The Saudi Society for Medical Education (SSME)

Medical education, in general, represent one of the major concerns of the higher education sector in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This important and influential sector is in the development process and is expanding in its fields. The recent past has seen an increase in the number of medical schools and health colleges, both in the governmental and private sectors. Therefore, the establishment of a scientific society for medical education will achieve an important demand; to contribute to the field of health care for everyone that is relevant to this sector, and especially in the field of curriculum development, plans, education strategies, teaching methods, admissions policies, means and techniques of education, assessment and research aspects of medical and health education.  We hope that this association will be able to provide an effective forum to gather experience with good thinking and thought and to be the beginning of a distinguished collaboration especially in Saudi Arabia and the GCC countries in general.
