The College is located in the city of Rabigh with a charming sea view. The aim was to minimize the existing health care deficiency and cater for the needs of locally qualified doctors in both public and private sectors. It was destined to serve the human, health and economic development in the governorates near Jeddah and to meet the needs of the present and future labour market.
