Testimonials
Given the opportunity to be one of the first 53 students who graduated from UoS with no doubt contributed to the academic and professional success I am experiencing. Not only developed my clinical skills but also refined my scientific research comprehension, appreciation, and application. One of many outstanding professors I am very thankful for at the College of Medicine is Prof. Randa Mostafa, Head of Basic Medical Sciences Department. When I was an undergraduate and for 4 years, she went beyond of  being just an academic adviser. Today, I'm a Master's candidate at one of the top universities in North America because of her dedication  even after my graduation. With the research skills gained from her rich experience and mentor-ship, I was honored to be part of her research team to participate in many research projects which furnished my clinical and scientific research skills. This has been reflected on the MSc thesis progress and recently I was invited at the University of British Columbia to share my experience and the results of our national Emirati study on the symptoms of menopause that was published recently in Climartic, a leading peer-reviewed journal worldwide.

I completed my MBBS in UOS in 2013, and after finishing a year of internship in DHA, I am now an Emergency Medicine resident in SKMC, Abu Dhabi, and I owe it all to University of Sharjah. You had told us that our graduates did well in the 'outside world', but I don't think many of us realized how true that was until we ourselves came into the clinical setting. Throughout internship, upon answering where I graduated from, I always got positive responses of, "Oh, University of Sharjah graduates have excellent knowledge!" It was a bit surprising initially, but a wonderful feeling nonetheless. A similar exchange would take place regardless of the department I'd be rotating in. And now, fresh in residency, I'm happy to hear that things haven't changed. It fills me with pride to hear so many doctors praising my alma mater, and I don't think many of us realize how big an achievement that is, especially since compared to UAEU, GMU and DMCG, we are a much younger program. Of course, all the credit goes to our wonderful faculty, especially all the doctors in Qassimi, Kuwaiti, Baraha and Dhaid Hospitals. I don't think even they realize how much they have taught us. They should have a banquet held in their honor and awards handed out to them for their patience and drive to instill, not only knowledge, but professionalism, interpersonal skills and decision-making abilities as well. Having trained as an intern in DHA, I've seen how little attention is paid to the DMCG students, and I thank God every day that we underwent clinical training in MOH, where doctors happily entertained the presence of 5-6 confused-looking students occupying seats in morning meetings, crowding rooms during rounds, shadowing them throughout the day and at most times, slowing them down considerably with endless questions and eagerness to assist in procedures. I would like to name them all, but I'm afraid I'd never be able to forgive myself for even overlooking a single one, so I shall not take on this task, but Drs, if you're reading this, know that you may not remember me, but I don't think I'll ever forget any one of you. What you have done for each and every one of us is commendable, and deserves much more than we'll ever be able to give.

The visit to Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services was a new experience. We got to meet parents of students with disabilities, we interviewed them and explored their challenges and future prospects. We became aware of the important role that such a facility plays by immersing these unique people into the community. We also listened to the advices that those parents wished to convey to future doctors which included the desire to see a multidisciplinary and patient-centered approach.

I graduated in 2015 from the University of Sharjah. I can say that the 6 years I spent in the medical school were by far the best years of my life. The University of Sharjah was more than a home to me, the professors were always there for us and I will always owe my success and progress in my career to them. The journey started with basic medical sciences. We spent three years exploring through the different systems of the human body and that was the fun part of it. It was never boring because the method of teaching was system-based. This method made the learning journey fun and informative. We never had to study anatomy, physiology or even biochemistry in one bulk. The different disciplines were equally distributed amongst the different body systems. What made those years even more amusing is the fact that we had problem based learning sessions twice every week. We were divided into groups and were facilitated by a tutor and every week we discuss a new topic related to the problem of the week we were covering. This helped us develop our skills in a very constructive as well as effective manner. It helped us cultivate our communication and presentation skills. We had full access to all the journals and data bases through the years which made things easier. The university is committed to research at the highest standards. During our second year we were introduced to CBR (Community Based Research). This was a fascinating experience and I was so lucky to be exposed so early to the world of research. We had the privilege to learn all about research and statistics. We executed what we learnt by actually doing a full community based research as groups. It was one of the best experiences I ever had because I learnt early on all about research and the importance of community health in particular. I learnt how important it is for me as a student and a doctor to help the community with my research in solving pressing issues in the community and make a change in my society. The clinical years allowed me to shadow different fields in medicine, surgery, paediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynaecology. Throughout the clinical years we were allowed to communicate with patients, take history and physical examinations. We attended ward rounds and doctors meetings in the morning. We had on calls in the hospital. We were given sessions in the university that facilitated learning during each rotation. I truly enjoyed the clinical years because it helped me see what I want to be in the coming few years. It allowed me to get closer to my dream which is to help people and make a difference in this world. The experiences I was offered are indescribable. They made me more effective and confident person. All the qualifications and training I received through the years in the University of Sharjah was exactly what I need to start building my career as a doctor who would actually make a difference.

" My story is not the same like most of my other colleagues. I was initially planning to travel to Europe for my medical studies and had put lots of efforts to achieve that, but after obtaining a scholarship from the Government of UAE to study medicine at the newly established Medical College in University of Sharjah , I have soon realized that I have ended up at a college and environment where I always wanted to. University of Sharjah has offered me all the reasons not to imagine myself anywhere else. in the heart of Sharjah city, the cultural heritage hub of Arabs in the middle east, an extraordinary student-friendly campus, an exceptionally flexible and fully integrated curriculum, a culturally-sensitive and diverse medium with professionally motivated and always-accessible administration and faculties, the medical college at University of Sharjah has not only expanded my medical perspective as a future Physician but has also made me a composed and tolerant human being that is willing to serve and fit any society, anywhere. Anytime. The two most striking and invaluable educational tools of sharjah medical college are the students' early Clinical Exposure that encourages clinical reasoning from as early as the first year of medical studies, and the many club and social activities that challenges the traditional medical teaching and turns it into an enjoyable experience."

I chose to perform an elective clerkship in the University of Sharjah through GEMx agreement signed by my home university. This trip has been my first approach to the Arab and Islamic world. One of the first things I had to learn during this trip is the difference among the words we use in the west as synonyms: Arab, Islamic. The UAE is the best place to understand the differences because there are all of the examples living in. For example Arab is a person who comes from an Arabic speaking country ex. UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait ... etc and Islamic is something under the rules of Islam, and there are Islamic countries which are not Arab countries like Malaysia, Iran and Albania. So most of Arabic countries are Islamic, but not all Islamic countries are Arabic. The second stereotype in the west is about the Sharia which in my opinion the reason because many people think that Islam is an extremist religion, but most of the non Muslims do not see that most of times the punishments contained in this law are rarely performed in any of the Islamic countries and the education of the people let them avoid the acts that have these polemic punishments. Other polemic point among the stereotypes in Islam is the role of women in the society. In this matter I state Muslims are quite respectful with women. In western countries most of people have the idea that Islam suppress to the women and do not let them grow and develop properly. But the fact is in UAE women have rights opinion and an important role within the society. Half or more of the med students in the university of Sharjah are women and men are treated as equals and women have the same self confidence than their male pairs. Concerning to lectures and rotations I found the the College of Medicine of the University of Sharjah has a student based teaching and lectures with PBL have a positive impact on students's learning. I chose to take 2 electives during my training in the UoS Medicine with lectures in the college of medicine and rotation in the Al-Dhaid hospital in Sharjah and General Surgery in Al-Baraha hospital in Dubai. Mosque which is amazing and incredibly beautiful there we witnessed the Friday prayer which was a very significant experience, after that we stayed un the Yaz Water park. We saw also in Abu Dhabi some of its iconic buildings like the new WTC the Ferrari World and the works of the new Museé du Louvre.
