From the cradle of Iqra' (read), and the heights of Al-Noor (light), I have the pleasure to welcome you to the College of Medicine, Umm Al-Qura University. This college started its scientific journey in 1416 A.H., with a galaxy of academic, technical and administrative cadres. It followed a certain strategy in all its stages that is in line with the aspirations of our wise leadership. It bases its strategy on developing curricula and learning methods, following the highest international standards and according to firm Islamic values. Thus, the college became proficient in all specializations and branches of medicine, and became unique in introducing and teaching a special course pertaining to Hajj, Umrah, crowd medicine, and all that is related to pilgrims and visitors' safety. This is to upgrade the educational outcomes to be part of the national objectives and the vision of 2030. The college aims to make the graduate of the College of Medicine at Umm Al-Qura University a successful and excellent physician, with a high level of scientific and practical efficiency to be able to serve his beloved kingdom in general, and Makkkah Al-Mukarramah and the pilgrims in particular.
All that has been achieved and what will be achieved in the future are only by the support of Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He), and then the noble patronage of our rulers (may Allah grant them success) as well as the support and continuous follow-up of His Excellency the President of the University, who is very keen to serve his country and community through Umm Al-Qura University.
Lastly, we supplicate to Allah, the Almighty, to grant us and them success to achieve all that brings goodness and glory to our dear country.
