Michel  porter forces :

Threat of new entrance : *

The definition of threat of new entrance is new entrance to an
industry brings new capacity , desire to gain market share and substantial
resource .

 No universities without students and each university
is trying to catch the attention of them and reaching the full capacity , by
that gaining the highest portion of students in Jeddah under their learning ward
. There are many other universities in Jeddah other than king abdulaziz university
and  number of them are new established
such as Jeddah university competing with KAU . The existence of KAU is long also
it is renown and popular , its certificate is accredited , most important point
is its vision in the medical factually *To be the Benchmark for
Medical Academic Excellence in the Middle East *, which gives the medical factuality in KAU
advantages comparing to any other existence or new  university . Last point is the medical faculty’s
research ,  laboratory and all materials
, equipment needed in KAU is financed by government which makes difficult for
new entrance to join the industry ( capital requirement ) entrance barriers  .

*Threat of substitute products :

The definition of threat of substitute products is the products
that appears to be different but can satisfy the same needs as other product .

In this case all medical faculties in all universities
appears similar by presenting basic medical learning materials to students but
any university or collage needs to be developed and  enhance the learning materials , medical equipment
, researches  ets to be sustainable .
such , areas of improvement (web site from KAU) :


– lack English skill among enrolled students

– the incentive for scientific research is – near to
the ground .

– great number of student with low capacity and insufficiency of
training facilities in university hospitals .

– low monitor and track fist year for medical
student .

– big medical department but not ready with
staff members .  

 as we mentioned
 before medical university in KAU is been
financed by the government which is advantage to sustain  . One of the Basic values of medical faculty
in KAU is sustainability *Maintaining the continuity of
institutional, educational, research, economical, and environmental gains *


– the
awareness of the society for education .

– the government finance for
high quality level of education and to sustain .

– the geographic location of
the university

– the well-built university

– the necessitate in public
and privet hospitals for consultant physicians .


Threats or challenges :

staff is complicated

– development of other medical

– financial resources is inadequate

– external funding and financing 
is declining  for scientific
