At IMU we are acutely aware that rapid advancements in technology are impacting healthcare practices. We keep abreast with these changes to understand what is required of healthcare professionals in the future. With insight, we evolve and innovate our programmes to produce graduates who are savvy and competitive in this modern age. Every programme incorporates foundational competencies in data science including core topics such as the value of data.
In 2020, we were once again awarded the SETARA 2019 with a 6-star rating (Highly Competitive) under the Mature University category. We were also rated a 5-star university by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings. In 2017, IMU was the first homegrown private university awarded a 6-star rating in the much-coveted Rating for Higher Education Institutions in Malaysia (SETARA). Out of 71 institutions in Malaysia, only IMU and seven others made the cut. In the same year, IMU became the only private Malaysian medical university to receive the self-accreditation status from the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). This status entitles a higher education provider – with a solid and reliable internal quality assurance system – to self-accredit certain programmes.
IMU specialises in the fields of Medicine and the Health Sciences; and all our resources are dedicated to excellence in these areas. It is the first university in Malaysia to offer studies in Complementary Medicine; and our Chiropractic Programme is the first of its kind in the region. In our listing for Centres & Schools, you will find a variety of healthcare courses offered via our pre-university, undergraduate, postgraduate and continuous learning programmes.
IMU pioneered the concept of twinning and credit transfer programmes with established universities around the world. Our undergraduates are able to transfer their credits to any of the 33 established Partner Schools we collaborate with. Students can opt to begin their healthcare education in Malaysia, but complete and earn their degree at any one of our partner universities in Australia, Canada, China, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
