The family physician coordinates care among other specialists and non-physician providers, integrating care at various levels of the health system. The Family Medicine Specialist provides holistic care of the whole person, rather than simply disease oriented treatment. Family medicine is community oriented, recognizing the context of the individual in a community impacted by public health issues. The Family Medicine Specialist focuses on the preventive and promotive aspects of care, as well as curative. The Family Medicine Specialist provides care that is continuous over a long period of time, rather than episodic. Finally, family medicine is cost-effective, using limited resources wisely.

As a generalist, the Family Medicine Specialist can function well in a variety of settings, academic or non-academic, rural or urban, private or public, among the rich or poor, in district or provincial hospitals or clinics. However, this curriculum is designed specifically to prepare the Family Medicine Specialist to function in the District Hospital.

It was established in the academic year of 2010-2011 with the aim to produce medical technologist with knowledge, skills and attitudes who are able to fill the gap in the health working force of the laboratories. Its academic program is designed for four years of study leading Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Technology (BMLT).

It’s curriculum is community oriented education and combines theoretical knowledge of the basic natural and medical sciences with the skillful use of sophisticated equipment and techniques to provide vital information that may be required for diagnosis and treatment of diseases, quality control, quality assurance and research to formulate the policies and measures for the prevention of diseases. The educational program is designed to produce professionals who can use the knowledge they have acquired to develop their countries and improve the quality of lives of their people.

There are Inadequacies in laboratory infrastructure and a low national priority and neglected, not only because of more pressing health problems and emergencies but also because of lack of manpower, skills and equipment which finally leads to underutilization of laboratory services available. Health care programs dictated by donor agencies often do not consider broader regional needs or make provisions for overall sustainability.

The migration of skilled laboratory personnel due to the civil unrest deteriorates the situation. The majority of hospitals cannot consistently provide even these basic services in a quality-controlled fashion. unreliable and inaccurate laboratory diagnostic testing leads to unnecessary expenditures in a country already plagued by resource shortages, promotes the perception that laboratory testing is unhelpful, and compromises patient care. Amoud School of lab technology was established to initiate new source of producing skilled laboratory personnel to ensure accurate laboratory services that contribute well to the patient care and secure physicians' confidence in applying laboratory results to their daily practice.

The curriculum is community oriented education with emphasis on self-learning to develop in the students the ability and willingness to pursue their own learning after graduation to become competent lab technicians and community oriented.

The School is also commited to advance knowledge about health through research in all areas related to health care including basic science, clinical science education and studies related to methods for the delivery of health care
