Chair's Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Basic Medical Sciences (BMS) at the University of Sharjah (UOS) website. Although we are a young department in the Medical College (since 2006) at a relatively young University (established in 1997), we are growing steadily fast with no limit to our ambitions. BMS-UOS is the academic home for an excellent group of faculty with diverse backgrounds and expertise. Our unifying characteristics are in embracing challenges and pursuing excellence in medical education, cutting-edge biomedical and clinical research, and serving our local national and international community.

Our faculty teaches in both undergraduate and postgraduate medical programs. The undergraduate medical program at UOS is a hybrid PBL (Problem Based Learning) format in an integrated, competencies driven, student and patient centered curriculum.  The postgraduate program includes both Master and PhD tracks in biomedical and molecular medicine. The BMS faculty also actively participates in curriculum development as well as providing leadership roles in the assessment process of the College. We are passionate about conducting educational scholarship and relevant forefront educational research to reinforce the development and progression of the educational mission of the Medical College. 

Our diverse faculty, along with others members in the Clinical Departments, Sharjah Institute of Medical Research Centre (SIMR) and the University Hospital of Sharjah (UHS), creates a unique environment to perform cutting-edge collaborative and interdisciplinary research aimed at investigating fundamental biomedical and translational research questions and finding solutions to challenges in cancer, diabetes mellitus, immunological, infectious and cardiovascular diseases. We provide our students with a full range of opportunities to be the world class doctors, leaders and biomedical scientists. Our department is committed not only to teaching, research and services but also to supporting our staff and students by actively promoting a family friendly work environment, equal opportunity and career development.

We hope you will enjoy exploring our site and we welcome you to visit our Department.
