We’re all making the transition back into anatomy and physiology. So, to ease the stress and color your daily life at Alfaisal as a future doctor, I am pleased to present to you with the first College of Medicine newsletter, “Med Times!”

The News Debut! ■ It is the honor of the College of Medicine to bring forth the production of our first newsletter which will be the channel illustrating the activities and news within our College through students, faculty, and the Alfaisal University as a whole.

■ Dr. Wael Al-Kattan Asst. Professor of Surgery Vice Dean, Academic & Student Affairs

Our newsletter is anticipated to be released on a monthly basis throughout the academic calendar, compiling a variety of issues around our College of Medicine. The newsletter will be highlighting the developments and advancements within our College such as, our achievements, medical education programs, upcoming events, recent faculty recruitment activity, accreditations, broadcast our strategic and academic plans, curriculum and syllabus status. This newsletter will focus on all

student affairs such as student assessment, student development programs, their feedback, the social and sport activities. Besides, it will also provide useful links and contact and grow into the link uniting our college with our affiliated partners; such as Partners Harvard Medical International and their recent communications and feedback, as well as King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Center to emphasize the accomplishments and immense efforts being put forth in the growth of our institution. This newsletter will also deliver our image and news to local and international universities keeping us under focus and maintaining a continuous bond. Finally I would like to show my gratitude to the entire team for helping in creating this newsletter. ■
