This week, the Faculty of Medicine began conducting interviews for new students applying to study medicine, who are subjected to a series of assessment tests for their skills and abilities in terms of scientific level, proficiency of English and Arabic languages, communication skills and decision-making ability, in addition to the requirement for admitted students to submit a health and fitness certificate and take a COVID-19 vaccine as a condition for completing the admission procedures.
It is of note that the faculty receives applications to study in their medical program from various cities domestically and many countries internationally, such as Egypt, Nigeria, Ireland, Syria and various others. During the last week, there were interviews for Libyan students from Tripoli, Tobruk, Canada, Turkey as well as students of other nationalities.
It is also of note that the Libyan International Medical University relies on modern and advanced learning methods such as problem-based learning, team-based learning, interdisciplinary curricula, principles of scientific research, critical thinking and a certain amount of hours of community service volunteer work as one of the graduation requirements. Students who were admitted at the beginning of this academic year will have the opportunity of obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Applied Medical Sciences upon successful completion of their third year and after completing the years of clinical training, they will be awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree, earning them double qualifications.
