The HMSDC observership programme, which ran from July 7 to August 1, is a part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Academic Medical Centre.

It allowed the senior students to be trained in some of the world’s best hospitals, the Harvard affiliated hospitals in Boston. It also provided them with a broad interdisciplinary approach to their studies while facilitating intensive interaction with the Harvard medical faculty and students.

The programme is a collaborative effort of Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) and HMSDC.

Dr Zahra Baalawi, Director of Education, HMSDC, said: “HMSDC is extremely proud of the students for being selected and successfully completing the prestigious programme. These young women were exposed to expert training in their respective fields, and have brought back knowledge and skill to the region.”

HMSDC has offered these observerships, to Sharjah Women’s College (SWC) students, for the second year in a row, after the immense success witnessed last year.
