KSAU-HS is well known in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and the Middle East region as the first public university that is specialized in health sciences. Being affiliated with the MNGHA-KAMC has given our students with an exceptional learning environment and a unique opportunity for inter-professional education.

In addition to fostering both personal development and a sense of responsibility in our students, the curriculum enables the students to be involved with their faculty mentors in pharmacy research projects where they learn how to become future researchers. Students are also encouraged to be engaged in community service activities that serve our community and provide a culture of friendly support and commitment.
