The faculty and administration at Saba University School of Medicine bring extensive experience and insight to the challenge of medical education.


All Saba faculty have an advanced medical and/or doctoral degree (MD, MBBS, PhD) with postgraduate training in a medical or academic specialty, as well as demonstrated experience in teaching and/or research.

In addition, unlike many medical schools, Saba’s faculty are full-time and devoted exclusively to their teaching mission. Our Basic Sciences students benefit from a 7:1 student-to-faculty ratio, meaning more focused attention from professors.
