I am proud to welcome you to Ajman University’s College of Medicine (AUCOM) and the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) program. After working hard to bring this new College to life, I’m happy to report that we are ready for our first batch of cohorts.
We are offering a very innovative MBBS program that borrows from the best aspects of internationally recognized medical education models. Our balanced and cutting-edge curriculum is aimed at producing medical graduates who will be highly competitive in terms of skills and competence.
Our program utilizes modern technology to deliver an integrated systems-based spiral curriculum with both horizontal and vertical integration. As our students progress through the curriculum toward gradation, they will continually revisit previous studies at increasingly higher levels of complexity and clinical content. We call this our “common-sense curriculum.”
For clinical training, we are proud to have partnered with the Sheikh Khalifa Medical City Ajman – under management of a Swedish healthcare management firm – and the very modern Amina Hospital located in the heart of downtown Ajman. For ambulatory care training, we are partnering with a number of specialist outpatient facilities as well as MOH health centers in Ajman.
We have implemented a rigorous student selection process to ensure that those who are admitted will have a very good chance of succeeding. Also, we are recruiting highly experienced and motivated faculty who will not only provide first-rate teaching and research, but will also nurture and inspire the young minds committed to our care. Our first cohort of 50 students commencing their studies in the Fall of 2018 should look forward to an academically challenging but highly rewarding experience at AUCOM.
