faculty of Allied Medical Sciences was firstly established as the department of
biological sciences in 1995. Due to our belief in the importance of medical
technology specialists and medical lab technicians in supporting the medical
system in Jordan and to facilitate an accurate diagnosis for diseases, the
department of Biological Sciences was evolved to the faculty of Allied Medical
Sciences in 1997 to be a valuable addition to Zarqa University’s faculties. This
Faculty gained general and special accreditation and it contains five
departments (Medical Laboratory, Applied Speech
Language Pathology and Audiology, Diet Therapy Technology and Dietetics,
Medical Radiologic Technologies, and Physical Therapy). In addition, the
postgraduate program in the field of medical laboratory has been established in
2022, in response to an urgent need for Jordanian society and the desire of
thousands of Jordanian students to achieve their dream of completing their
postgraduate studies (Masters) in the field of Medical Laboratory.
main purpose of the faculty was to provide the labor market in Jordan and
Arabic World with skilled, well-trained young specialists in the field of Medical
Laboratory, Applied Speech Language Pathology and Audiology, Diet Therapy
Technology and Dietetics, Medical Radiologic Technologies, and Physical Therapy.
The faculty also aimed to provide graduates with competencies who are able to
perform their duties in this sector with maximum efficiency.
achieve these aims, the faculty has attracted a number of highly-qualified and
highly-experienced staff from different fields of Medical Laboratory, Applied
Speech Language Pathology and Audiology, Diet Therapy Technology and Dietetics,

University Hearing and Speech Clinics), where students undergo the necessary
training to qualify them for practical life.
