General Information about the College 

     The CoAMS was established in early 2009 in Riyadh and then the college’s branch in Al Ahsa in 2013 and in Jeddah in 2015. It is one of several health colleges encompassed by King Saud bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences. The Saudi Government set a priority objective of improving the quality of life of the people of the kingdom and healthcare is a basic need of the individual and consequently the expectation for excellent healthcare services. Saudi manpower in this specialty is limited and lags far behind international figures. This imposes great pressure on CoAMS to graduate applied medical sciences professionals to fill in this wide gap. In addition, the college adopted with modification similar program curricula of Emergency Medical Services (Paramedics) of Flinders University, Australia, which is the first program in the Kingdom’s Universities, and that of Clinical Laboratory Sciences and Radiology of Arkansas, and Respiratory Therapy of South Alabama Universities, Occupational Therapy and Clinical Nutrition of Oklahoma, and Anesthesia of City College, USA. 

CoAMS’s mission is comprehensive, its vision ambitious, its goals challenging, and its core values unambiguous. The comprehensive and ambitious mission of the college is in line with the mission of KSAU-HS which aims “to achieve global leadership in health professions education with commitment to excellence in research, patient care, and community service”. CoAMS-J’s strategic plan is a route map for the future of education, research, and patient care, which will continue to direct the college in realizing its aspirations. 
The college has had many successes and achieved many accomplishments. The following is a list of some of these key achievements: CoAMS employed 165 faculty and staff members in Riyadh, 95 faculty and staff members in Jeddah and around 60 faculty and staff members in Al Ahsa. The number of graduates of the college among the three campuses has exceeds 3,400 with more than 500 students currently enrolled in the college academic programs. 

The college's Emergency Medical Services and Clinical Laboratory Sciences programs have achieved significant recognition by winning the President's Award for the best program at the university in 2017 and 2021, respectively. These accolades are a testament to the high standards and excellence of the college's programs.
