Situated on a 20-acre campus in Northern Manhattan and accounting for roughly half of Columbia University’s nearly $3 billion annual budget, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) provides global leadership in scientific research, health and medical education, and patient care.
CUMC’s major teaching hospital affiliates are NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, both of which share the CUMC campus. The medical center also has academic affiliations with the Harlem Hospital Medical Center, operated by the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation; Bassett Healthcare, in Cooperstown, NY; St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center, in New York City; the Isabella Geriatric Center, in New York City; and Arnot Ogden Medical Center, in Elmira, NY. Columbia’s faculty practice is ColumbiaDoctors.
CUMC plays a leading role in global health issues, in particular, capacity building. About 30 percent of P&S students participate in international programs, and almost 50 percent of third-year dental students participate in the school’s global health externships. The nursing school has research and teaching partnerships with schools and clinics in Bangladesh, the Dominican Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, and Taiwan. Mailman School of Public Health has programs in more than 100 countries across the globe.
P&S, founded in 1767, was the first school to award the MD degree (in 1770), and its legacy of innovation continues. Major curriculum changes implemented in 2009 reflect the changing practice of medicine in the 21st century. The new Bassett Track trains students for primary care work in rural environments. P&S is one of the most research-intensive medical schools, and its students’ MCAT scores and grade-point averages are among the highest in the country.
The College of Dental Medicine (CDM) was founded in 1916. Nearly 20 percent of dental school applications go to Columbia, which has one of the highest national Dental Admission Test (DAT) averages. Dental faculty and students collaborate with colleagues from a wide range of disciplines at CUMC and around the world, incorporating clinical, research, and public policy approaches to oral health issues. The CDM is also the largest provider of primary and specialty oral health care in the Northern Manhattan communities of Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood.
Columbia University School of Nursing was founded in 1892. It was the first to award a master’s degree in a clinical nursing specialty, in 1956, and its nurse-midwifery program celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2005. The school offers the combined bachelor/master of science, a variety of master’s degrees, doctor of nursing practice (DNP), PhD, and joint degrees in nursing/public health and nursing/business. Research centers at the school are the Center for Children and Families, the Center for Evidence-Based Practice in the Underserved, the Center for Health Policy, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research to Prevent Infections.
Mailman School of Public Health, founded in 1922, has programs in more than 100 countries and is a leader in HIV/AIDS, public mental health, environmental health, global health, and urban health. Nearly 40 percent of Mailman’s full-time faculty hold joint or interdisciplinary appointments in other Columbia University departments, schools, and centers. The school’s 20 research centers include the International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment, the Center for Infection and Immunity, and the National Center for Disaster Preparedness.
CUMC is especially proud of its relationship with the surrounding Washington Heights community, many of whose members have roots in the Dominican Republic and other Spanish-speaking countries. CUMC’s Office of Government and Community Affairs serves as the primary liaison between the Medical Center and the community. Currently, CUMC has more than 40 active research and clinical programs in Northern Manhattan, including Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood.
An-Najah National University is Palestine’s leading academic institution in medicine and health care. Since the inception of its Faculty of Medicine in 1999, the university has made tremendous achievements in the promotion of medical science and care for Palestinians—the latest of these achievements being the An-Najah National University Hospital in Nablus.
Nablus has a population of more than 340,000 and is the second-largest country in the West Bank. The city is central to all northern villages, making it a natural hub for medical services to over 1,000,000 inhabitants. With only 24 government hospitals in the West Bank and Gaza, the ratio between hospital beds and the total population is 1 to 1,000. Recognizing this huge disparity, An-Najah’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, began construction of NNUH jointly with the Ministry of Health in 2008, establishing Palestine’s first university hospital.
Today, although construction continues, the hospital’s main facility is operational and currently treating patients. With 120 beds and a total area of 17,000 square meters, the facility hosts a fully running intensive care unit (ICU), emergency room, dialysis treatment, X-ray, ultrasound, and computerized tomography (CT) scan—making the hospital the most advanced provider of medical services in Palestine.
Welcome to the Web site of Al-Quds School of Medicine. As dean of the medical school, I am proud of the programme we offer and the quality of students we enroll since we started in 1994. I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about us.
The medical school is the major faculty in the Health Sciences complex at Al-Quds university., which comprises the other health related schools-Dentistry, Pharmacy, Public health, Nursing and Allied Health Professions
Although the School of Medicine does not own a teaching hospital, it is affiliated with the main hospitals in the locality for the purpose of clinical training of its students. Together they make up a 700 bed secondary/tertiary care facilities. However, The University is in the process of establishing its own teaching clinical center on the university campus with the creation of a level 1 Emergency center
The main mission of the medical school is to educate professionally competent physicians for the needs of the public health care system. The Faculty has recognised that biomedical and clinical knowledge, based largely on natural sciences, is of central importance in medical practice. In addition, medical students should consider health as a multi-factorial entity with cultural, psychological and social dimensions. Accordingly, the Faculty has reformed its teaching and learning philosophy and restructured the curriculum to guide changes in undergraduate medical education.
The purpose of the new education philosophy, is to educate experts of medicine, who are knowledgeable and responsible physicians for clinical work as well as for biomedical and clinical research and administration. It is suggested that the future physician has integrated competence and holistic view of patient treatment, in which scientific thinking, knowledge of behavioural science and ethics are integrated with clinical knowledge.
Our medical school carefully selects applicants who demonstrate the intellectual ability, personal attributes, and motivation to be successful in medical school, in postgraduate training, and throughout their professional careers. We also recognize and appreciate a genuine desire on the part of our students to improve the lives of others by preventing, treating, and when possible, curing disease. Our students enjoy an atmosphere of camaraderie and collegiality with each other and with their tutors. Beyond the academic experiences offered at our medical school, we encourage the development of our students as caring physicians dedicated to providing the very best care, professionally and personally, to all patients.

President Arafat’s decision in 1991 to establish Al-Azhar University-Gaza has materialized the overwhelming dream of the Palestinian academic cadres in creating a Palestinian national university, that can fulfill the ambitions and achieve the dreams of the Palestinian upcoming generations, and help them pursue their higher studies under the supervision of highly qualified Palestinian cadres. Having been given limited access to Arab and international universities.
Thousands of Palestinian students have joined Al-Azhar University-Gaza pursuing studies in different academic fields, and acquiring Palestinian values to help them take part in the construction of their own state. In nineteen years of its life, the University has twelve faculties. Besides, the university comprises educational centers, which can meet the needs of the Palestinian community, and help its youth majoring in diverse and fruitful fields of post-graduate knowledge.
Moreover, the University has established postgraduate study programs towards a Master Degree in Pharmacy, Arts, Mediterranean Studies, Law, Education, Agriculture, Water Sciences and Environment, Statistics, Accounting, Business Administration, Economic, Political Sciences, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics.
It will be historically acknowledged that Al-Azhar University-Gaza has positively participated in educating successive Palestinian generations whose main pillars are: planning, hard work, and objectivity, and in helping hundreds of graduates to represent and develop the Palestinian local community.
May God bless our efforts

Located Ain Shams University Hospitals on an area of 24 acres and includes approximately 3,200 beds serving about one million patients a year and outpatient department procedure.
Teaching since 1752
Medical teaching in Manchester began when Charles White founded the first modern hospital in the Manchester area, the Manchester Royal Infirmary, in 1752. He was followed by Joseph Jordan, who opened a School of Anatomy in 1814.
School opens its doors
Various privately-run medical teaching colleges amalgamated to form the Royal Manchester School of Medicine and Surgery. The School of Medicine was officially opened in October 1874 by Thomas Huxley, one of the great exponents of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. It formed part of Owens College, later to become The University of Manchester.
First degrees awarded
In the following ten years, teaching and laboratory space expanded dramatically, culminating in 1883 in a charter to allow medical and surgical degrees to be awarded for the first time. During the latter part of the 1800s and early 1900s many new departments were opened and Manchester Royal Infirmary was re-sited on land close to the University. The School’s first female medical student, Dr Catherine Chisholm, graduated in 1904.
A further grand expansion started in the 1950s under Lord Stopford, and was particularly focused on clinical departments. The new School of Medicine, in the Stopford Building, was opened in 1973 and took in 200 medical, 60 dental, and 20 nursing students. With a further 75 medical students from the University of St Andrews taken into the clinical years, Manchester had become one of the largest medical schools in the world.
New approach to medical education
In 1994, the School was the first in the country to move to a problem-based learning (PBL) approach to medical education. This develops the key skills required by doctors in the 21st century: the abilities to question and interpret information and, above all, to communicate effectively with patients.
The Consultation Skills Learning Centre (CSLC) was officially opened in July 2012 by Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, The President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manchester. In 2011, the Medical School reception was refurbished.
The Society is an innovative and progressive institution, firmly established at the forefront of modern-day medicine and a leading player in the advancement of medical research and knowledge.
We occupy a unique position within the medical profession, offering education and recognised qualifications in vital areas of medical practice that are not provided elsewhere. It is the examining body for eight different Diplomas:

The Medical University of Graz is committed to fulfill the mission of the University Act 2002 in relation to the development of a quality management system for quality and performance assurance in all sectors, especially for the power range “study, teaching and training” in a comprehensive way.
For us, a quality defined in this area not only through concerted activities for the achievement of quality in teaching and learning. It is essential that these are not isolated to see and evaluate, but interact.
This means that measures that are agreed to optimizing teaching not recognize certain points, but affect a variety of processes – and thus a large number of people – have. Therefore transparent processes are the basis for purposeful change.
Main processes in the core process “Study and teaching”
