The Family Medicine Department, part of the College of Medicine and Health Sciences, teaches undergraduates from the beginning of their university careers up to the final integrated exam (FIE), after which successful students graduate and start upon their professional lives. We also contribute to the Pharm.D Program and family medicine residency programs.
Family Medicine was recently voted the top choice among UAEU medical students from all the available clinical specialties. This is due to a combination of clinical experience and learner-centered teaching strategies that inculcate core clinical competencies. This further recognizes our determination to disseminate clinical expertise, compassion and understanding to the next generation of physicians.
Pre-Medical Program: This is a two year program that focuses on medical ethics, professionalism and medical law. We have an integrated curriculum that reinforces the necessary knowledge and skills without any unwanted repetition. We support students to become life-long and self-directed learners. We utilize many different teaching methods including both didactic and interactive lectures. We also teach the basics of ethical reasoning and apply this to case studies where relevant.
Pre-Clinical Program: The Family Medicine Department contributes to several different two-year long pre-clinical courses. These include courses in clinical skills, problem based learning (PBL) and standard lectures.
Clinical Program: Students spend four weeks learning the principles of Family Medicine and applying them in normal day-to-day practice. They gain first-hand experience of diagnostic skills, the management of common conditions and preventative care. There are many opportunities for students to apply and develop their knowledge and skills by caring for patients at various primary health care clinics in Al Ain. We foster self-directed learning in order for students to build on the knowledge and clinical skills they have acquired to date. This involves situations relating to the type of problems encountered by patients in these clinics. We also encourage students to identify their own learning needs and to conduct case discussions in order to develop reasoning skills in a clinical context.
DOCTORATE IN CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY (PHARM D): The Department of Family Medicine is responsible for the clinical skills training of graduate students completing their Pharm D degree. Training extends over a 5 week period in the second year of the training. Communication skills, history taking and clinical reasoning are included in the program. Interactive discussions and case based teaching method is implemented.
FAMILY MEDICINE RESIDENCY PROGRAM: Family Medicine faculty participates as core faculty in the Family Medicine Residency program. They were actively involved in the ACGME program development and accreditation process. They also participate in clinical assessment and Arab Board examinations. Weekly clinical teaching and supervision with participation in a mentorship program is part of the involvement. Faculty supervised multiple research projects of residents. Study results were reported on four international conferences.
