The development of Oman Medical College was an important milestone in Omanís march towards provision of world-class  
healthcare in the country. The creation of Oman Medical College has fulfilled Omanís need for opening new avenues for  
medical education.

The starting of Oman Medical College in the private sector was in tune with the vision and directives of His Majesty Sultan  
Qaboos bin Said. Dr. P. Mohammed Ali, the Managing Director of Galfar group of companies conceptualized this initiative in  
the year 2000 and took it forward with the approval of the Ministry of Higher Education and secured the academic partnership  
with the School of Medicine of West Virginia University in the United States of America. OMC began its first year of operations  
on October 1, 2001 with an incoming class of 69 students enrolled for the premedical education program.

The Government of Oman has extended unqualified support to the project by sponsoring a large number of Omani students,  
giving free land, and above all, by dedicating the Sohar Regional Hospital as the teaching hospital of the Oman Medical College.
