Course Description

So you are thinking of taking up Medicine, but you are not sure? You heard from friends that studying Medicine is tough, it is a long course, and you have to make many sacrifices: and so you are undecided. Well, Medicine is tough. To take up Medicine, you not only need good grades, you also need to be convinced yourself that it is your career choice. That choice is yours, not your parents’ or anyone else’s, as you need total commitment, tenacity and determination on your part to carry on till you become a doctor and beyond.

What we do in IMU is to help you achieve your dream. We’ll make you a good, technically competent and more importantly a caring doctor. The 8 IMU outcomes make it explicit that we’ll help you do just that. We emphasise professionalism and ethics, and we strive to maintain the high ideals of Medicine as a noble profession. The science of curing a disease or lessening physical pain is not always the most important aspect of the doctor-patient relationship. Patients come to visit doctors for many reasons, and sometimes it is for emotional support and kindness, for empathy, for openness with someone they can trust and respect. In time to come, when you become a doctor, you will always be a doctor: because of the special and unique doctor-patient relationship through most harrowing and fragile moments, and through life and death. Medical students and young doctors always remember the first baby they deliver: the joy they share with patient and family; the first death they have to certify: the heavy heart to break the news and to comfort relatives who have lost their loved one. Whether you are a small time country doctor or a big time consultant in the premier hospital, you are sure to make a difference in the lives of those you touch!

Yes, Medicine is a life changing career. It is for those who are fully committed to take up the challenge. I can assure you that you’ll not regret that decision!
