Dean's Speech

During the past two decades, medical education has witnessed a significant acceleration in the development of its content, the diversity of learning and teaching strategies, the extension of the roles of faculty members, joint education among all students of different health specialties, and students’ centric activities aligned with community needs and future trends in the field of health and healthcare. The future of medical practice is influenced by many factors, including the divergent trend between focusing on individualized and personalized care and population health management, between professional skills development and the growing role of technology, artificial intelligence and big data, as well as between the expansion of comprehensive coverage and the enhancement of the benefits package provided to beneficiaries.

With these great variables and diversity in teaching methods and strategies, the Faculty of Medicine at Almaarefa University believes that the student is the main focus in this context by enhancing and developing his cognitive abilities, practical and clinical skills, and personal skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork, self-learning, mastery and application of different technology in His working life and communication with patients and preparing him to work and learn in all different fields and environments internally and externally, enhanced by the spirit of compassion and care for individuals and society. He is well equipped to provide the necessary support to his colleagues in the health team with a skill that combines leadership and teamwork. The college also believes that the college leadership, faculty members, students, the various University administrations and colleges, and all our partners in the field of training and work are sharing a common goal, which is to raise the level of graduates and maximize their value for healthcare and community. Therefore, the college is working on developing its curricula and preparing training programs for faculty members and students to achieve its strategic vision to be a pioneering medical college in education, learning, innovation and community service with high efficiency and sustainability.
