Batterjee Medical College for Science and Technology (BMC) recently celebrated the graduation of its fourth group of students.

The event was held under the auspices of Sobhi Batterjee, chairman of the board of trustees, and in the presence of parents and other guests at Sheikh Abdul Jalil Batterjee Auditorium on the BMC campus.

The ceremony began with the national anthem, recitation of verses from the Holy Qur’an, and a visual presentation about the college and its programs. Batterjee welcomed the attendees and congratulated the graduates.

“You are the ambassadors of the BMC in the local and global community, and are going to represent your college in the labor market.

“We are confident that you are going to lead wonderful lives filled with achievements and successes,” he said. He also announced that the BMC would soon become Batterjee Medical University for Science and Technology and increase its capacity to accommodate more students, at a cost of SR500 million.

He said three branches would soon be launched in various regions of the Kingdom. In addition, the college will offer new majors starting from next year including respiratory therapy and occupational therapy.

He said this success would not have been achieved without the support of the government under the leadership of King Salman, the crown prince, deputy crown prince and Ministry of Education.

Hassan Shaibah, BMC’s dean, said this was the first year that dentists graduated. This year’s group included into 102 medical, 65 dentistry, 56 pharmacy, 48 physical therapy, 14 radiology, 48 nursing and 19 health administration graduates.

“Graduates this year and previous years are the fruits of our continuous efforts and hard work to build energetic youth armed with a high-quality education in order to contribute to the wellbeing of their beloved country.”

Khalid Batterjee, vice chairman of the board, said that the Batterjee Education & Training Academy (BETA) was founded to ensure quality education and meet Saudization targets.

Several graduates said they were happy and honored to have graduated from the BMC and were looking forward to assisting in the country’s development.
