About Us

The International Quiz for Medical Undergraduates, IQMU, is a student-run initiative hosted by Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, a name synonymous with quality medical education, as proven by its consistent ranking amongst the top 10 medical colleges in the country over the years.

IQMU was conceived from the experience and inspiration gathered by a team of students who attended a similar international competition – CICoM, in Mexico, in the year 2016. Upon their return to Manipal, their stories ignited a spark in their fellow peers to create an event which strives to facilitate international academic and cultural exchange, and thus IQMU made its debut in 2017 with the continuous support of our sponsor, GEMx.


We aim to become a leading international student organization which helps
engage competitive medical students while creating long-lasting and fruitful relationships among future doctors from around the world.


We hope to serve as an entity dedicated to the development of innovative learning strategies and the creation of well-rounded physicians.
