The Faculty of Medicine was set up in order to mitigate the public health problems in southern Thailand and to solve medical personnel shortage problem. It was formally established in 1972 and enrolled the first batch of 35 medical students in 1973. Initially its temporary office was located in the Faculty of Engineering, the teaching was undertaken in the Faculty of Science and the practical clinical training was carried out in Hat Yai Hospital and Songkla Hospital. In March 1979, the first batch of 31 students was graduated.

Since the beginning, it has been envisaged that a large hospital be built on the campus to facilitate the teaching, research, training for medical personnel in various disciplines and for the provision of health-care to the general public. On August 26, 1976 the foundation stone of the hospital of the Faculty of Medicine was laid by His Majesty the King, and the name “ Songklanagarind Hospital” was later graciously bestowed upon it. The hospital was formally opened, in 1986. It is now capable of accommodating up to 635 in-patients.

The Faculty of Medicine consists of 13 departments, namely, Anesthesiology, Biomedical, Community Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedic Surgery and Physical Medicine, Otolaryngology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Radiology and Surgery.
