DHCC unveils new identity of its first dental college

DUBAI, February 16, 2015

The Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), a leading healthcare free zone in the emirate, has revealed the new identity of the Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine (HBMCDM), formerly the Dubai College of Dental Medicine.

This was announced ahead of the 19th edition of the UAE International Dental Conference and Arab Dental Exhibition (AEEDC), which will run from February 17 to 19 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The HBMCDM is the first college established under Dubai Healthcare City’s first medical university, the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBR-UMHS).

It promotes an integrated learning environment through its Dubai Dental Clinic and through DHCC’s medical education entities under the Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center (MBR-AMC).

Dr Raja Al Gurg, vice chairperson of DHCC, said: “Education is a key pillar supporting our nation’s sustainable growth and knowledge-based economy. Medical education entities will help improve clinical performance that will, ultimately, drive excellence within the healthcare system.”

The college offers six postgraduate programmes, accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) in collaboration with the UK-based Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd).  As of January 2015, 60 residents were enrolled.

Professor Sehamuddin Galadari, chairman of the College of Dental Medicine, said: “We believe that the healthcare workforce in the UAE needs the right tools to be flexible and to be responsive to population health needs, workforce demands and growing emphasis on specialisation.

“With the establishment of the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences and its Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine, we are accelerating progress in medical education and training.” - TradeArabia News Service
