Our Mission

is to provide a distinguished medical education, innovative research and community services, within a framework of ethics and values of profession.

Goals

The competent, effective, and compassionate care of patients and the advancement of knowledge about the disease and its prevention and treatment require that, medical students in training be introduced to a lifelong educational process in the practice of medicine. Medicine Program provides a critical phase of this education. The goals of the Medicine Program include educating students who should achieve the highest ethical and performance standards required to provide exemplary patient care, and who will assume leadership roles in the areas of clinical medicine, research, and teaching.

Program Description

Qualifications offered by the Program in Medicine is a Bachelor degree of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). The length of the program is 7 years (which includes a preparatory year). All students are eligible to practice medicine in the country after passing the Saudi Licensing Examination (SLE).

After being eligible from admission to the Medicine program, it is comprised of five years for under graduate teaching and one internship year for the clinical training. Students cannot graduate until he/she passed successfully the fifth year and thereafter the internship year evaluation.

The Medicine Program follows traditional teaching. Throughout the first two years, students study the basic sciences such as Anatomy, Histology, Physiology and Biochemistry. The third year is considered as the preclinical year where the students study more relevant subjects to the clinical career such as Pathology, Pharmacology and Microbiology with some other specialties. The fourth and fifth years are the clinical years where the students study Surgery, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology. The clinical training for these subjects is conducted through the hospitals of the ministry of Health in Jeddah namely King Fahd Hospital, King Abdul Aziz Hospital, Al Azizzia Hospital and Al Mosadiah Hospital. The students throughout the internship year will have their clinical training at these hospitals as well.

Theoretical teaching is mainly through lectures; with interactive participation of students throughout the lectures by frequently providing case studies and case scenarios. The main teaching methods in the practical and clinical sessions relies on problem solving by providing incidental cases and encouraging brain storming and critical thinking.
