Dr. John Rock said: “As the first Abu Dhabi medical school to offer the four-year MD program in the UAE, the Khalifa University College of Medicine and Health Sciences aims to deliver world-class education, while actively involved in knowledge-sharing forums such as Arab Health Congress. We offer unparalleled expertise through our 20 academic departments, and we firmly believe participating in Arab Health will not only raise the profile of our institution among the healthcare sector stakeholders, regionally and globally, but will also help showcase the quality of medical education that is available in the UAE.”

The College has also developed an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) and Simulation Center, which is designed to test clinical skill performance. The program provides a hands-on real-world approach to learning and assessment, while serving hospital residency programs, military training units, and other medical schools in the UAE.

The College of Medicine and Health Sciences aims to expand its research portfolio in medicine and health sciences, which currently includes medical genetics, genome sciences, biomaterials for Nano medicine, cellular biomechanics, bio-robotics, tissue regeneration, and bioinformatics. The University is dedicated to graduating professionals who will contribute to the UAE’s healthcare ecosystem through employing innovative educational strategies that leverage its position as a world-class science and technology institution.

The College of Medicine and Health Sciences is the first 4X4 allopathic LCME-comparable (Liaison Committee on Medical Education), post-baccalaureate medical college, which prepares its students for residency programs in the US and Canada.
