'I'm really happy I chose JABSOM. Here, we get a training that's not only clinically and academically rigorous, but also focuses on making sure their students can live this career out in the best way.'
'The type of doctor that JABSOM wants to put forward are people who are proactive and leaders but have humility and compassion to meet their patients on a level-playing field.'
