As a result, the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences (FMHS) was inaugurated in September of 2015. The faculty is the first medical college in the country that adopted the integration of Problem-based learning (PBL) into its programs in order to offer students hands-on, clinical scenarios that bridge the gap between theory and practice.
The curriculum is oriented towards training students to undertake the responsibilities of a first contact physician who is knowledgeable in preventive, curative and rehabilitative aspects of medicine. The program ensures that our graduates have an excellent grasp of biological, psychological, social mechanisms and processes, as well as their impact on health and disease based on principles of learning drawn from cognitive and clinical psychology.
The role of the FMHS is to contribute to the health and wellness of the Somali society by training ethical and highly knowledgeable doctors.
