After a series of meetings and consultations between BDF officials and representatives from the Ministry of Health, it was agreed on the 16th of October 1993 that the BDF Hospital would offer the Certified Emergency Corpsman Program. By February of 1994, the training school, under the establishment of the Medical Support Group formally started the program with eleven (11) males and four (4) females comprising the pioneer batch. As a result of reorganization in 1996, the Field Medical Battalion took over the operational management of the school. In addition, the program was revised and consequently named Field Practical Nursing Program. In 1999, for the purpose of coordinating and unifying all training activities within the Medical Services, it was decided that the school should be placed under the organizational establishment of the Training and Development Directorate. One of the most outstanding highlights in the school’s history was the awarding of the ISO 9001-2000 certification in November of 2000. This exemplifies the school’s commitment to quality education. Since its humble beginning in the early nineties up to the present, the school has witnessed not only a gradual and steady growth in the number of students competently trained and graduated but also the introduction of new, quality, and demand-driven courses. As it journeys into the 21st century, the School of Royal Medical Services looks forward to meeting the challenges ahead with confidence and perseverance.
The School of Royal Medical Services is committed to continuously design, implement, and evaluate programs/ courses that are responsive to the needs of Bahrain Defence Force organization in the most efficient cost effective manner.
Recognizing the importance of developing human resources, the school of Royal Medical Services envisions itself to become the leading regional military institution dedicated to quality education.
