OVERVIEW

Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) is a comprehensive, state-supported university located on the outskirts of Irbid, in northern Jordan, 70km north Amman, the capital city of Jordan. JUST was established in 1986 as an autonomous national institute of higher education with the main objective of producing outstanding professionals in specializations that match the needs of Jordan and the region.

In 2011, Jordan University of Science & Technology (JUST) has begun to make its mark in the World University Rankings which, in return, placed JUST at 401+ according to the World University Ranking System. JUST has been ranked 401+ according to the following indicators: academic reputation, reviews by recruiters who hire JUST graduates, faculty student ratio, citations of published research. In addition,   the university was ranked 71  in recruiting top quality international students.

UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

The Faculty of Medicine at JUST (FMJUST) houses 11 clinical departments and 5 basic science departments. The faculty and staff in each of these departments are dedicated to fulfilling all of the Faculty’s mission. Our faculty members are committed to teaching both the science and the art of medicine. Throughout the first three-years of our curriculum they integrate basic medical sciences through an organ system approach. During the last three years students develop their diagnostic and treatment competencies in a variety of supervised inpatient and outpatient settings.
