PRESIDENT’S NOTE

Founder President
Board of Governors
Words of inspiration
What we think, what we know,
or what we believe, is in the end
of little consequence. The only
consequence is what we do.
I wish all our readers a Very Happy and A
Prosperous 2012. The beginning of a new
year is a great time to get your priorities
in order and to set goals for the next 12
months.
His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid
Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme
Council and Ruler of Ajman presented
certifcates to 59 graduates of MBBS and
BPT programs in the presence of His
Highness Sheikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al
Nuaimi, Crown Price of Ajman. The Guest
of Honor His Excellency Sheikh Nahayan
Bin Mubarak Al Nahayan, Minister for
Higher education and Scientifc Research
UAE, His Excellency Abdul Rahman Al
Owais, Acting Minister of Health and His
Excellency Humaid Mohammed Obeid Al
Qattami, Minister of Education graced the
eventful occasion.
Recently we have hosted many important
personalities at our campus. Prominent
among them were Mr. Oscar Fernandes
and Mr. Ramanath Rai, senior political
leaders from India.
We are pleased to inform that we have
been appointed as representatives for
Middle East and India region by QHA
Trent Accreditation, a leading hospital
accreditation company from United
Kingdom. We look forward to working
with hospitals in the region to help them
improve quality, reduce risk for patients
and offer services at affordable prices.
I wish to congratulate the third batch
of our faculty members who have
successfully completed their Graduate
Diploma in Health professions Education
program, offered by theMedical Education
Unit of the university.
New addition into our group will be the
GMC Hospital Dubai, which is expected
to be opened by the middle of this year.
It will be a teaching hospital, and the
highlight will be the Dental teaching
facility with more than 25 chairs. The
facility will also become a major medical
tourism destination.
I have been invited to speak at the
Economist’s Healthcare in the Gulf
Summit in Dubai on 28th of March, The
Africa Health in Johannesburg, South
Africa on 9th of May 2012 and the Leaders
in Healthcare conference in Dubai on
6th of June 2012. It has always been a
great experience sharing our challenges
and innovative approach to healthcare
education and services to international
experts. We are open to initiate dialogue
with international institutions who share
common goals and vision as that of ours.
We continue to organize conferences,
seminars, workshops every month and
we are happy to mention that our Health
Communications Division is planning to
host many more events in the months to
come. Finally, I wish to thank the Ministry
of Health, the Health authorities of Abu
Dhabi and Dubai for their continued
support and encouragement in hosting
these events.
I trust that this magazine will bring into
sharper focus the contributions that our
University makes in education, research,
healthcare and community outreach to
the entire state. I am sure we will continue
to be amazed by what we are collectively
capable of at Gulf Medical University.
Thanking you
