The vision of The Family Medicine Department is to educate physicians that are prepared for advanced, international graduate training in all fields of medicine (Faculty Vision) embedded in Family Medicine Principles where the main focus is the patient and the community in context.
The mission is to instill in the students the eagerness to search for evidence in their application of knowledge in the workplace and become lifelong learners, to revise, integrate and apply prior knowledge and clinical skills in an experiential learning environment, to challenge reasoning ability and enhance problem solving skills, to participate in moulding attitudes and behavior against the Principles of Family Medicine. Students need to obtain the knowledge and skills to serve the local and national United Arab Emirates community.
The Department of Family Medicine is a central participant in medical education leading to the MD and Bachelors of Medical Science degrees. In addition, we contribute to teaching in the professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy.
The Department of Family Medicine is fortunate to be able to draw on the talents of a diverse, energetic and talented pool of faculty and staff for its teaching, service and research activities. The mission statement of our department integrates the discovery and propagation of knowledge important to clinical practice, education, and the organization of health care as a core task. In addition, our leadership roles in medical education and teaching clinical skills complement the provision of an outstanding clerkship experience to medical students. We also play a leading role in supporting medical student community outreach efforts, and support for the community based Family Medicine Residency program.
