Vice President's Message
King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences (KSAU-HS) is committed to improve and maintain quality through effective support of leadership and active involvement of faculty, students and non-academic staff in the quality assurance processes. These processes are designed to involve the KSAU-HS community by effectively integrating quality in their academic and non-academic processes and regularly evaluating their own performance. KSAU-HS is also committed to provide high quality education as one of its core values.
Development and Quality Management (DQM) Affairs launched its activities in July 2013 and assigned the task to manage development and quality in KSAU-HS. Our vision is to be creative and innovative to achieve excellence and sustainable quality in health-sciences education. This vision will be translated into a reality through strategic goals and initiatives. The DQM will also lead the process of accreditation at the institute and programs levels. We expect that accreditation will assess the university to identify gaps in its processes and launch specific projects that further enhance the academic environment and culture of quality to ultimately reach excellence and sustainable high quality. Another major task of DQM Affairs is to revisit and reconstruct and oversee the different components of the strategic plan based on the current situation and facilities made available by moving to the new campuses in Riyadh, Jeddah, and Al-Ahsa. The DQM welcome any initiatives and suggestions that will bring inputs in its planning and development processes and further enhances business processes.
