We welcome you in the city of Sohar, a historical Capital of Oman, and one of its oldest ports! Sohar is a peaceful costal city just 200 km away from the Capital City of Muscat, which is also the birthplace of the legendary mythical sailor: The Sinbad! Re-emerging as the new Industrial Hub of Oman, Sohar is a growing city connecting history to modern day, welcoming multicultural interactions with its generous and warm-hearted people. It is home to the country’s second medical school that hosts students from various nationalities, and a Hospital that covers a population of roughly 721,000 people. Our LC currently accepts exchange students in the Summer Months, but despite the hot climate in Oman, Sohar maintains its weather on the cooler side of the scale compared to most areas of the country. With a dedicated team, we welcome you again and are looking forward to have you here!
The home institute of our LC is Oman Medical College, the 2nd Medical school in the country. It is in Academic Affiliation with West Virginia University School of Medicine, USA. The affiliated Hospital at which clinical Training takes place is Sohar Hospital, a Secondary Care Hospital serving as the Regional Hospital and covering a population of roughly 721,000 people.
The College and Hospital are both a walking distance away from the Off-Campus Lodgings. Despite that, the LC will provide daily transportation from the College to the Hospital and back. Incomings will be notified about the exact timings and details upon arrival.
For other needs, transportation will be always provided by the LC. Our team will always be available to provide support as best as they can in-case of any additional transportation needs.
