His Excellency Humaid Al Qutami, Director General of the DHA and Dr. Humaid Mjol Al Nuaimi, Director General of University of Sharjah signed the MoU on Thursday at the DHA headquarters in Dubai. 

The MoU aims to promote cooperation in medical training and enhance competencies of health personnel in medical, pharmacy, dentistry, nursing and other health specialties. It also aims to promote cooperation in organizing joint health-supporting programmes such as conferences, seminars and events and unifying efforts to spread the culture of innovation in society. 

Commenting on the MoU Al Qutami said that the cooperation with The University of Sharjah is an important opportunity to enhance the capabilities of its medical staff and to support the authority's direction towards achieving leadership in the field of medical research and specialized studies, as well as strengthening the innovation, knowledge and informatics structure.

He added that Sharjah University is one of the leading national scientific institutions, which has established itself regionally and globally as an advanced center for training future generations of medical students in various disciplines as well as being an important center in research, studies and development. 

He added that DHA is keen to strengthen its relations with all international academic and research institutions and that the authority also focusses on promoting and supporting medical innovation.

H.E. Dr. Hamid Mjouel Al Nuaimi, Director of Sharjah University, said that he is pleased to cooperate with the DHA. He said the MoU will help enable the University of Sharjah to contribute efficiently through this cooperation.
