Dr. Alkhateeb joined the University as a lecturer of physiology in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences since August 2016; coming from the University of British Columbia, where he was working as a teaching assistant of physiology and anatomy.  Before that, he worked as a human physiology lecturer at the Department of Physiology, College of Medicine at King Khalid University since 2002-2014. As a dedicated faculty, Dr. Alkhateeb has developed a heartfelt love for teaching. By using the most modern techniques and strategies in teaching the basic principles and concepts in human physiology, he strives to translate up to date information to students and work to ensure they understand not only concepts, but practical applications as well. Dr. Alkhateeb's goal is to motivate and inspire students to be life-long learners who seek knowledge by reading and practicing their skills.
