Internal Medicine

Overview:

The department established in 1979.  At that time, the curriculum was presented through a group of physician who belonged to the Directorate of Health in Sulymania.  After the College was transferred to Arbil, physicians from Mousil took upon themselves the task of teaching Internal Medicine to the medical students.   Later on, an Iraqi physician who had MSc degree became the head of the department together with one lecturer from India.

In 1983, the department of Community Medicine merged with the Department of Internal Medicine (The Department of Community Medicine at that time consisted of an Iraqi Head department and a lecturer from India).

In 1984, the department consisted of 4 Lecturers with PhD degree and 2 with MSc degree, in addition to lecturers that weren’t college faculty (physicians from the Directorate of Health in Arbil and from the University of Mousil).
