History:

A farsighted vision of the Founder President of the institution Mr. Thumbay Moideen was made a reality by the establishment of this special division to cater to the needs of Continuing Medical Education Activities in the country and the region.

The division has been in the forefront of organizing Conferences, Symposia and Seminars at International, Regional and National Level since its inception. The division has conducted over 190 events to date benefiting over 16,000 (cumulative numbers) clinicians and health care workers.

Introduction:

The mission of the Health Communications Division is to advance the quality of healthcare by optimizing the experience and process of healthcare communication through three major activities: education, publications, and partnerships.

The division stresses the concept that effective healthcare communication is a necessity, not an option. We create and disseminate innovative educational programs and services. We also engage in collaborative scientific activities, and we partner with other leading organizations that share our vision.

The Division has entered into tie-up with many international, regional and local institutions, government bodies and agencies to hold collaborative events.
