Community Medicine - Primary Healthcare in the KSA

This course is planned and developed by a cooperative multi-disciplinary partnership of the College of Medicine faculty and the community-based health services providers.  The course is responsive to the evolving social and health systems of Saudi Arabia. It serves medical students by providing community-centered learning experiences. Community medicine at Alfaisal College of Medicine is a longitudinal program consisting of several courses. This first course includes field visits to some of the community medical centers.  Also, integral to the course is the Community Oriented Research Project, wherein students undertake a field research project that explores relevant community health issues, such as prevalence of disease and illness, factors affecting such illness, and community attitudes to and knowledge of the problems affecting them. In our everyday clinic we start to see patterns and trends:  epidemics of heart disease, obesity, depression, substance abuse. Using the tools and basic principles of community medicine/public health and epidemiology, we can take the next step of learning about the factors that lie behind these illnesses and deal appropriately with them.  This course is designed to teach students the basic principles of community medicine/public health and confirm what they already know:  that, through community involvement, physicians have the knowledge and the opportunity to change our society/communities for the better.

Occupational and Environmental Medicine - COM 237

Occupational and Environmental Medicine is the area of family medicine devoted to prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness, and disability and the promotion of health and productivity of workers, their families and communities. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is industrializing rapidly. It is imperative that the primary care and other physicians have a practical working knowledge on the range of occupational hazards in the Kingdom, especially how to recognize, evaluate, treat or prevent them.  Many Saudi and expat workers are employed by small or mid-size companies that may not have a full-time occupational physician on site. Thus, the importance of occupational medicine training becomes evident when considering the incidence of work-place induced illnesses and injuries. This course is usually offered in the third or fourth semester, teaching the medical students general and basic principles of Occupational and Environmental Medicine. It consists of 16 weekly lectures of fundamental topics in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. In addition, we usually conduct filed trips and encourage students to participate is filed work to give student exposure to and some experience in this important area of family medicine. 

Rural Health - COM 356

This course provides an overview of the factors affecting healthcare delivery in rural regions of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the region; exploration of the significance of poverty, low population density, and geographic mal-distribution of providers for the development of policy and practice in healthcare and administration. In the second part of the course student will learn to identify main groups of communicable diseases in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, identify the links in the chain of infection and means of breaking the chain. Student will also learn the signs and symptoms, causative agent, reservoir, means of transmission, for these locally known communicable diseases. During this course students will be asked to conduct a community research project addressing one of the course objectives and present findings to the class.
