13 March 2012
   His Excellency the Minister of Health, Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabeeah, has stated that it is of crucial importance to open more medical empirical colleges. He said, “If we work hard on preparing and qualifying national competencies, we will boast our skilled, highly-qualified graduates and health practitioners, with spectacular capability of pursuing the scientific path in several health specialties. This will be reflected, in turn, on the quality of health performance, and development of the health services offered by our Wise Government to every Saudi citizen and resident.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Al-Rabeeah called upon all stakeholders to take human resources development as a top priority, with a view to accelerating progress in the health sector. He affirmed that nations usually boast their qualified manpower and distinguished competencies. “From our long expertise in this domain,” Dr. Al-Rabeeah said, “I can tell that distinguished health practitioners are the backbone of any professional health performance. Consequently, the keen interest shown by universities, among which King Saud University is first and foremost, in the development of this aspect reassures us that the health sector is proceeding at a steady pace towards our sought-after objectives.”
He went on to say, “We need to place more emphasis on the quality of educational outcomes, and supply such colleges with the necessary requirements, both financial and moral, as well as providing the proper academic, empirical and training infrastructure, in order for these colleges to be able to incur its responsibilities, and carry them to perfection.”
While opening the First Conference of Applied Science Colleges, held at King Saud University, on March 11th, 2012, Dr. Al-Rabeeah stressed, “The Government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques pays close attention and generous support to health education and training. It should come as no surprise, then, that this very issue is regarded a top priority of the Ministry of Health.”
 “It is no secret,” he added, “that our country, during this prosperous reign, is witnessing an unprecedented developmental revival in all fields and aspects of life, most notably the health field. It is generally acknowledged that the Kingdom has taken momentous steps on the path towards health progress; which adds much to our burden and responsibility, for the purpose of realizing the aspirations of the Governors, May Allâh protect them, in light of the ongoing support and ambitious plans developed by the Government with a view to developing and improving the performance of all governmental and private sectors.”
As his statement drew to a close, Dr. Al-Rabeeah said, “We, in MOH, are looking forward to cooperation and coordination with all Saudi universities, to exert greater efforts for the sake of a skilled, highly-qualified Saudi generation, able to assume the tasks assigned to them with impressive efficiency. This should be our ultimate goal and focus of attention, both in the present and future.”
