International Medical University (IMU) is the pioneer private medical university in the country.
The International Medical University 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 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 26 such Schools in Australasia, North America, Ireland and the United Kingdom. We have a Partner Pharmacy School in Scotland and are establishing partnerships with some in Australia.

Since 1999 the University’s growth and development has been in developing clinical schools in Seremban and Batu Pahat, our own Honours degree courses in Pharmacy and Nursing, and in establishing research as a core activity, together with development of postgraduate research Masters and PhD programmes. We are already the preferred private school 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 have introduced Honours degree courses in Dentistry, Nutrition & Dietetics, Medical Biotechnology, Psychology, Biomedical Science and in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. In common with our MBBS, BPharm and BNursing, these new courses have been designed from first principles by our faculty. We believe our courses to be progressive and innovative, and we strive to use best practice in their delivery and assessment.
