ABOUT THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE DEGREE

As long as new strains of diseases emerge, causing a detrimental effect on the health of our communities, biomedical science will play an important role in healthcare delivery.

Correct diagnosis of disease is imperative. Patients’ lives rely greatly on the results of clinical laboratory investigations conducted by capable biomedical scientists.

Similarly, biomedical scientists are essential in the field of biomedical research, a sector at the forefront of the Malaysian government’s push into developed nation status. It is also a field of endeavor that first world nations put a premium on.

As such, biomedical science is a profession that will continue to expand especially in Malaysia where there has been rapid growth in the healthcare system.

At IMU, the biomedical science degree program is mapped to the international standards set by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), UK.

The competencies required for a successful career are mapped out and students are able to track their progress as they advance.
