Academic Study :

The College is committed to the declared and accredited Code of assessment.
The Armed Forces College of Medicine's program is designed based on the harmonization and coordination of various curricula.
The program features an accredited points system, which enables the college’s academic program to be compatible with National Academic Reference Standards. Such standards were approved by the medical sector and National Authority to ensure the quality of education, accreditation and international standards of medical education. These meet the military training and preparation required for a military doctor.
The program includes problem-based learning curricula focusing on clinical case studies. This enables the cadets to see the complete picture by experiencing early patient encounters and thus enabling them to link their learning to real life situations. Therefore encouraging cadets to develop their mental skills, self-learning abilities, problem-solving skills and information implementation. This will help them to deal with the problems which arise from the specialist military environment and the most common issues which occur in this community.
The program develops cadets’ clinical skills as they are permitted access to military hospitals in the early stages of their study, in addition, they develop their clinical and military skills in various laboratories and workshops.
Practical training abroad for distinguished cadets is available during summer vacations.
Cadets study military medicine curricula (hyperbaric medicine, aviation and aerospace medicine, field medicine and surgery) and military curricula to graduate as a medical officer in the armed forces.
Some military medical curricula consist of a basic part and complementary non-basic part taught during the summer term. This part is without accreditation points, knowing that military medical curricula are passed without degrees. Nevertheless, the BSc degree is not granted unless military medical curricula are passed.
The student workload is divided as follows:
On-campus academic hours: 6 hours/day X 5= 30 + 3 = 33 hours/week.
Free study and academic knowledge hours: 4 hours/day X 5 = 120 hours/week.
Total exerted student workload ≈ 53 hour week X 34 weeks ≈ 1800 hour year.
English language is taught 900 hours throughout the program = 30 accredited points = 5 for each academic level.
IT is taught only in level 1 for 90 hours = 3 accredited points in the first year only.
Hyperbaric medicine is taught in the first and second levels.
Aviation and aerospace medicine is taught in the third and fourth levels.
Field medicine and surgery is taught in the fifth and sixth levels.
Military medical curricula are taught integrated with in the medical curricula.
Each section head is responsible for developing written exams based on questions submitted by the staff who taught the relevant subjects.
The exam should include the majority of the subjects covered with various types of questions to assess curriculum objectives used.
One or more faculty members should be included in developing each exam, provided that they are held liable for exam security.
Professors of other local and international colleges may be invited to clinical and oral exams when deemed necessary.
Exams :
The final exam is held at the end of each level and the re-test is administered before entering the subsequent level.
The basic results of exams and quizzes of any subject are assessed as follows:
Excellent: 85% or higher.
Very Good: 75% - 85%.
Good: 65% - 75%
Fair: 60% - 65%.
Fail: 60% or less.
The result of a re-test should not be higher than fair in the curriculum failed or missed without excuse. Cadets with excused absence get the result of the exam achieved in the re-test.
Failed exams are re-tested in September with the chance for review between 17/7 - 21/8.
The resultant percentage is equalized within the GPA system.
Cadets may participate in recreational activities similar to those practiced by correspondent cadets in all military academies and colleges including sports, cultural, recreational and military activities.
