In January 2015, an academic partnership Services Agreement was signed between Queen’s and Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) to support the development and establishment of the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) in DHCC.
“The UAE’s health sector advancement is closely tied to increasing access to quality medical education. Part of the country’s wider development strategy is to work towards a sustainable and innovative healthcare system with qualified workforce. As the Chancellor of MBRU, I see great potential in the university’s role in achieving these goals and strengthening the global healthcare value chain. The MBRU and its students are partners in the UAE’s commitment to build healthcare capacity and enhance its healthcare system.”
“This partnership provides an opportunity for MBRU to achieve its vision to be an internationally recognised provider of high quality healthcare education and a centre for healthcare research. We are confident that this partnership will extend its reach beyond the campus of the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences.
“At MBRU we have taken on the responsibility to develop competencies in the healthcare sector by providing quality medical education, which will help transform the country into one of the most innovative in the world.”
“At Queen’s, which is among the top one percent of global universities, we pride ourselves on enabling our students to become game-changers, innovators, communicators and leaders, who are addressing global challenges and making their mark on the world. I am confident that the new medical students at MBRU, who are among the brightest and best, will be supported to realise their true potential, heralding a new era of healthcare in Dubai and other regional communities.”
