Within our school, there are two main academic divisions named basic and clinical sciences which are composed of faculty members from a variety of scientific backgrounds and disciplines that are dedicated and desired to share knowledge with the students they teach. In total, the school of medicine comprises 30 clinical and basic science departments consisting of more than 150 faculty members, 60 employees, 1200 students, more than 160 residents, and approximately 20 Ph.D. students.  Both divisions' programs are dedicated to provide the best in education, research and clinical activities through close collaboration among faculty members, departments, and other schools at the university. These close relationships between clinical and basic science departments has resulted in the development of various centers and departments and also fostered more opportunities for creative research and educational collaborations. 

Basic Sciences



► Basic Sciences Departments

The division of basic sciences provides students with the strong scientific foundation required in numerous disciplines including anatomy, physiology, clinical psychology, microbiology and immunology, parasitology and mycology, pathology and histology, clinical biochemistry, nutrition, pharmacology, community medicine, medical ethics, applied cell sciences, Islamic courses, addiction studies and English language which are all involved in training students. Each department’s curriculum is designed to meet the specific competencies required for the program. Our faculty members are dedicated to train students the basic science facts and concepts by more integrated ways, discipline-based lecture, and laboratory activities which are necessary for the practice of medicine and would enable students to recall, integrate and utilize their basic science knowledge in clinical situations.

Clinical Sciences

► Clinical Sciences Departments

The clinical science division is designed to provide a foundation of clinical knowledge that will expand clinical skills of students and practitioners who wish to gain more in-depth clinical knowledge and apply it to promote the quality of health care community.  The goal is to nurture students with abilities for leading and managing changes within the healthcare system, to serve as the academic home for clinical research where faculty members are dedicated to be excellent in scientific training, and to use clinical science as the foundation for doctoral training programs and applying that knowledge to improve human health care problems and needs. Here, specific areas of education focus include internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, general & special surgery, infectious diseases, cardiovascular medicine, neurology, E.N.T, ophthalmology, dermatology, anesthesiology, psychiatry, radiology, emergency medicine, physical medicine & rehabilitation and community medicine.
