Faculty of Medicine at University of Saba Region was newly established and is considered the first of its kind in the region. Therefore, we are keen that our steps towards building and developing the faculty should be strong, using several means, including the development of the operational plan to achieve quality standards by formulating a message and appropriate goals. The faculty aspires to provide distinguished medical services to the community through developing the components of the educational and administrative process and activating scientific research as well as emphasizing academic accreditation and quality assurance.
