College of Medicine Student Publication Success
We are proud to announce another achievement by one of our College of Medicine students. Mr Khalid Zaza recently shared in publishing in the Journal of Pharmacy & Pharmacology which is part of Wiley.
The existing curricula of many medical schools in Saudi Arabia follow traditional approaches, which deliver knowledge through fragmented and non-integrated avenues. Instead of being community-oriented, they are teacher-oriented and force students into passive roles. Such institutions produce students who opt to work only in urban areas, contributing further to the poor distribution of stable national health personnel and services throughout the Kingdom. Alfaisal University Medical College which is located in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia and the largest city in the Kingdom, will respond to all of these challenges. The college follows an innovative approach in the education of health professionals, including problem-based learning and community-based education.
