Muhakat – inspiring young minds


SEHA's Muhakat program is an Emiratization initiative, offering high school and university students practical experience of different roles within the healthcare sector, encouraging talented young nationals to experience such fields and increase the number of UAE nationals working in the medical professions.


The initiative was launched in 2012 and attracted about 200 students from high schools and universities, arranging for them to visit SEHA facilities and be introduced to services such as Pharmacy, Laboratory, and Emergency.


Muhakat now draws about 500 Emirati students every year from almost 30 schools, helping them to determine their future careers based on practical experience. The program is open to pupils from ninth grade to high school, and to students from colleges and universities in Abu Dhabi.
