Teaching and Learning Strategies:
In view of the continuous development of medical education strategies and the requirements of the National Authority for Quality Assurance of Education and Accreditation, many modern teaching strategies have been adopted with the gradual shift to increase the practical doses and early exposure of the disease in the curriculum through the decisions of the College Council until completion of the new regulation of the new Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery program By adopting the following strategies:
The strategy of coordination and integration between different disciplines and medical sciences to achieve the linkage of basic sciences with their clinical and practical applications by coordinating the departments to teach parallel subjects as much as possible in the first stage, as well as coordination between the various clinical departments in the second phase (Temporal Coordination). All the required changes are presented to the Committee for the Design and Development of Educational Programs to be approved by the College Council.
Self-learning strategy with continuous follow-up through the gradation in the notification and assignment of the student pre-preparatory readings for subsequent educational activities with specific assignments for each educational activity. A number of lectures are also posted on the College's website and departments, with the students being asked to review these topics and submit them in the departmental conferences and in some discussion sessions. The learning process is followed by continuous objective evaluation.
The use of different educational sources of knowledge such as university books, scientific references and periodicals, e-learning and the international information network.
