Abstract

The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has placed a high priority on medical education. King Abdulaziz University is developing a medical curriculum aimed at being responsive to the health needs of the people of the kingdom. In creating the curriculum, planners devoted considerable time and effort to studying health manpower resources and needs, regional developments, demographic patterns, socioeconomic and cultural factors, general education development plans, vital statistics, and existing and projected health facilities. These and many other factors played a role in determining the format and the content of the curriculum, which is intended to produce individuals for leadership roles as medical educators, medical practitioners, and researchers.
