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.

In pursuit of the memorandum of agreement (MOU), Ewha University is grateful to have the opportunity to provide music therapy services to Sharjah Center for Humanitarian Services (SCHS) with the support of Sheikha Jameela Al-Qasimi and her director assistant Khadeja Bamakhrama who is the project manager for music therapy at SCHS. Also thanks to Professor Randa Mostafa , Head of Basic Medical Sciences Department , College of Medicine, University of Sharjah, for facilitating this project. Our first music therapy internship in 2014 has called for successful launching of music therapy at SCHS. The following second and third internship added excellence to the quality benefitting the children of SCHS. With this successful outcomes and awaiting the fourth music therapy internship this year, we hope to establish essential music therapy education and training curriculum at the University of Sharjah, Medical College as well.
