Faculty of Medicine & Human Sciences


Overview about Faculty: Establishment and Development:

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences was established in the 1990s under conditions of great challenges and changes in the nature of higher education, especially in Third World countries, which face great obstacles on their way to join the steady march of human progress in order to meet the needs of our aspiring community to promotion and development, despite the limited capabilities and the constant increase of population. This had a great impact on all aspects of life, especially the educational and health aspects. Within such circumstances, the Faculty emerged slowly and steadily, hoping to provide the Yemeni people and the surrounding region with outputs that contribute effectively to addressing health problems and standing as an embodiment of the vision of our country’s political leadership. To that end, the first major step towards the establishment of the Faculty was based on conducting an informed study of our country’s needs, peculiarities, and potentials, resulting in the findings stated in the following pages, on top of which is the announcement of the Faculties vision and philosophy in addition to the specification of its programs and outcomes. Thanks to God, we finally were able to move forward and we will keep on following the same steps in our steady march.
The Faculty set out with firm belief in the need to train and qualify an integrated health team, and soon developed into an institution with five divisions: Human Medicine, Nursing, Laboratory, Pharmacology and Dentistry. We devoted our efforts to commencing and developing these programs with a belief that our country is in desperate need of qualified cadres in these fields. As it was the most appropriate time to maximize our potentials, Pharmacology and Dentistry departments were developed into independent faculties, having fulfilled the requirements to meet new developments in their fields. 
The Faculty admitted its first intake of students in the Department of Human Medicine in the academic year 1983-1984. Training and teaching of this first batch used to take place in the simple buildings at the University Old Campus, making use of the laboratories of the Faculty of Science.  Current premises of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, designed by the concerned Yemeni authorities, were built with the assistance of Kuwait who signed the agreement of the establishment of the current Faculty premises on February 5th, 1985. In 1989-1990, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences moved into the new premises.  As a result, Human Medicine and Laboratory classes were transferred from the Faculty of Science into the Faculty’s new building. Since then, 11 batches had graduated from the Medical Laboratory Department. The 12th class was the first batch to graduate from Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences in its new premises.
