Vice President for Health Science

Since its establishment, the center has been delegated with the responsibility of seeking to establish faculties and programs that embrace the various aspects of the medical education organization. It is noteworthy that the founders of medical education in Kuwait realized with the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine in 1973, the Faculty of Allied Health and Faculty of Nursing in 1978 the need to provide national cadres in various branches and medical specializations. It also entrusted to HSC the responsibility to supervise and update the basic infrastructure in a manner commensurate with the needs of existing faculties, and in accordance with the future requirements of programs and faculties in order to achieve the mission of required integration in providing an advanced educational environment that ensures the qualification of cadres for the various health service branches.
