Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences

Our philosophy of medical and allied medical education is rooted in science. Thus, we give a solid scientific and professional basis for healthcare practice on the platform of Primary Health Care (PHC). To achieve this, our medical and allied medical education aims first at improving health of the people in the community were our doctors and laboratory scientists are trained. Secondly, our products (students) should be able to practice evidence-based medical and allied medical sciences anywhere in the world. We shall implement this philosophy through integrated medical curriculum with a team approach for comprehensive health care.
