(16 February 2015)


Ahead of the 19th edition of the UAE International Dental Conference and Arab Dental Exhibition – AEEDC, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), the world’s largest healthcare free zone, today announced the new identity of the Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine (HBMCDM), formerly the Dubai College of Dental Medicine. The college is under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.

The Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine is the first college established under Dubai Healthcare City’s first medical university, the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBR-UMHS). It promotes an integrated learning environment through its Dubai Dental Clinic and through DHCC’s medical education entities under the Mohammed Bin Rashid Academic Medical Center (MBR-AMC).

“Education is a key pillar supporting our nation’s sustainable growth and knowledge-based economy,” said HE Dr Raja Al Gurg, Vice-Chairperson of Dubai Healthcare City Authority. “Medical education entities will help improve clinical performance that will, ultimately, drive excellence within the healthcare system.”

The College offers six postgraduate programmes, accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MOHESR) in collaboration with the UK-based Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCSEd).  As of January 2015, 60 residents were enrolled.

“We believe that the healthcare workforce in the UAE needs the right tools to be flexible and to be responsive to population health needs, workforce demands and growing emphasis on specialization,” said Professor Sehamuddin Galadari, Chairman, Board of Directors of the College of Dental Medicine. “With the establishment of the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences and its Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine, we are accelerating progress in medical education and training.”

“The Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medical and Health Sciences is a landmark project for DHCC,”

said Dr Amer Ahmad Sharif, Managing Director – Education, DHCC. “We are making every effort to raise the standards of [medical] educational and to promote patient safety through innovation and training. As the University’s first college, the Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine addresses the gap in specialized dental medicine.”

“The Hamdan Bin Mohammed College of Dental Medicine caters to international, GCC and UAE residents who seek specialization,” said Professor David Wray, Dean of the HBMCDM. “Through simulation training and access to world-class specialists, our residents graduate having mastered the most-cutting edge procedures in dental medicine.”

In January 2015, DHCC announced its second college under the MBR-UMHS - the College of Medicine.
