The Vice-Deanship for Development and Quality (VDDQ), with all its departments and units, is committed to achieving, establishing, and emphasizing quality assurance processes in all the College’s academic and administrative systems, activities and practices comprising its institutional system.
VDDQ follows Saudi Arabia’s vision 2030 and its strategic objectives, which represents a key pillar of transformation and change into evidence-based practice in Saudi society. This vision has greatly benefited educational institutions, such as our prestigious College, by promoting knowledge and the development of the educational process to become one of its main pillars and instilling a culture of quality and continuous development in all of the College’s administrative and academic operations.
VDDQ with all its employees seeks to undertake the responsibility to improve the quality of education, its performance and its outcomes in accordance with current demands under an effective institutional system based on the vision, mission and objectives approved in its strategic and operational plan.
VDDQ also adopts the follow-up and continuous improvement of the internal review process through regular periodic auditing reports that come from academic programs, according to the requirements and standards of academic quality assurance approved by the National Center for Academic Accreditation and Evaluation (NCAAA). These standards are based on the review of evidence, studies, specific performance indicators and benchmarks to ensure a rapid response to improve and evaluate its performance to achieve the satisfaction and expectations of the beneficiaries of the services and outcomes ofPrince Sultan Military College of Health Sciences internally and externally.
In conclusion, I must emphasize that quality is an ongoing process that needs time and cannot be achieved without collaboration between all Administrations, Departments and Units, and through the spirit of teamwork within the whole College. I am aware that the road will be a long and arduous one, but with united efforts and teamwork, we will move our College towards achieving our desired vision. Of course with, the unlimited support from the College Dean, Dr. Idan bin Musa Al-Zahrani, and the General Directorate of Medical Services of the Armed Forces, and the continuous support from the leaders of our Country – may Allah bless them – in implementing Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.
In the name of the Vice-Deanship for Development and Quality, I extend my sincere thanks to all College staff for their time and sincere efforts that contributed to the promotion of development and the quality processes, which will eventually lead us to obtaining accreditation.
