With the support from His Highness, Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ministry of Education (MOHE), RAKMHSU has grown from strength to strength in the last 12 years.  RAKMHSU has become a place of not only academic reputation but also of cultural integration.  We are known for our absolutely honest and transparent administration with a willingness to improve.

We are happy to share with you that in the year 2006, we started with just 22 students and now, RAKMHSU has 1300 plus students hailing from 50 Nationalities.  Similarly we have 109 Teaching faculty, 118 Adjunct Clinical faculty and 102 Non-teaching staff hailing from 32 nationalities.  In terms of physical facilities, we have the University building with a built up area of 216,000 sft, with all the state of the art facilities including an independent building for RAKCODS. Keeping in view the fast growth of the University, already one additional academic block for the Pharmacy and Nursing Colleges with a total built up area of 96,000 sft and a separate sports complex in 21,000 sft have already been completed and fully commissioned.

Students and interns have performed 18,643 free dental procedures in different dental disciplines with patients of various nationalities during the academic year 2016-17.
