Health: Medical Training

To meet the requirements for the Kingdom's healthcare, it was necessary to complement the hospital building program with an equally ambitious medical training program.

Medical training institutes were established at Abha and in the Holy City of Madinah. Training centers were set up in the King Abdul Aziz University in Jiddah and in the King Faisal University and a 760-bed teaching hospital was located in the King Saud University campus outside Riyadh.

The Kingdom's healthcare provision has been so successful that it is cited by the World Health Organization as a model for the developing world.
