Faculty Profile     

     The Faculty of Medicine, Srinakharinwirot University, was established on June 16th, 1985, making it the 8th oldest medical school in Thailand to tackle the shortage of physicians in Thailand. The project was initiated as a joint venture between Srinakharinwirot University and the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration. The goal was to produce competent and skillful graduates by effectively utilizing existing manpower, equipment, and organization at that time. Since then, we have continually improved our standard of teaching to keep up with academic advancements and to suit the needs of the nation.

        The Faculty strives to produce doctors who are not merely doctors but also human beings. It is ourFaculty’s core value to produce outstanding practitioners. From the earliest days of students’education, we endeavor to instill a sense of public service and an appreciation for the human aspects of medicine – compassion, empathy, and communication skills as well as the scientificconcept of medicine.

       The Faculty has cooperated with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, The University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, by initiating the first international medical program, the Joint Medical Programme between the Srinakharinwirot University and the University of Nottingham, in Thailand. The Joint Programme is a unique program in which students initially attend 3-year basic medical sciences (B.Med.Sci.) degree at the University of Nottingham, then join the 3-year clinical study at the Faculty of Medicine Srinakharinwirot University to complete their Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree from Srinakharinwirot University. The course started enrolling the first batch of students in 2003, currently enrolling the 21st batch of students in 2023.
