INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL UNIVERSITY
Driving Healthcare Education Excellence
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.
The links with our Partner Schools are are maintained through the Academic Council (AC) which meets annually around March and through the IMEC which coincides with the AC, to optimize on the access to international expertise that IMU is in a unique position to benefit from.
