College Curriculum:Study Plan and Curriculum Structure
The curriculum of the four programs offered by CAMS (i.e., Emergency Medical Services, Respiratory Program, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and Occupational Therapy) consists of two phases. The duration of the courses for each program is four years.
Pre-Professional (Preparatory Four Semesters, which are offered to all health science colleges). Students from all Health Science Colleges attend the first three semesters together. The students are offered intensive English language courses throughout these semesters to strengthen their English language. This will enable them to communicate fluently, as English is the instructional language while studying the professional courses. This phase also introduces students to the basic concepts of general and medical science that are needed for higher-level education in the Health Sciences.
Arabic language skills, Islamic values, and Medical ethics are also taught in the first semester. In the second semester, courses in Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics for health sciences are offered. In the second academic year, courses in Biochemistry, Behavioral Sciences, Biostatic and Introduction to Evidence-based Medicine, Computer Sciences, and Informatics are offered during the third semester.
During the fourth semester, the students in all three programs study Anatomy and Physiology, Principles of Diseases, Basic Pharmacology, Medical Ethics, and Patient Safety and Health Profession Education. At this point, students also begin to take courses in their specialty area. Introduction to Emergency Medical Services will be offered to the students of this program, while Introduction to Clinical Laboratory Sciences will be covered by the Laboratory Sciences program students. Those in the Respiratory Therapy specialty are offered Introduction to Respiratory Therapy, while Occupational therapy will be offered similar courses.
Students’ Allocation at College of Applied Medical Science.
During the second academic year, students will go through the allocation process which primarily would start by students’ preferences among the seven programs offered by College of Applied Medical Science. Post to the allocation, students will study an introductory course to the program which he/she is accepted in along with their courses at the preparatory program (COSHP).
At this stage, student is officially eligible to be transferred to the academic program at the college of applied medical science. The program’s duration is two academic years. Once completed, the students will start their one year internship to graduate.
