Corniche Hospital recognizes new graduates



4218Abu Dhabi, 30th March 2013: A special graduation ceremony to honor two trainees of the Fetal Medicine Advanced Training Skills Module (ATSM) program at Corniche Hospital was held at Abu Dhabi’s St Regis Hotel, Saadiyat Island.

Dr. Aqeela Mustafa and Dr. Fareeda Jahangir, specialists in obstetrics and gynaecology at Corniche Hospital, have successfully completed the hospital’s training program, which included a rigorous 4-week rotation in the United Kingdom. In 2010, Corniche was the first facility outside of the UK to be accredited by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and authorized to provide advanced training in maternal medicine. The current trainee in post is Dr Rasha Al Zaabi, the first UAE national to have graduated from Corniche Hospital’s ATSM training in Maternal /Obstetric medicine last year.

“In a country where the rate of genetic disorders is high and physicians who are subspecialized in the field of fetal medicine are in high demand, this internationally-recognized training at a local level is crucial,” said Dr. Mariam Al Mazrouei, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Corniche Hospital. “The Fetal Medicine ATSM is a vital component in our quest to elevate the standards of maternal and newborn health care services in the UAE and the region. We are very proud to know that our graduates are contributing to that process.”

Royal College recognition allows Corniche Hospital to offer the ATSM in Fetal Medicine to the medical community in the UAE as part of a postgraduate training program in obstetrics and gynecology. These modules have been designed to provide trainees with the increasingly advanced subspecialty skills required for independent practice. Physicians undertaking postgraduate training in obstetrics and gynecology in the UK, for instance, must complete a minimum of two ATSMs in order to obtain a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in obstetrics and gynecology.

Corniche Hospital’s commitment to continuous medical education for local health care providers has earned the hospital recognition from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education International LLC (ACGME-I). The UAE, represented by SEHA, is only the second country outside of the United States to have its hospitals and residency programmes accredited by this body.

The 299-bed Corniche Hospital, the largest maternity and neonatal healthcare facility in the UAE, is managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine International and is part of the SEHA Health System owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company PJSC (SEHA).

QS World University Ranking recognizes AUS as one of the world’s Top 500 Universities


2189American University of Sharjah (AUS) today entered into the ranks of the world’s top 500 universities for the first time according to London-based Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), one of the world’s most trusted university rankings. Of more than 2,500 global institutions considered, AUS was ranked in the top 401-450 bracket for 2012-2013, a substantial climb from last year’s 601+ bracket, according to QS World University Rankings 2012/2013 which was published.

In the Middle East, 26 universities made the QS World University ranking for 2012-2013. AUS is one of only two in the UAE ranked in the top 500. The QS World University Rankings evaluates universities based on academic reputation, employer reputation, citations per faculty, faculty student ration, and proportions of international students and international faculty.

Based on the research, AUS scored high in academic reputation and employer reputation, placing it amongst the top 301 universities in the world. AUS also achieved a score of 82 per cent in international students and more than 99 per cent in international faculty. In addition, with 1,069 papers and 1,908 citations of published researches as well as several registered patents, AUS has rapidly become an internationally acclaimed institution, despite being young in age.

Expressing his satisfaction over this recognition, AUS Chancellor Dr. Peter Heath said, “This is good news for everyone. It is now confirmed by outside experts that AUS meets international standards of excellence.”

Chancellor Heath added, “This achievement reflected a commitment by the founder and President of AUS, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to create a university that would match American standards in its academic programs.” He attributed the achievement mainly to the unwavering support of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah.

“This news is also a tribute to the dedication of hundreds of faculty, staff and students over the last 15 years. They can take pride in what they have achieved,” he said. “We, at AUS, have long-known about the quality of the education that we provide for our students. Yet external recognition of this fact is always welcome. AUS looks forward to continuing to increase its academic quality and reputation in order to serve our students in the best possible fashion,” concluded Dr. Heath.

Ben Sowter, head of the QS intelligence Unit said, “The continued presence in the QS World University Rankings of a group of universities from the Middle East which first entered the rankings in 2011 represents a sound return on the huge investments being made in higher education and research in this region.”

2012 is the ninth year that QS has published its World University Rankings, which have become established as the most widely read university comparison of their kind. They are based on six indicators and were this year compiled following surveys of over 46,000 academics and 28,000 employers, the largest of their kind ever conducted.

Sidra Medical and Research Center recognizes research interviewers for their contribution to Sidra’s services planning

Sidra Medical and Research Center recognizes research interviewers for their contribution to Sidra’s services planning


225Sidra Medical and Research Center together with Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) honored professionals who recently completed qualitative research training as part of Sidra’s community engagement initiative in an awards ceremony at Sidra offices in Doha.

Twenty five men and women were awarded certificates upon completing the Qualitative Research Interview Skills Workshop. The workshop was designed to support researchers in collecting unbiased and high-quality data where human inter-phase is required, especially in multi-cultural settings such as Doha. Over the course of two months, trainees spent 24 hours on in-classroom training, matched by out-of-classroom coursework, and eight to 12 hours of field observation.

Trainees learned a transferable skill set of research practices that can be used in their everyday jobs. In addition to international and cross-cultural interviewing, informed consent, active listening techniques, qualitative data gathering and data processing, students were also trained in validation and verifying skills.

The Research Interview Skills Workshop is an integral part of the CCP, which aims to gather insights about women’s health from the local Arabic-speaking community, to help inform services being planned for Sidra.

“The vision for Sidra first emerged from the needs of the local community, and we have continued to involve these communities in planning the center’s service offerings. Sidra will have an organic connection with the community through on-going engagement with the public in a culturally sensitive and effective manner, an engagement rooted in the CCP. The Workshop goes even further in helping Sidra and the local communities support each other’s progress, by offering our trainees a chance to learn new skills,” said Olufunke Ilori, Sidra senior planning consultant.

The CCP was started in 2009 as part of Sidra’s commitment to engage with the community through enhanced and individualized communications efforts that would help ground Sidra’s services and approaches to health care in the needs of the community. The project aims to inform and gather views, concerns and opinions from women planning to use health services at Sidra, to ensure that the services are culturally sensitive. To date, the CCP has matriculated 38 professionals through the workshop.

Dr. Cindy McKeon, director of clinical research at WCMC-Q, said: “The collaboration between WCMC-Q and Sidra was highly successful and demonstrates what can be achieved by sharing expertise and knowledge. As such, both WCMC-Q and Sidra are keen for the collaboration to continue and for further joint research workshops to be offered in the future.

“The program has allowed WCMC-Q to augment its clinical research practices as it provides for enhanced interaction between the researchers and patients and affords the researchers greater insight into what the patient has to say.”

Participants saw their role in the CCP as a valuable experience to learn marketable new skills and play a significant role in building the community.

“I’m eager to take part in future research to help inform planning for medical services at Sidra. Having the opportunity to help inform the innovative design and care model planned for Sidra allows me to play my part in improving standards of health and wellbeing for women and children in the community, and create a brighter future for the people of Qatar,” said Abdulla Jassim Abdulla, head of policy analysis and development at the Sidra Executive Project Office.

All players who took part in the latest programme, which reflected the dynamic styles seen from Manchester United first team players like Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, received certificates and individual player evaluations from their coaches in front of parents, siblings and friends.

“The skills challenges are a great way to test the abilities of our players and chart their progress but the beauty is that they are age-handicapped so the seven year olds can compete fairly against the 16 year olds,” said Andy Dixon, head coach at MUSS Abu Dhabi. 

MUSS 2

“Of the 30 children we will put forward into the competition, the top two point scorers will receive an all expenses paid trip to Manchester to represent Abu Dhabi and compete against their peers from around the world, playing in front of 75,000 people at Old Trafford.”

Abu Dhabi based developer Reem Investments, which has signed a partnership agreement with MUSS, built the Dome@Rawdhat in order to create a vibrant sporting community in the area. Reem Investments have the exclusive rights to extend the MUSS programme across the GCC. 

The second MUSS module kicks off on Saturday 7 January, 2012 and will focus on the specific techniques of players Ryan Giggs, Nani and Antonio Valencia.  For the first time in the UAE, there will be girls-only sessions conducted on the indoor pitches at the Dome@Rawdhat under the tutelage of female coach Stela Samuela.
