Dubai, April 6, 2008
Harvard Medical School Dubai Centre (HMSDC) Institute for Postgraduate Education and Research conducted an innovative Practi-Med programme in Dubai on latest developments in the diagnosis and management of pediatric disorders as part of its Continuing Medical Education (CME) initiative.
HMSDC is a member of Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Academic Medical Centre and the programme was conducted in collaboration with Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), a member of Tatweer.
Held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the CME ‘Practi-Med: Pediatrics’ conference was designed for primary care physicians, pediatricians, nutritionists, psychologists, endocrinologists, pediatric nephrologists, and other pediatric and healthcare professionals as well as medical students.
Participants received certificates of attendance from Harvard Medical School Dubai Centre and were awarded a maximum of 13 CME credit hours.
“Through partnering with HMSDC, we have made considerable progress in extending the reach of world-class education to healthcare professionals in the region. Our objective is to equip medical practitioners with latest skills and technology updates and enable them to offer a vastly enhanced holistic treatment,” said chief academic officer Dr Robert L Thurer.
HMSDC is a joint initiative of Harvard Medical International (HMI) and DHCC. The CME programmes, led by senior Harvard Medical School faculty, are an integral part of its endeavour to develop DHCC into a centre of excellence for healthcare delivery, education and research. – TradeArabia News Service
