The Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) countries, especially the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are currently witnessing rapid industrial development, but in the absence of qualified occupational health and safety (OHS) professionals. This being said, these and similar countries are in need of qualified personnel in the field of OHS to ensure a working environment that is conducive to the health and well being of all. The College of Medicine started this two-year program in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with the objective of training Saudi's and nationals of the GCC and other related countries in the field of OHS.
