JHAH receives SCFHS accreditation for PG medical training

Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) has become the first private institution to be accredited by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) for postgraduate medical training.
On Sept. 29, JHAH was recognized by Dr. Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah, minister of health, for fulfilling all required SCFHS accreditation standards with distinction and being awarded full institutional accreditation.
“We thrive to pursue excellence in training. This recognition and the honorary award bring us closer to fulfilling our dream and help us enhance further the learning experience at our center,” said Chief of the Office of Academic Affairs Dr. Abdulrazack Amir.
Institutional accreditation by SCFHS aims at creating an ideal learning environment based on health education principles for both trainers and trainees by harnessing all educational and clinical resources at an institution into a postgraduate professional health care program. JHAH’s residency program applies cutting-edge teaching methods that include simulations and an immersion in an evidence-based care model within JHAH’s proactive, patient-centric primary care service.
Dr. Daniele Rigamonti, FACS, chief executive of JHAH, said: “We are proud and honored to say that JHAH is the only private health care institution that received this prestigious recognition by SCFHS recognizing our quality and commitment in postgraduate medical training.”
