About the department

The General Medical Department for the academic year 2023-2024 has been established to graduate medical personnel with the necessary, comprehensive, and specialized skills to work in kidney dialysis centers (hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis) for the treatment of patients suffering from acute and chronic kidney failure using dialysis machines.

The branch of artificial kidney, also known as dialysis, is one of the clinical medical branches that focuses on training students on how to perform the process of artificial kidney dialysis through a special device designed to replace the function of the natural kidney that has lost its ability to function properly. Dialysis is carried out using intravenous solutions prepared for the process of washing and purifying the blood from harmful waste, removing toxic substances and excess water, as well as dissolved materials and salts from the blood for individuals who are unable to perform such functions naturally, often referred to as chronic and acute kidney failure.

The department offers a 4-year academic program where students receive fundamental and specialized theoretical knowledge along with practical training to acquire the necessary skills for working in industrial kidney centers. Upon completion of the study requirements, the department awards a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Kidney Technologies.

The academic study period:

The duration of study at the college is four academic years, after which the student graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in industrial kidney technology, qualifying them to work in kidney dialysis centers within the health sector.

The academic curriculum:
