The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has designated American Hospital Dubai (AHD) as a training location for its national internship programme for medical interns. AHD is one of the first private hospitals to have a DHA training licence to conduct internships to medical physicians.
The licence allows the hospital to provide clinical training services, allowing future healthcare professionals to further their studies and get practical field experience before entering the medical field.
In its inaugural batch of interns, AHD will teach eight doctors from varied foreign backgrounds from across the world, strengthening their talents to become future physicians. “At the AHAI, we hope to become among the region’s leaders in the field of healthcare professionals’ education,” stated Professor Dr Firas Alani, head of the American Hospital Academic Institute (AHAI) and director of interventional cardiology. ”
We are honoured to have been invited by DHA to serve as a training site for the prestigious national internship programme, which coincides with the vision and goals of the AHD Institute.
At AHD, interns will undergo a year of organised learning from highly competent, western-trained physicians. AHD is the Middle East’s first hospital to be accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), and its laboratory is the region’s first in the private sector to be recognised by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
AHD is the UAE’s first private hospital to be designated as an American Heart Association (AHA) International Training Centre for life support training. American Hospital, a top private healthcare provider in the Middle East, is part of the Mohamed and Obaid Al Mullah Group, which provides world-class medical services to the community and area. All AHD physicians are American Board certified or equivalent, guaranteeing that patients in the UAE get an international quality of treatment.
