Department of Surgery

Overview

Faculty members in the Department have now increased from four (1999) to ten currently, five of whom are UAE nationals and one Teaching Assistant training overseas, completed residency training in Canada and is undertaking a 3 years fellowship program in robotic and Hepatobiliary pancreatic surgery at Cleveland clinic, Ohio. The faculty specialties are general surgery (3 faculty), plastic surgery (1 faculty), Vascular surgery (1 faculty), Ear nose & throat (1 faculty), Ophthalmology (1 faculty), Gastrointestinal surgery (1 faculty), Urology (1 faculty), Trauma surgeon (1 faculty), and Orthopedic (1 Faculty).

Clinical & Community Services

Professor Branicki was, by invitation, the Interim Head (March 2013 to June 2015) of the Surgical Institute at Al Ain Hospital where Drs A l- Ali, AlMahmoud and Mousa also practice. In addition, Prof Branicki, Prof Hammad, and Dr Al Fardan have also provided services at Tawam Hospital. Currently, Dr Mousa has very busy clinical commitments, being a leading figure in the UAE in the field of Endocrine surgery. The late Assoc Prof Torab established a service for weight reduction (bariatric surgery) in Al Ain in 2002 and was leading regional authority in the field.

Since 2010 Prof Branicki has been the Research Grant Coordinator for countrywide activity of the Terry Fox Foundation for Cancer Research, with oversight of 49 new grants totaling more than ten million AED which have since been awarded from donations raised by Terry Fox Runs in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah. Professor Branicki participates at each Run and addresses assembled runners at the start of each Run as to the how funds raised are being utilized for various cancer research projects in the UAE.

Dr Ali Jawas played a major role as Program Director of the General Surgical Residency training Program Through multiple collaborative works the general surgery program was started with one program and four site of training including Tawam, Al Ain, Al Mafraq and SKMC hospitals. This was subsequently relinquished, the Health Authority assuming responsibility for training. He continued as an active Member of the General Surgery Residency Program Advisory Committee and Program Evaluation Committee (ACGME accredited program) being involved in the selection of residents at interview processes, development of residency academic teaching and clinical training. Moreover, Dr Jawas is the General Coordinator and Examinations Officer for the Arab Board General Surgery Exam in the United Arab Emirates, involved in organizing written examinations and participating in the clinical examinations.

In May 2017 Professor Fikri Abu-Zidan was asked to chair the UAE University Human Research Ethics Committee so as to address the concerns and problems encountered regarding running this committee. He managed to solve all encountered problems within 12 months. This required major administrative effort which included 1. Train the Committee Coordinator on management skills, 2. Restructure the Committee, 3. Refine the process by defining the regulations, revising the applications, making a flowchart for the process and developing a checklist and testing it in real life, 4. Educate the Committee members, hospitals Research Ethics Committee members, and PhD students about the regulations, process and procedures of our Committee, and 5. Completed the process for all delayed applications. The review process was of a high standard and included 2-3 reviews for each application which improved the research design of the applications. The Department of Surgery is proud of this major achievement.

The Department has organized numerous of CME/CPD activities including an International Surgical Conference with more than 600 delegates held in Abu Dhabi in October 2003. Prof. Branicki also chaired the Organizing Committee for a highly successful International Conference – Recent Advances in Clinical Oncology Conference which took place in February 2007. The meeting was organized by the Oncology Research Group with 31 International Overseas Faculty from Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan, Korea, the UK, the USA and regionally from Saudi Arabia. Sixteen UAE based speakers also participated and the meeting attracted more than 1000 delegates from around the world. The Proceedings of the meeting (Eds: Prof. Branicki, Dr. Saad Aswad, the Late Dr. Fawaz Torab, Prof. Abdu Adem) were published in a volume of the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences (Vol 1138).

The Trauma Group chaired by Prof. Fikri Abu-Zidan organized two international Conferences entitled ‘Trauma Management, Critical Care and Prevention in Al-Ain on February 2009 and 2011. The Conference was an initiative of the Trauma Group at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS), United Arab Emirates University in association with Tawam Hospital in affiliation with Johns Hopkins Medicine, Al Ain Hospital previously managed by the Medical University of Vienna and VaMed, General Health Authority for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Hamdan Awards for excellence in Medical Sciences.

In April 2004 the Department, led by Prof Branicki, hosted inaugural back to back Provider and Instructor courses in the UAE for Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), a training program of the American College of surgeons. Four invited Faculty and staff from the USA and one from Canada participated in the teaching and Provider courses. These courses are training Emirati graduates and others in trauma care and will help reduce the burden of disabling illness and mortality from motor vehicle crashes in particular. In March 2008 the FMHS was the site for inauguration of the Advanced Trauma Provider Course for Nurses (ATCN) in the UAE, followed by an ATCN Instructor course. Professor Branicki has been an Instructor on 92 of these three day courses held at weekends (Thu pm, Fri am, pm and Sat am) and has been the Couse Director for most of these. Prof Abu Fidan, and Drs Jawas and, more recently, Dr Mousa have participated as Instructors.

Teaching

The Department makes substantial contributions to both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education Programs.

The Department is actively involved in the Preclinical Sciences Course (PSC) teaching programs involving Problem Based Learning, didactic teaching and clinical skills training. Prof Branicki is the Coordinator (teaching and assessment) for two of the nine clinical skills training modules in the PSC which are being taught and examined in summative assessments by Faculty surgeons and adjunct title holders at Al Ain and Tawam Hospitals. For five years Prof Branicki was Chair of the Policy and Review Committee and when this amalgamated with the Undergraduate Management Committee to form the Undergraduate Medical Curriculum Committee (UMCC) he chaired the combine d Committee for a further five years.
The Department is heavily involved in teaching activities for undergraduates in the Junior (JSC) and Senior (SSC) Surgical Clerkships each of which is held five times a year. The JSC is an 8 week rotation in the surgical disciplines of General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Urology, Vascular Surgery and Anaesthesia. The Senior Surgical Clerkship comprises General Surgery (4 weeks). The surgical Specialty Clerkship comprises Ophthalmology (2 weeks) and Otorhinolaryngology (2 weeks). Teaching for students also takes place during active clinical activities as some members of the Department have hospital clinics and 'on call' activities throughout the academic year. Students are usually taught on patients being cared for by department members who are the admitting doctor providing care. Summative assessments are undertaken at the end of clerkship and the assessment involves a written (MCQ) paper produced by the Department, a National Board Medical Examination (NBME) from the USA, an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) in the Simulation and Training Center at CMHS, bedside clinical examinations, General Surgery and Orthopaedics, students led presentation in the hospital as well as tutor assessments of activity and case write-ups.

Regarding postgraduate training, a local General Surgical Residency Training Program received Arab Board accreditation in 2005. This program, initiated by the CMHS, subsequently came under the auspices of the Health Authority, Abu Dhabi, in 2008. Residents in training rotate for experience between Al Ain Hospital, Mafraq Hospital, Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) and Tawam Hospital. The program received American Council for Graduate Education-International (ACGME-1) accreditation in June 2013. The Resident Education Committee and the Program Evaluation Committee meet regularly at one of the four hospitals. In 2010 Prof Branicki initiated in the Abi Dhabi Emirate, the only Multiple Site (Al Ain Hospital, Tawam Hospital, Mafraq Hospital and Sheikh Khalifa Medical Center) single Residency Program in General Surgery, under the auspices of Postgraduate Education Committee at CMHS. Subsequently; Residency training in Urology and Ophthalmology were established.
In November 2013, Department of Surgery, at the initiative of Prof Branicki hosted the Joint inaugural Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship examination, which was the first to be held outside the United Kingdom. Surgeons were examined at CMHS, Al AIin and Tawan Hospita, with four examiners from each of the four Royal Colleges (Edinburgh, England, Glasgow) and Ireland (Dublin). Subsequently, Prof Branicki has been an Examiner for four years.
In terms of training, trauma is the leading cause of death between the age of 1 and 44, in the Abu Dhabi emirate, and much effort has been expended in training Residents and graduates in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Courses. Prof Branicki, Course Director has taught 92 of these three days courses since their introduction to the UAE in 2004. Department members have also participated as Instructors in teaching the course with the assistance of Instructors from the hospitals. The Department introduced at CMHS Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses in 2008 and both these courses run three or four times annually. Prof Abu-Zidan is a leading international authority on ultrasound training and has conducted numerous Focused Assessment Sonography in Trauma (FAST), Critical Care Ultrasound, Abdominal Emergency Ultrasound courses in the UAE and overseas. The Late Assoc Prof Torab established a Clinical Skills Training Center in Laparoscopic Surgery at CMHS and was the Director of numerous courses involving bench top simulation and operative training of surgeons. Department members have also had significant roles in Vascular Access Courses (Dr Jawas).
