Khatib indicated that 15 to 20 percent of students in the medical field leave the medicine and dentistry majors.

According to Khatib, the current unified admission policy is largely fair, but this should not prevent efforts to improve the university admission policy, he said, emphasizing that high school grades should not be the only criterion for admission, taking into account regional and international universities’ standards and students’ wishes and potentials.

Khatib said that the Higher Education Council formed a committee, made up of the deans of medicine and dentistry, and chaired by the president of Yarmouk University, to develop a vision for the preparatory year for the medical and dental specializations, that includes pharmacist, doctor of pharmacy and other human specialties later.
