Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.S)

The MBBS program at College of Medicine (CoM) is a modular organ system based integrated curriculum divided into three phases.

The modular structure of the medical curriculum spans a total of 5 years followed by an internship of one year, PHASE I, also called the Introductory Medical Sciences, constitutes the 1st Year MBBS. Seven modules integrated on the basis of themes constitute PHASE I. A barrier examination will be conducted at the end of PHASE I, a prerequisite for the organ system based modules in PHASE II.

PHASE II spans over 2nd and 3rd Year MBBS. The ten modules are integrated on the basis of the organ systems in PHASE II. A Problem Based Learning (PBL) week is nested within each of the modules. Clinical teaching is introduced in this phase as the Basic Clinical Skills Module which will run parallel to the Organ System Modules. In the 2nd year, skills relevant to each system will be introduced in the respective modules in the safe environment of the Simulation Laboratory. A barrier examination will be held at the end of Phase II.

PHASE III spans over the next two years of 4th and 5th Year MBBS. It will have a Multi-system Module dealing with themes and topics that cut across multiple organ systems and disciplines running parallel to the clinical clerkship rotations in Surgery and Medicine and their allied disciplines, Pediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology. The theoretical component of teaching in the clinical phase will be sequenced on the basis of organ systems. A qualifying examination will be held at the end of PHASE III.

The successful students will be admitted to the internship program. The one-year Compulsory Rotating Residential Internship (CRRI) will provide the graduates on-the-job training under close supervision in the major areas of medicine and surgery. The graduates will be awarded the degree of MBBS on satisfactory completion of their internship.

The MBBS program was awarded Accreditation Eligible Classification Status (initial recognition) in June 2004 by the Commission for Academic Accreditation, Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research the degree is recognized by the Ministry of Health, UAE.

Gulf Medical University is listed at http://www.emro.who.int/HPED/ in the Eastern Mediterranean Regional Health Professions Education Directory of World Health Organizations.

The MBBS program shall strive to provide adequate opportunities to observe, perform and practice basic clinical/professional skills competently with an understanding of the basic sciences within the health care delivery system. The MBBS program offered by the Gulf Medical University, Ajman has 3 clearly defined goals. A total of 45 objectives have been derived from these goals. The learning outcomes of the proposed organ system-based, integrated curriculum have been listed for each module in the curriculum and are in turn closely aligned to the program objective.

At the end of the MBBS program the graduate should be able to: acquire and understand scientific principles of medical knowledge at the molecular, cellular, organ, whole body and environmental levels of health and disease. He/She should be able to apply the current understanding and recent advances in contemporary basic sciences to promote health problems of individuals (at different stages of life), families and communities.

He/ She should develop basic clinical skills (interpretive, manipulative and procedural) such as the ability to obtain a patient’s history, to undertake a comprehensive physical and mental state examination and interpret the findings and to demonstrate competence in the performance of a limited number of basic technical procedures.

He/ She should develop an attitude and practice personal and professional values necessary for the achievement of high standards of medical practice. This should enable him to carry out independently the responsibilities of a physician and to develop further knowledge and skills in order to adapt to the changes in the practice of medicine throughout his professional career.
