The College of Medicine, while consolidating on its undergraduate innovative educational programs, initiated postgraduate programs offering Master and Ph.D. degrees in Molecular Medicine and Translational Research. The program started in mid-2016.
The College has succeeded in establishing strategic alliances with leading universities and institutions in Germany, Canada, Australia, and the U.S.A. Agreements have been signed by His Highness, Sheikh Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qassimi, with Lubeck University in Germany to support postgraduate training and research in laboratories that have earned an international reputation. An important aspect of the agreement with Lubeck University is to establish joint supervision of a Master’s and Ph.D. programs in Molecular Medicine and Translational Research where the degrees are awarded by the two universities. Similar agreements are underway between the University of Sharjah and McGill University as well as the University of Ottawa in Canada.
