We are delighted to share with you the news of further great achievements of Alfaisal students from the College of Medicine. Under the leadership of Mamoud Sakkalaik 5th Year student, Mamoud and his team, with the support of Dr Khaled AlKattan together with other faculty and staff from College of Medicine, established a Basic Life Support Site which has been internationally accredited by the American Heart Association.
