    President’s Message

    Welcome to National University of Medical Sciences (NUMSS). Our Faculty is quite simply one of the best practical faculties in the world. It has a strong tradition of applied training and its graduates are destined to be amongst the most successful professionals.

    The curriculum of NUMSS degree programs are innovative and dynamic, reflecting the minds of our outstanding professors and their vision for training tomorrow’s leaders in health care. First and foremost, we want our graduates to be professionals who possess sound judgment. We believe this is the best way to ensure that their patients, and the population at large, receive the most effective health care possible - that means care that is supported by scientific evidence.

    To attain this goal, we have created a curriculum that employs cutting-edge approaches to clinical care, as well as innovative teaching and learning techniques.

    Under the tutelage of highly trained and productive instructors, the student acquires a solid foundation in the biomedical sciences. This knowledge forms the basis for understanding the wide variety of disorders that our graduates must diagnose and treat. Skilful and experienced clinical teachers guide the students in acquiring technical skills and developing clinical judgement. Instructors with qualifications in the basic and clinical sciences assist the students in applying basic science knowledge to clinical problems. This integrated system of instruction results in broadly trained clinicians with a strong biomedical background.

    National University of Medical Sciences is committed to excellence in education, patient care, research and community service. With the incoming class we rededicate ourselves to the achievement of these goals.

    I encourage you to choose National University of Medical Sciences to study. I welcome you.
