“Educating and Training human is a laborious process. Yet, it is a necessary process. We Shall for our part, spare no effort to provide opportunities for the training of Omanis at all levels of education.” His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said
[ From the Heart ]
OMSB sets high standards for post-graduate medical education of healthcare professionals, that will continuously improve the standards and the quality of healthcare in Oman

The coming stage requires much effort from our part to earn citizens’ trust through making every endeavor to provide a qualified and conscious cadre of Omani youths through education and practical training that H. M. Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, may Allah protect him, has attached a great attention to, saying “we live in the era of knowledge and witness its constant progress in all fields. This makes us most certain that knowledge and hard work are, together, our means to face the challenges of this era and to build a strong and flourished renaissance based on our Islamic and cultural values”. We are proud of the effort made by Oman Medical Specialty Board (OMSB) during the few years since its foundation to build Omani doctors through qualifying and training them to become specialized in any of the medical specialties. We also admire OMSB participation, with the other health institutions, in drawing a path full of ambitions and lofty goals to enhance the stature of health system and attain integration in provision of health services all around the Sultanate. The solidarity and cooperation we perceive between the different health institutions in training and qualifying Omani doctors and providing all the requirements needed to graduate them fulfills the thoughts of H. M. the Sultan of Oman, satisfies the ambitions of the people of Oman and earns their trust in highly qualified Omani doctors.

Dr. Ahmed AL-Saidi THE CHAIRMAN ,
Oman Medical Specialty Board


Oman Medical Specialty Board (OMSB) takes a great heed of training Omani doctors on research, probe, and finding solutions and new techniques in health care in order to enable them having effective contributions in the medical field. OMSB does not only graduate specialized doctors, but also makes a human who takes into consideration the psychological aspect in dealing with his patients. He also takes into consideration the other skills that make him a brother and leader in his environment, a contributor and an interactor with his country’s issues who always endeavor to develop and promote his knowledge. We have opened our minds to the world and we extended our hands to the other in order to benefit from his knowledge and experience, and to keep pace with the accelerating developments in the fields of medicine and science so that Omani doctors can absorb this modern knowledge, deploy it at work, and build their scientific personality accordingly. In OMSB, we do not consider graduation as being the end of the way, as we seek to communicate with our graduates through the Continuous Professional Development that boosts the serious beginning of doctors’ life in hospitals and with real cases.
