The campus will be fully equipped with state of the art equipment, laboratories and research facilities to provide a conducive learning experience for our students. Student accommodations are currently provided by affiliated student housing complexes until our provision of a future dorm on campus is completed. We conduct fully accredited degree programs with competent faculty and innovative facilities, to provide a solid medical foundation and to enable students to obtain a license to practice medicine in US, Canada, UK or any other member country of the United Nations.
