College of Medicine, in existence since 1998 has managed to not only impart quality medical education, but has also created a network of healthcare services, a conducive research milieu and developed unique related avenues for professional development, policy and leadership to meet the healthcare needs of the nation and the region.

Apart from our flagship 6-year Doctor of Medicine (MD) Program and 4-year Graduate-entry Doctor of Medicine (GEMD) Program, College of Medicine offers the Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBMS) program (internationally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (IBMS), UK and approved by the Board of Certification of American Society Clinical Pathology International (ASCPi), USA), Higher Diploma in Pre-Clinical Sciences (HDPCS) program, Masters in Public Health (MPH) program in collaboration with The University of Arizona, USA, Diploma / Masters in Health Professions Education (DHPE / MHPE) Programs, and the Dual degree PhD Program in Precision Medicine in collaboration with University Paris Saclay, France. In addition, we offer the Medical Internship Program.

The competency-based curricula of our CAA accredited programs are benchmarked with nationally and internationally known competency frameworks, and delivered based on adult-learning principles and sound educational philosophies like social constructivism, community of practice, evidence-based medicine, inter-professional education, etc. with a strong focus on ethical practice, social accountability and community engagement. We have adopted international best practices in teaching/learning and assessment approaches. Students are trained to become self-learners and life-long learners to adapt to the rapidly changing advances in the chosen professional field.

Our unique strength is that we own our clinical training facilities like the NIHS and JCI accredited hospitals, ambulatory healthcare clinics, CAP-accredited diagnostic laboratories, a state-of-the-art Center for Advanced Simulation in Healthcare (CASH) and a world-class Thumbay Research Institute for Precision Medicine (TRIPM) forming part of the larger GMU Academic Health System, integrating academia and research with healthcare under one governance, providing a unique vehicle of quality in patient care, education and discovery. This has enabled us to embed our students across programs into their workplace environment very early, and at another level, employ our graduates in our own facilities. Our research focus has been on cancer, diabetes, infectious diseases, public health, and medical education.

Our healthcare facilities are approved by the National Institute of Health Specialties for offering internship and residency training programs. We work in close partnership with our health regulatory authorities and healthcare industry for clinical placements for our students and internship training for our graduates. We have established international collaborations with reputed universities across the globe for student and faculty exchange, elective placements, internship, research and for offering collaborative degree programs.

Our alumni remain our best ambassadors. Our 1600+ graduates from over 20 cohorts are well placed across the globe, including many practicing in the country and the region contributing to the knowledge and health economy of the nation and the region which aligns with the vision and mission of College of Medicine.
