Through our partnership with the medical schools, as well as local and international charities, our programmes aim to improve the quality and range of teaching on offer at the Palestinian medical schools.

Our vision is for a future where Palestinian healthcare is self-sufficient, without the need for Palestinian doctors to train abroad or for patients to be referred for treatment away from home.

Postgraduate medical training in the UK

FQMS selects, funds and places specialist trainees in conjunction with local healthcare providers utilising the MTI Scheme and the ISTP, allowing doctors to upgrade their clinical expertise, so that they can improve the teaching and health care available in their field.


Accommodation For Medical Students On Clinical Placements

The lack of a university hospital at Al-Quds University means that medical students are spread across a wide area during their clinical placements. Medical students in their clinical years have to be distributed among many hospitals in Jerusalem and cities of West Bank, from Jenin in north to Hebron in south.

International Training Placements

Like medical schools throughout the world, every year senior medical students at all four Palestinian universities have the opportunity to do international training placements, also called electives, at hospitals across the globe.

Gaza bus

Gaza Bus Programme

The Islamic University of Gaza have a new campus outside of Gaza City, meaning that it costs students on average $10 per day to travel back and forth. We have part funded a service provided by a local bus company ($6,000 is our 50% contribution). This provides a service for 40 students per trip.

Professional Development

FQMS supports visiting lecturers and examiners, as well as students and faculty to attend courses and conferences abroad.



Bursaries, also known as student financial aid, are intended for talented students from all four medical schools, with higher than average scores and broad ability, who are also in extreme financial need.

Medical Equipment

Over the past few years, we have raised money to update essential equipment available at the university so that the teaching can remain at a high standard.


Undergraduate Scholarships

Through our partnership with the Madrinha Trust, we provide scholarships for undergraduate medical students in Palestine.
