The University's intentions over the next ten years are ambitious; we are striving to establish a place amongst the best medical varsities in the Middle East Region and in turn achieve a place among the high ranking institutions in the world. Our optimism is justified and fuelled by our growth in the past decade from a college to a university. Any plan must be considered in the context in which the plan occurs. The elements, which set the context of this plan, include the purpose of the institution, the institutional vision, the organizational values, external environmental factors and internal environmental factors. These factors further describe the environment in which the university operates; the current strategic plan 2010 -2020 was constructed and will next be implemented. The University's strategic planning context involves both internal and external environments.
