SCFHS accreditation now applies to all residency postgraduate training programs offered by MBRU
March 20, 2023: Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) has been granted full institutional accreditation by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) for four more years.
The renewed SCFHS accreditation now extends to all postgraduate residency and fellowship programs provided by the Deanship of Postgraduate Medical Education at MBRU. The training for the accredited programs will take place at Dubai Academic Health Corporation (DAHC) healthcare facilities, including Rashid Hospital, Dubai Hospital, Latifa Women & Children's Hospital, Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital, Hatta Hospital, Dubai Dental Hospital, and other primary care and specialized health centers. Training will also take place at Mediclinic hospitals, MBRU's clinical affiliate.
“With MBRU being part of DAHC, the scope for postgraduate medical training has expanded. Having a variety of public and private sector healthcare facilities has created further opportunities for those seeking specialty training,” said Professor Sulaiman Alemran, Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education at MBRU. “At MBRU, we strive to provide the highest quality of postgraduate training programs to satisfy the increasing need and demands of the region's young healthcare professionals. The University was awarded the SCFHS accreditation following a thorough evaluation by an expert committee that assessed the institution's academic structure, level of educational facilities, and faculty efficacy in providing SCFHS-approved programs. This recognition motivates us to develop more residency and specialty fellowship programs in the future, in association with local hospitals and healthcare institutions.”
