Khalifa University is planning to offer a range of degrees within its College of Medicine and Health Sciences. It has already established a postgraduate Doctor of Medicine (MD) program, as well as a Pre-Medicine Bridge program to prepare students for the MD program.
The Pre-Medicine Bridge program is designed to provide courses to current students who have completed a Bachelor’s degree. The educational goals of the program are to prepare students for entry into Khalifa University’s Doctor of Medicine (MD) program.
The Pre-Medicine Bridge program consists of courses that are delivered by a lecturer in person or online. As each student attending the program will come with their unique skill set and knowledge, the courses are designed to fill gaps in information as well as develop reading, comprehension and math proficiencies. By developing these skills, the program will establish whether a candidate can demonstrate advanced knowledge, and in doing so, fulfill the requirements of entry into a postgraduate medical program. Students will be assessed using the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT®).
Entry into the Pre-Medicine Bridge program at Khalifa University will be based on the student’s performance at an interview and:
