Welcome to the Department of Allied Medical Sciences at Jordan University of Science and Technology. Our department offers the bachelor degree in 3 different disciplines of allied medical sciences; radiologic technology, optometry, and paramedics.
The roles of radiography and imaging technologies such as MRI, CT and nuclear medicine have been developing rapidly over the last years. For example, imaging-guided interventions have replaced conventional surgical procedures. Optometry or vision science is critical for patient eye care. It provides the required examinations and treatments for different eye diseases such as ocular inflammation, retinal disease, and strabismus. Paramedic or emergency services are other important aspects of clinical sciences that deal with saving lives and disaster management.
Our department is well established with a range of training labs and equipment. Our teaching staff is well recognized and qualified from world leading universities (from the USA, UK, and Australia) in the fields of radiology, optometry, and paramedics. The curriculum of our programs is versatile and comprehensive in terms of courses and clinical training. To ensure the quality of our graduates, and as part of our programs, students undergo clinical practice and field training in different hospitals.
