Welcoming Message 

The role of Student Affairs at the College of Medicine, King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences is varied and at the same time challenging.  Our close interactions with the students positions us to be critically engaged in all aspects of their lives. Collaborating with them as well as with faculty, staff, and many other sectors in the delivery of key services is of paramount importance.  We are organizationally sound, composed of caring leaders, well-regarded colleagues, and efficient administrative support personnel.  Simply stated, our mission is to assist the optimal growth and development of our students and to render services that will enhance their intellectual, psychosocial, cultural and physical well-being. We provide a comprehensive approach in dealing with different student’s activities ranging from outreach and community works, seminars, workshops, sports activities, student’s organizations, and other extra-curricular activities geared towards achieving their full potentials.                                                            

Our mission supports the College of Medicine’s commitment to education through Problem-Based Learning (PBL) that promotes life-long training and skills enhancement. It further instills confidence, inquisitiveness, and provides a global perspective among our students.  These values should guide our work for the future and will be the basis upon which we measure the success of our efforts.  

We will continue with our mandated tasks with dedication, optimism, and courage.  All these traits and many more are needed to realize our objectives as an institution for excellence in the field of medical education.
