In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the most honorable among all Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon all his family and companions.
Proceeding from the keenness of the UQU College of Medicine to serve future doctors and medical staff, and owing to the great interest shown by the officials of the Saudi health and education sectors in the medical profession, the service of the College Unit for Hospital Affairs has been established. This service mainly aims at raising the level of coordination and collaboration between the UQU College of Medicine and the hospitals and health centers accredited by the Ministry of Health. This is in order to provide a suitable educational and training environment for its students during the academic years as well as the internship stage.
In addition, the Unit for Hospital Affairs assists in directing the academic staff members to public health institutions, thus allowing them to serve the community, exchange experience with the institutions, and jointly implement medical cooperation. All this conduces to the advancement of medical services, and the fulfillment of the strategic objectives adopted by the College of Medicine and Umm Al-Qura University in contributing to community service and the development of medical education.
In conclusion, I ask Allah Almighty to grant success and guidance to all our future doctors and medical staff; for surely, He is All-Hearing and Responsive.
