A Malaysian Chiropractor’s Journey to a Successful Career

29th May, 2020

Goh Yan Hun has always had a keen interest towards the subject of Biology in secondary school. He was always intrigued in learning the various ways on how the body functions. Thus, over time, he knew he was inclining towards a future career in healthcare or any biology related career. This prompted his decision to study Foundation in Science at IMU.

It was during his Foundation in Science (FiS) studies when he first heard about the University’s Chiropractic programme and that is when his Chiropractic journey first begun. Yan Hun shares about his journey to where he is now in an interview via email:

“When I first heard about the Chiropractic programme in IMU, I did some research on it, and found great interest in the idea of Chiropractic and the fact that it is not a profession that was too common at that time, so I decided to enroll into the programme.

For a start, FIS has really prepared me well for my undergraduate studies. The FIS programme incorporated a lot of basic sciences, mainly biology and chemistry which helped prepare me tremendously during my first few semesters in undergraduate studies.

Another advantage of being enrolled into the Foundation in Science programme in IMU is that I was very well adapted and used to the community and IMU culture when entering my undergraduate programme. I was comfortable with the way the system works and I have also made many friends from various activities and thus allows a smooth transitioning from the FiS into the undergraduate programme.

During my time in IMU, there were many events throughout which has been memorable and influential to who I am today. On the top of the list was meeting lifelong friends and people that made university life an unforgettable experience. I was very lucky to have met my group of friends who were very supportive, regardless of race and religion! I have also met various like-minded and dedicated friends throughout different semesters of the Chiropractic programme. We came together as a group to practice and improve our knowledge and technique skills several times every week on top of our academic classes and subjects.

The Foundation in Science programme and Chiropractic programme have also incorporated a lot of teamwork as part of the in-course assessment projects, which allows us to learn how to function as a team player in group projects. This is particularly important as when we start our careers, we are often involved in a company with a team. It is important to know how to contribute and take account for the responsibility that has been given.

The fact that we are in a university with several other healthcare profession allows us to learn more about other healthcare professions which then helps us understand a multi-faceted and integrated approach towards a patient’s health issue. By this, we would soon hope to build a healthcare industry that is well suited to various aspects of a patient’s health in the future.

Due to the fact that the community in IMU is relatively small, people tend to know each other, even people from various different courses such as Medicine, Dentistry, Chiropractic, Nutrition and Dietician and many others. This has allowed me to make friends with future healthcare professionals from other professions and opens up a variety of opportunities for an integrated healthcare approach to a patient’s health which I think plays an important part in our healthcare industry.”

IMU is the first and only University to offer the complete Chiropractic educational programme in Malaysia as well as in all of Southeast Asia. The 4-year Bachelor of Science (Hons) Chiropractic programme at IMU was awarded full accreditation by the prestigious Council on Chiropractic Education, Australasia (CCEA) and is accepted by renowned international universities in Australia and the United Kingdom for credit transfer into their chiropractic programmes.

Intake for this programme is in January and July of each year. If you have a desire to be a healthcare professional that is rapidly expanding throughout the world, apply now for an excellent start to an exciting and highly rewarding career.

If you have just completed your SPM and do not have pre-university qualification, consider enrolling in the one-year IMU Foundation in Science, the preferred foundation and direct route for entry into any of the University’s local degree programmes.
