About this course

The Bachelor of Medicine Program at Batterjee Medical College is designed to prepare graduates with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to face the challenges and dynamics of healthcare services.

The Dean of BMC is Dr. Osama Kensara. He also deals with academic affairs and looks after all academic activities. The management and the academic office have rendered outstanding services in developing and improving the faculty's standards and the college. The Medicine Program is divided into basic sciences (pre-clinical) and the clinical science units, of which both are taught within the premises of BMC. The clinical training is conducted through the Ministry of Health Hospitals in Jeddah as King Fahd Hospital, King Abdul Aziz Hospital, Al Azizzia Hospital, and Al Messadia Hospital. The students throughout the internship year will have their clinical training at these hospitals as well. There is also a skills lab for undergraduate students for the M1, M2, and M3. Clinical skills training in these beginning years leads to effective learning and develops confidence among the students. It also helps in the acquisition of knowledge, construction of knowledge, and application of knowledge. The higher management is hiring competent faculty from all over the world and is trying its best to retain faculty by providing them benefits and other facilities.
