In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. May peace and blessings be upon the most honorable among prophets and messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions.

Welcome to the College of Health Sciences in Al-Leith, one of the newest colleges of Umm Al-Qura University. High Order No. 5997/MB was issued on 10 Shaaban 1427 A.H. to establish the College of Health Sciences in Al-Leith. The college is a gateway to science and knowledge in the health sciences, a pioneering institution of scientific research, and a center for modern health and medical education based on educational outcomes that create an academic environment that stimulates students and faculty members in creativity and cognitive excellence, and has an active role in community sponsorship.

Since its inception, education in Saudi Arabia has been one of its top priorities. The education sector in general, and university education in particular, is witnessing its golden age. During the reign of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, the number of universities and colleges has doubled, distributed throughout different regions and governorates of the Kingdom.

Umm Al-Qura University has invested this support. It has increased its number of colleges to include all the governorates of Makkah Province and expanded its specialties in line with the actual needs of the Kingdom. Health colleges have the largest share of qualified citizens, including the College of Health Sciences in the province of Al-Leith.

The college has drawn up its plans to align with the university's plan to achieve the objectives of the Kingdom's development plans and the National Transformation Program (2030). In light of this, it has adopted structures and plans that make the student the focus of all its plans and procedures, aiming to graduate students who are able to work in their fields of specialization with high efficiency. To achieve this, the educational and administrative infrastructure has been laid out. Cooperation has been made with medical and service centers inside and outside the Makkah region. Regional and international partnerships and cooperation agreements are currently being developed to achieve these objectives. It also assigns scientific research and community service a great part of its interest. The college has directed scientific research attention to deal with the health issues of the region in particular, and the Kingdom in general.

This website has been developed to provide further communication with all segments of society and with scientific centers. We also hope that this will stimulate community participation in the development of this college.

In conclusion, the college staff welcomes you, and thanks you for visiting the website. We look forward to ongoing communication to achieve what everyone is looking for.

Peace and blessings be upon you.


Dean of the College of Health Sciences, Al-Leith
