Welcome to the Faculty of Allied Medical Sciences!

The faculty was established at the University of Philadelphia in the second semester of the 2021-2022 academic year. This was happened in response to the urgent need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects on community health. Furthermore, the health indicators of Jordan’s community show an increase in the incidence of non-communicable and chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and others, which affect individuals’ quality of life and increase disabilities. All of these necessitate highly qualified health care professionals in order to compete in the labor market.  

Our faculty offers outstanding scientific and clinical health degree programs at the undergraduate level. Our undergraduate programs include physical therapy and clinical nutrition and dietetics, and we are planning to open more programs in the future to meet the global need. As dean of this faculty, I will support students in their educational journey so that they gain the knowledge and skills needed to impact their profession and become leaders in their professional field.

The Allied Medical Sciences educational programs provide active learning opportunities to engage our students and prepare them for future careers as researchers and clinical professionals dedicated to enriching the scientific and healthcare communities. Students have opportunities to participate in research and clinical fieldwork. Students gain leadership skills by participating in student groups on campus as well as local and national student groups for their profession. Our students are encouraged to engage in community service activities to broaden their horizons and understanding of others. Furthermore, we mentor students toward interprofessional collaboration through shared educational opportunities that connects students from different programs. Through this work, our students learn the value of other professions, as well as the essentials of collaboration – teamwork, communication, mutual respect, and shared values.

Students in our clinical programs receives sound theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on experience in the laboratory under the supervision of hand-picked academicians who adhere to international standards before beginning clinical practice. Clinical training will be provided through clinical rotations at many sites in our area, including hospitals, nursing homes, private practices, specialty clinics, schools, etc.

Our faculty members are excellent scientists, academicians, and clinicians who are dedicated to supporting students to ensure that they reach their full potential as scientists and as clinical practitioners. In addition to providing the engaging educational opportunities mentioned, our faculty is committed to the creation and dissemination of new knowledge through research in order to address the healthcare needs of the region and the country.

We focus our efforts on developing students to become scientists and clinicians who are committed to evidence-based practice, aim to provide the best of care for their patients, hold patient care in the highest regard, and maintain professionalism and patient privacy. We aim to provide excellence in healthcare to our region.
