Faculty of Medicine & Medical Sciences

Medical Education at the University of Balamand begins with the first two years at the main campus of the University located on the Hill of Balamand overlooking the coastal area of El–Koura, northern Lebanon.
The four-year MD program is completed with two years of clinical training at St. George Hospital (founded 1875) in Achrafieh-Beirut; one of Lebanon’s leading academic tertiary care medical centers.
The four years of education and clinical patient-oriented training form an integrated modular continuum that emphasizes an analytical inquisitive process of learning based on active hands-on acquisition of knowledge and skills through closely supervised and tutored teamwork. This allows students to expand their knowledge in basic as well as applied medical sciences and build professional character, skills and problem solving abilities. All are essential as foundations for postgraduate training and leadership in providing quality health care.
Institutional affiliations with leading centers of excellence in Europe and North America facilitate transfer of knowledge and extensive academic and professional exposure of students and faculty. Moreover, such affiliations allow interested students to study in other faculties and medical centers.
