Provide medical students with optimal educational experiences so that they are prepared to pursue careers as leaders in medicine and science to meet the needs of society. 2. Strengthen infrastructure and support for education (i.e. building more hall/class rooms, labs, etc.) 3. Enhance teaching effectiveness by recruiting more teaching staff, regular training of staff-members and collaboration with more external healthcare institutions. 4. Initiating new divisions and programs i.e. Medical Laboratory Sciences, Anesthesia, etc. for further enrichment to healthcare system. 5.
