ABOUT THE MEDICINE DEGREE

The path towards becoming a doctor is long and challenging but one that sees no shortage of takers. It is a selfless calling, dedicated to the service of others and yet, is one of the most personally fulfilling career options to embark on.

To take up medicine, you need good grades coupled with total commitment to stay on the course. Hence, it is important that the decision to be a doctor is yours, not your parents’ or anyone else’s.

The IMU Medical programme focuses on Medical Sciences for the first 2.5 years. Students then proceed to undertake Clinical Training either at IMU’s Clinical Campuses in the southern part of Malaysia or at a Partner Medical School (PMS) overseas.

IMU’s curriculum emphasizes clinical application of basic science from an early stage. IMU is the first to incorporate the USMLE Step 1 Preparatory Course into the IMU medical curriculum across Semesters 1 to 5. This is to allow IMU medical graduates to begin early preparation to sit for USMLE Step 1 examination that opens the door towards United States residency opportunities.

Overseas Clinical Electives

Students will have the opportunity of doing their clinical electives in selected hospitals in the USA in order to enhance their learning experience in different healthcare systems.
