Regardless of what happened in the original site with all the difficult circumstances, the institute continued to provide various scientific services on the alternative site in Kirkuk city. Despite all circumstances, the Institute opened the Department of Pathological Analyzes Techniques in 2015, which is one of the most important departments supporting the health sector. In addition, the basic approvals were obtained for the establishment of another medical department, the First Aid Department. In the same year, the evening study was developed at the institute in a number of its departments. The Institute continues to play an active and honorable role in leading the advanced scientific institutions in Kirkuk city and the Al-Hawija district as it ranked first at the level of the Northern Technical University in the scientific research published in the world’s most prestigious journals within the classification of Clarivate and (SCOPUS).
