The student body of the LAU Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine comprises more than 230 medical students, distributed across the Med-I through Med-IV years. This diverse group of women and men hails not only from Lebanon, but also from other parts of the MENA region and North America. While most students enter the school of medicine with an undergraduate degree in biology, an increasing number have completed a major or minor in a variety of subjects such as chemistry, bioinformatics, psychology, or the arts. Prospective students wishing to apply to the school of medicine are invited to visit our admissions page.
The school of medicine is deeply committed to the principles of LAU’s mission: “student centeredness” and “education of the whole person”. The Office of Student Affairs offers a range of support services and guidance to our medical students. These include academic, career and personal counseling, orientation to student life, and services provided in coordination with other units at the university.
The school of medicine encourages volunteer and student-run activities through organizations like the LAU Medical Students Association (MSA) and the Lebanese Medical Students International Committee (LeMSIC). Our students are also welcome to participate in any of greater LAU’s wide array of student clubs and activities. Opportunities abound for engaging in social, educational, and charitable events - just take a look!
