About USIM

Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) or formerly known as Islamic University College of Malaysia (KUIM) is the 12th Public Higher Education Institution (IPTA) in Malaysia. KUIM was approved by the Cabinet on 11 June 1997 and made public on 13 March 1998. KUIM started its operations in January 2000 at 5th Floor, Faculty of Islamic Studies Building, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi. The first enrolment for KUIM began on 18 June 2000 in our temporary location at Institut Professional Baitulmal (IPB), Kuala Lumpur. In January 2002, KUIM moved to another temporary campus in Tower A and B, Persiaran MPAJ, Pandan Indah, Kuala Lumpur.  Currently, KUIM is operating in stages at a permanent campus in Bandar Baru Nilai starting 15 July 2005. KUIM was officially upgraded to USIM on 1 February 2007, in line with the government’s aim to upgrade the development of higher education to an international level.

Among the objectives of the establishment of USIM are to uphold and enhance Islamic studies, bring Islamic Studies into the national main education stream, emphasize the use of information technology in education and research systems. Focus is also put in mastering Arabic and English language as well as the national language.

At present, USIM have 8 faculties. The academic programmes are focused and developed with the idea that Islamic studies should be taken as a base for all academic programmes and it should cover and surpass all branches of knowledge that includes economy, law, syariah, language, dakwah, management, Quran and Sunnah, Fiqh, counseling, communication, medicine, science & information technology, dentistry and accounting. Through this unique approach, it is hoped that wider opportunities for Islamic stream students are open and these graduates will not be too confounded on the traditional scope of Islamic Studies per se.

Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

The Islamic Science University of Malaysia (USIM) is a government funded university that was established in the year 2000. The founding of USIM was inspired by the vision of the then Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, to uphold and integrate Islamic studies into tertiary education and science, thereby incorporating Islam into the national education mainstream.

Now USIM has 8 faculties including the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, based in the Pandan Indah campus, very near to the Kuala Lumpur city centre.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences began operations with an intake of 29 medical students in 2005. This first batch of 29 have now just graduated as medical doctors and all are serving as medical officers in hospitals within the Malaysian Ministry of Health. At present, there are 317 medical students pursuing their medical training at USIM’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The faculty was recently conferred full accreditation by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency and the Malaysian Medical Council.

The medical degree offered at USIM is unique where the future doctors are trained not only in the fields of medicine and surgery but also in higher Islamic studies. Compulsory courses include Quranic memorization, hadith and sunnah of the Prophet (s.a.w.), Arabic language, history of medicine in Islam, fiqh and many others. Thus, an all rounded education is provided with the aim of producing medical practitioners who are leaders for the Muslim ummah.
