and healthcare practice

IMU is also pioneering the close integration of Research and Healthcare practice together with Education. Students get early exposure to research projects by interacting with the established IMU Institute for Research, Development & Innovation (IRDI) throughout their degree.

Over the years IMU has also established partnerships with leading hospitals in the country to allow its staff and students to get continuous and extensive real-life clinical experience. It also operates its own private clinics, IMU Healthcare, in areas such as Dentistry, Chiropractic and Chinese Medicine to ensure close integration of real practice with education.

Renowned and highly experienced faculty

IMU’s lecturers are highly-qualified in their fields of expertise with extensive experience in not only academia (teaching, research and publications) but also in clinical/professional practice. Through exclusive arrangements with our Partner Universities, senior faculty members from those universities participate in yearly quality assurance reviews which ensures that IMU’s benchmarks global standards.

Some also come as visiting lecturers to teach specialised subjects on a rotational basis at IMU.

A Medical University with Self-Accreditation Status

In 2017, IMU is the first and only private Malaysian medical university to receive the self-accreditation status from the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). The self-accreditation status entitles a higher education provider (HEP) to accredit its programmes except for programmes that require accreditation and recognition of the relevant professional body. MQA awards the status to public universities and private campus branches based on the respective institution’s solid and reliable internal quality assurance system.
