medical_imaging_icon Diploma in Medical Imaging


The Medical Imaging Diploma is a full time programme which prepares the students to become a registered radiographer as well as highly trained autonomous professionals who can perform all imaging procedures in radiography, using modern equipment with imaging sources from X-rays, magnetic resonance and ultrasound. We have the distinction of being the ONLY private university in Malaysia equipped with two x-ray machines that are equipped with advanced technology, computed radiography (CR) system whereby students can obtain the requisite radiography skills before their clinical posting. In addition, student gain clinical experience through attachment at public, private hospital and overseas training. Students are supervised and guided by clinical instructors from AMU as well as the radiographer from the clinical posting institutions.

According to WHO, by 2050, 20% of the world population will be above 60 years old. Against this backdrop and inevitably, the need and demand for pre hospital care and rehabilitation is expected to increase. Consequently health care manpower to encompass the needs of the growing population will be needed.

In light of this, AMU offers innovative educational program to meet the various demands and needs of society in the areas of management, clinical and health related scientific field.

AMU is one of the pioneer universities in producing health care professionals. Currently we are diversifying into the pre-hospital, rehabilitation, diagnostic imaging and therapeutic oncology care.

Degree and diploma holders in these fields have the advantage of fulfilling the gap that we will be encountering to maintain the ratio of a health care personnel to the total population.
