The College of Medicine at King Saud University (KSU) upholds a strong commitment to medical education and the future of health care in the Kingdom. Currently there are two systems of training at the College of Medicine & University Hospitals:
1. Saudi Speciality Certificate Training in collaboration with the Saudi Council for Health Specialities (SCHS), the national body responsible for the supervision and accreditation of health specialty training programs.
The SCHS recognizes residency programs in major specialties and subspecialties at the University Hospitals (KKUH, KAUH) towards a Saudi Specialty Certificate (Saudi Board). The programs are structured according to the objectives and regulations of the SCHS, enabling the residents to acquire the knowledge, skills and expertise necessary for their certification. The training departments’ representation on the SCHS committees provides a closer collaboration with regards to the trainees’ progress and program requirements.
2. King Saud University Fellowships (alone or combined with the Saudi Speciality Certificate).
The KSU Fellowships are supervised by the departments concerned and the Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME).
Specialities and subspecialities currently available at the College of Medicine and the University Hospitals (KKUH and KAUH) are listed in Appendix II.
In order to adapt to the changing demands and challenges of the health care system in the Kingdom, the College of Medicine and University Hospitals will continually upgrade its education system.
3. Please note that the term resident in this KSU policies and procedures refers to those trainees in the residency programs as well as those in the fellowship programs.
