Letter of the Dean of the Faculty

 

The Faculty of Medicine of Mutah University was founded in the 2001. This was inaccordance with the vision of  His Majesty King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein, theFourth   King of  the  Hashemite  Kingdom   of   Jordan.  There   was   a   need   of   theKingdom to have more doctors and to have a medical school in the southern part ofthe country.
 
The establishment of this Medical School with its fellow medical schools in Amman,Irbid,   Zarqa   and   Salt   forms   a   net   for   undergraduate   medical   education   thatcompliment each other and geographically cover the country.
 
The   deanship   is   based   in   the   main   campus   of   the   University   and   with   theadministration   and   the  basic   sciences   departments.   The   administration   of   the   andlecture halls of the students and staff in the clinical sciences departments is based inthe grounds of the Karak Teaching Hospital. The number of students enrolled at thefaculty of medicine has increased tremendously over the last 16 years. The numberadmitted in the academic year 2001/2002 was 27 students while in the academic year2017/2018 the total   number   of our students is 1715 and the total number of ourgraduated students so far is 1132 doctors
 
The number of staff in both clinical and basic sciences has, also, increased from 12 inthe academic year 2001/2002 to 90 full-time staff members and 85 part-time staffmembers in the academic year 2017/2018. We tremendously rely on the staff andhospitals   of   the   Ministry   of   Health   and   Royal   Medical   Services  for   training   ourundergraduate   students.  A  sizable   number   of   our   faculty   staff   are   gaining   their
postgraduate training in both basic and clinical sciences in developed countries suchas United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia, Canada and Western Europe.
 
The graduates of the Faculty of Medicine at Mutah University joined various healthsectors in Jordan and abroad. Many of our students passed international exams such asUSMLE with very high scores. The feedback about their overall performance is verypositive.
 
In this short period of the life  of our medical school, we  have  conducted severalinternational scientific conferences, workshops, and scientific meetings which havebeen very successful. 
 
In addition to the undergraduate medical degree, bachelor of medicine and bachelor ofsurgery (MBBS), we are currently working to have other programs and postgraduate studies in various basic and clinical disciplines. And this year we started our first program of master degree in community health.
 
  I acknowledge the dedication of our faculty colleagues and administrative staff andwish our students a bright future.
