Our elite team of professors and researchers have graduated from highly reputable international universities.

Status and respect in society

Doctors are seen as symbols of dignity, responsibility and service to the community. Members of the local community are aware of the hard work and sacrifices that a medical professional goes through to maintain standards. Therefore, doctors’ opinions regarding the welfare of the community are taken into consideration, as is their exemplary behavior and moral standing. This places additional responsibilities on doctors, but highlights the fact that medical professionals are  leaders of the local community.

Get involved in cutting-edge research

The end of your medical studies does not mean the end of your learning. The CMHS provides its students with the chance to participate in summer research work. This can be either in the college, with senior research professors, or overseas working in well-known international laboratories.

Opportunities to study abroad

The CMHS at UAEU offers students 4-8 week electives that involve studying abroad away from their home medical school. Most students use this opportunity to travel, to experience another culture, to take part in relief work and to see how medicine is practiced in other countries.
