Department Head's Message

The Department of Surgery, Obstetrics & Radiology at Alfaisal University's mission is to educate, teach, and instruct. Education that permeates into the clinic, the operating room, and the lecture hall. It reaches also into our research endeavors. We open our minds to new ideas for innovations by learning and sharing those experiences with others. The challenge of the Department is to succeed in this mission and to provide exceptional value to our stakeholders; our students, residents, hospitals, granting agencies, and our patients.

The Department of is currently focusing on educational activities, especially at undergraduate level. We are also planning to have other educational activities such as seminars at postgraduate level and for continuous professional development. Members of the Department will be leading in undergraduate and postgraduate education programs at all levels.

In addition to the full-time faculty members in the Department, there are many adjunct faculty members, primarily working at KFSHRC and Security Forces Hospital, without whom the clerkships and internships would be impossible to organize and implement. I would personally like to thank all members of the Department in their efforts over the past few years. I would also like to acknowledge, on behalf of the Department, the tremendous efforts of our administrative staff. We are truly fortunate to have these dedicated, caring, energetic and intelligent people working on our team.
