This chapter examines in detail the provision of medical education in Saudi medical colleges, including an emphasis on the processes being enacted to ensure that the quality of medical training is of world-class standard. The Saudi medical colleges have adopted most of the current global trends in medical education, including the integrated and problem-based learning systems. Much more, however, needs to be done to strike a balance between basic scientific knowledge and professional practice.
