Allied Health Sciences (AHS) is a newly established department in 2014 that delivers the Biomedical Sciences (BMS) program and 

other Allied Health programs (Physiotherapy, Occupational therapy and Audiology and Speech language therapy), which are not effective

 yet. The BMS program aims to train undergraduate students to become successful biomedical scientists, thereby enhancing the quality of healthcare in the Sultanate of Oman. Graduates of this program can be employed in diagnostic hospital laboratories and research

laboratories studying biological and health sciences. They can, alternatively, pursue Masters and PhD programs to achieve academic positions in institutions of higher education.

 

Mission

      The BMS program aims to produce graduates who can pursue professional careers in medical diagnostic laboratories and

       become successful biomedical scientists to augment the excellence of healthcare in the Sultanate of Oman.

 

Vision

     BMS is a health profession education program that requires undergraduate students to be:

 

A. Health care professionals who perform medical diagnostic analyses on body specimens and thus aid in the diagnosis 

    of diseases.

B. Proficient in the key principles of how the human body works and to find new ways to improve understanding of diseases

     that translate into developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies.

C.Trained to be independent researchers and pursue higher education.

D. Knowledgeable and skillful to work in other health sectors such as the pharmaceutical and health industry and/or 

     conduct health and scientific research.

Teaching curricula

1- Biomedical Sciences program

The BMS curriculum encompasses both theoretical and hands-on laboratory training in a clinical setting, provided in the disciplines of Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Microbiology and Pathology. The program runs for 4 years following the Foundation courses. Successful fulfillment of the objectives of the program requires substantiation of competence. Therefore, the program involves a mandatory internship for nine weeks, where students are required to choose an approved health center or hospital around the Sultanate wherein they train further in clinical laboratory techniques in one of the above designated disciplines, as well as demonstrate competence during real-life experiences in clinical settings. Keeping in perspective the progress in biomedical research endeavors both locally and globally, a comprehensive research module is included in the curriculum allowing students to outline research proposals and perform basic research and data-analysis. Additionally, in order to inculcate better laboratory work ethics and clinical judgment, appropriate lessons are included in the curriculum. As biomedical scientists work in a dynamic and evolving environment, and use technological equipment to provide information that must be processed rapidly and accurately, suitable courses on laboratory management and quality control are also introduced into the program.

 

2- MD Intercalated Phase program

In addition to the BMS program, the AHS department offers courses to MD students admitted to the intercalated phase program to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences.  More details about this degree can be found at http://wwwdev.squ.edu.om/medicine/Programs.aspx
