I am very happy to welcome you to our college website. It gives me great pleasure to lead the College of Medicine as I work with our faculty and students to bring the college to the forefront of medical schools in the region.
We build the most active academic medical center in the region and become a center of excellence in teaching, medical research and clinical training. We train students to be competitive, innovative, knowledgeable, passionate and caring physicians.
We implement a problem-based learning (PBL) system, which exposes students to clinical medicine early in their studies. We also encourage our students to be involved in clinical and basic research and expect them to excel not only as physicians but also as scientists with the ability to contribute to furthering our knowledge, particularly in disease-related fields relevant to our community.
His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, Ruler of Sharjah, and President of the University of Sharjah, and Professor Hamid M.K. Al Naimiy, Chancellor of the University, have made abundant resources available to the college so that we may continue the story of success that started in 2006.
We provide students from different nationalities with a warm accommodating environment. Furthermore, we strive to provide them with the necessary means to succeed. the college is engaged in several memoranda of understanding with various well-known international universities which include agreements to undertake faculty exchange, program collaboration and special arrangements to allow our students to complete their clinical and research elective courses off campus to gain diverse experiences.
Most of our graduates are currently in residency programs in and outside the UAE. We invite our graduates to keep in touch with our college and would like to inform them that we are in the process of establishing comprehensive alumni program and events. In addition, we advocate an open door policy and our main objective is to build trust between faculty members and students.
Please join us in our endeavors to make the College of Medicine recognized internationally.
