King Abdulaziz Medical City
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC) is the main medical center campus for the Saudi Arabia National Guard Health Affairs (NGHA) system and serves as the largest medical complex in Saudi Arabia. NGHA’s goal is to be recognized as the leading health care system in the Gulf through the provision of excellent patient care, state-of-the-art education and training, and cutting-edge research.

Located in Riyadh, KAMC is a health sciences center that includes colleges of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, applied medical sciences, and public health and informatics. The campus is expanding from its current 1500 inpatient beds to 2400 beds by 2014, including the construction/addition of a children’s hospital, neuroscience center, oncology center, transplant center, women’s center, and psychiatric and addiction institute. In addition, the Medical City is increasing and enhancing its ambulatory care services across its centers and clinics.

Successful candidates will participate in the further growth and development of an already established clinical pharmacy program by optimizing pharmacotherapy outcomes in a progressive, U.S.-style academic/team care environment. Opportunities are available to educate pharmacy students, medical students, and pharmacy residents. Research participation and publication is encouraged. Attendance at professional and scientific meetings for presenting research and other scholarly work is supported.

Qualified candidates must possess a Pharm.D. degree from an ACPE-accredited institution with a PGY2 residency, fellowship, or equivalent clinical experience. Board certification is preferred.

KAMC offers an excellent salary and benefits package. Salary includes tax-free earnings with an additional 15% cost-of-living allowance and free, furnished, and completely outfitted housing in a modern, state-of-the-art housing complex. Benefits include 30 days of annual leave, 11 holidays, an annual vacation with an airline ticket to your family home/point of origin, and a “midyear benefit” of an airline ticket to London or 10 extra days of leave; free medical care and emergency dental care; Internet access, a telephone code for personal, national, and international phone calls, and free cable TV with up to 100 channels; free sports and social club access; and bus transportation to/from KAMC and shopping malls and shopping districts. Contracts are 1 year in duration; a sign-on bonus equal to 1 month’s salary is awarded upon contract renewal.
