The Department of Internal Medicine at University of Jordan is a large, expanding department with a diverse staff working in dedicated teams to provide high quality work in an organized, effective and efficient manner through innovation, training, and education. The Department supports the faculty and enhances the missions of the Faculty of Medicine, the University and the Hospital.
The department provides services in teaching, training, research and patient care. We provide clinical service to our patients in the community, exceptional medical education for medical students and post graduate students. In addition we have programs for advanced training in most of subspecialties of internal medicine. We are committed to innovative research in clinical and other sciences which are in close relation to internal medicine, hoping that this will expand the frontiers of medical knowledge.
The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Infertility is considered one of the largest medical departments in the hospital, as it was established in its current independent form since 1979, after its separation from the General Surgery Department. Despite the professional practice of the mother's specialization (the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Infertility) with the latest medical sciences as the basis for the practice of specialization, the department has worked to develop many specialized units in line with scientific developments in research centers and advanced educational hospitals keeping pace and competition.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology includes ten full-time faculty members within the staff of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Jordan, with academic ranks available on the career ladder of the university faculty members. Two faculty members are on unpaid leave.
There is also a higher specialization program in the department, where there are 31 doctors with graded levels from the first year of specialization until the fifth.
This department includes several specialized divisions that provide distinguished medical services to Jordanian and Arab patients within the specialization of gynecology, obstetrics, and infertility. These units include:
The Division of General Practice for specialization in all its fields, which is the most common practice, as it employs the expertise of the members of the department to provide diagnostic, therapeutic, educational and research services, in a scientific, professional, participatory manner as a result of the exchange of experiences between the members of the department in cases that require this to draw up appropriate treatment plans under the title “The patient's life is a priority, therapeutic and curative". Working in this unit represents the basic structure for the specialization of gynecology, obstetrics, and infertility in all its aspects. It is the main feeder for sub-specialty units and contributes to the acquisition of distinguished surgical and therapeutic skills.
Curative and educational services are provided within a well-programmed program and in the units of departments distributed within the hospital, as follows:
The department performs many different gynecological surgeries, such as removal of uterine fibroids, hysterectomy, removal of cysts on the ovaries, removal of the ovaries (ovaries) if there is a medical need for that and treatment of ectopic pregnancy with various surgical methods by opening the abdomen.
Some of the consultants in the department perform hysteroscopy to correct congenital deformities in the uterus and also remove congenital barriers and adhesions, if any, and also remove polyps and fibers inside the uterus, following what modern medicine has reached.
Some consultants perform laparoscopy to remove an ectopic pregnancy, the cyst or cysts on the ovaries or ovaries, and remove some fibers according to their type, following what modern medicine has reached.
Gynecologic ontological surgery
The Department of Gynecological Oncology was established in 1998, as the policy of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
The University of Jordan Hospital and the College of Medicine compete with their educational and therapeutic services for advanced scientific edifices that have come to believe in the policy of moving away from the behavior of individual practice, especially with the development and ramifications of therapeutic services, and gynecological oncology surgery requires precise and specialized surgical and technical skills that are difficult to perform with opportunities for training and experience in a generalized manner as some believe, especially with the interference Its practical joints are with independent specializations. There are technical breaks that cannot be acquired without programmed training in specialized advanced centers after obtaining a certificate of specialization. Actual service has begun at the University of Jordan Hospital for gynecological oncology cases under the supervision of qualified consultants after obtaining a fellowship in gynecological oncology surgery from leading and competitive educational hospitals. In the mid-nineties of the last century, when the bulk of cases were diagnosed and treated directly, while the remaining part represented cases that were transferred from other colleagues and the therapeutic results added a new candle to lighting the tunnel of cancerous diseases.
Cancer tumor surgery combines its pillars with clearing the interdependence between experience and surgical skill, with the limits of determining therapeutic priorities that range from the surgical option to treatment options with chemical, radiological or hormonal drugs, and even the possibility of resorting to treatment with more than one treatment opportunity. The attending physician has the largest share in the decision and timing of use.
