Fakeeh College for Medical Sciences was established in 2003/1424H to provide the Kingdom with qualified Saudi health professionals in nursing and medical sciences and to contribute to Saudization of healthcare providers. The college has expanded in the recent years and the number of college graduates has reached (1124) graduates in 2019. They hold leadership positions in nursing and medical laboratory specialties in various healthcare and academic institutions, both within and outside of Saudi Arabia.
In September 2017, the FCMS started the admission of the first batch of Medical Students for the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), and in the following year the Bachelor of Pharm-D was established. Both programs are expected to graduate the first batch in the academic year 2023/2024.
Moreover, several postgraduate programs were established during the last five years in nursing specialties and medical education. FCMS went into international partnerships with the Royal College of Surgeons, (Ireland) and Dundee University (Medical School) to support its programs at both the under and postgraduate levels.
