OVERVIEW
Mosul  is a major city in northern Iraq. Located approximately 400 km (250 mi) north of Baghdad, Mosul stands on the west bank of the Tigris, opposite the ancient Assyrian city of Nineveh on the east bank. The metropolitan area has grown to encompass substantial areas on both the "Left Bank" (east side) and the "Right Bank" (west side), as the two banks are described by the locals compared to the flow direction of Tigris. The city of Mosul, meaning “the linking point" in Arabic, is one of the oldest cities in the world.  For millennia, it has been a strategic crossing and a bridge between north and south, east and west. Due to its strategic location, it became home to a large number of people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and religious beliefs. 
UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS
The College of Medicine in Mosul ranks second among the medical schools in Iraq in terms of their age and size. It was established on July 14, 1959. In September of that same year students began enrolling. In its first year, the Ministry of Health undertook to manage its work independently. Later in 1960, the college  joined the University of Baghdad and merged with it for seven consecutive years. Then on the first of April 1967, it became one of the colleges of the University of Mosul.
