​The Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences​

The Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences (FMHS) was opened in May 1984 and its first doctors graduated in 1993.​​​

Acknowledged in 1994 by the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom, FMHS strives to produce Emirate doctors educated to the highest international standards and prepared for advanced graduate training in all fields of medicine. These medical graduates will help to promote quality public health, school health and preventive medicine, and ensure that individual patient care is delivered within ever improving systems of healthcare. They will pave the way for less dependence on professional workforces from other countries and will provide knowledgeable, skilled, sympathetic and cost-effective healthcare for all UAE residents.

 
The FMHS fully appreciates the importance of peer-reviewed scholarships and competitive research, and it has an impressive record in establishing productive research programmes. FMHS strives to develop high-quality medical education at all levels, to conduct innovative, relevant and competitive medical research, and to have a positive impact on the public health and clinical care systems.

 
Besides preparing new doctors, the FMHS also works with the Emirates Medical Association, the Ministry of Health, The Health Authority for Abu Dhabi, Military Medicine and other organizations to improve the performance of healthcare professionals in the Emirates. Direct patient care and laboratory services are also provided by faculty members.
