Message from the Dean Dubai Medical College for Girls was the first private college awarding a degree in medicine & surgery in the UAE. Thanks to the foresight of Haj Saeed Lootah, the college was established on Islamic principles to offer the girls in the UAE an opportunity to study medicine inside the UAE and avoid the troubles and risks of travelling abroad. Girls in the UAE were offered the chance to serve their country in the medical field and they grasped this opportunity. Being the only accredited private medical college in the UAE puts a lot of responsibility on our shoulders. Our college offered, and continues to offer a distinguished Islamic environment, modern medical educational programs and state-of-the-art facilities. Our teaching programs have continuously been evaluated and readjusted according to the recent advances in the medical education. Our sustenance and encouragement comes from the constant support given to the Dubai Medical College for Girls by Haj Saeed Bin Ahmed Al Lootah, Chairman of the Board of trustees. Dubai Medical College is adopting a system of self-learning activity, which represents the core of all recent educational philosophies. Integrated teaching programs were implemented for the pre-clinical phase. This ensures a comprehensive understanding of the subjects of this phase and prepares the students for the clinical phase. DMC Student Manual Student activities have been given greater support under the Islamic principle of sorority which encourage establishing relations of sisterhood among the students. The student s union has been activated to include scientific, cultural, and social and sports activities. We welcome all aspiring girls to join our college to breathe under an Islamic environment and benefit from our distinguished educational programs. Clinical Dean s Foreword Prof. Mohamed Galal El Din Ahmed Dean, Dubai Medical College for Girls Dubai Medical College is proud that Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has been its primary partner to offer clinical training during the students clinical training years. The DHA and Dubai Medical College s agreement to join forces has produced a medical course of the highest international standards, as testified by the high esteem in which our graduates are held worldwide. During the clinical phase, medical Students are divided into small groups of 4-5 students in order to enhance the learning process and ensure they get hands on experience. Teaching is organized so that students receive teaching in the various inpatient and outpatient facilities of all hospitals of DHA as well as the various primary care centers and some of the specialty centers in DHA. Many prominent clinicians from DHA are adjunct faculty members at Dubai Medical College (currently over 200 Staff members). There are also didactic teaching sessions that take place both in the hospitals as well as at the medical education clinical faculty building. Other aspects of unique training that the students receive during the clinical years include simulation; this is carried out at the state of the art simulation lab located in Dubai Health Care City DMC Student Manual (DHCC). Students in the clinical phase are also exposed to clinical research activities early in their training. All students are required to involve in research activities under supervision before they graduate. We are committed to providing a global high standard clinical curriculum that takes into consideration our local health issues. We continue to welcome all students who are motivated and enthusiastic about making a career in the noble profession of medicine. Prof. Dima Abdelmannan FACP, FRCP Clinical Dean, Dubai Medical College History of the College More than 30 years ago, establishing a world-renowned medical education institution for girls in the UAE would seem like an impossible dream. Yet, on August 1, 1986, our founder Haj Saeed Bin Ahmed Al Lootah accomplished that very goal and classes began at Dubai Medical College (DMC) with Professor Dr. Zahira H. Abdin as the founding dean. His visionary dream had become a reality. The first class of students graduated in May During these formative years, the College received substantial professional support and advice from the Leicester Medical School in the United Kingdom and the Cairo Medical School in Egypt. This international contribution combined with the faculty s extensive experience led to the creation of an intensive curriculum that would incorporate the best of the world s medical practices. Since its inception, DMC has been fortunate in receiving help from the government of Dubai s Department of Health and Medical Services under its former Director H.E. Dr. Juma Khalfan Balhoul. The department s hospitals opened their doors and welcomed DMC students for clinical training. Our continued drive for excellence demands seamless integration between clinical and pre-clinical phases. In 2004, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by DHA and DMC to secure this process. What we now know, as an outstanding educational institution is a product of the cooperative solidarity of a group of people who put their heart and soul in it. Nearly two decades of academic distinction have made DMC a truly dynamic centre of higher education par excellence. DMC Student Manual With over 1000 graduates practicing medicine across the world and a campus that includes professors and students from over 30 different countries, DMC has earned a reputation as one of the best centres for medical education and a beacon of academic excellence.

Specific guidelines for clinical setting The medical profession is a noble one where a doctor is expected to treat a suffering patient. It requires a great amount of dedication and sacrifice on the part of the person who aspires to accept this career. The students of DMCG need to understand that during the course of study, due to the inherent nature of the field of health care, students may have to change some practices for the sake of the patients. 1. All students are expected to show integrity of character, honesty and dedication to their profession in all actions and words. 2. Their dress and conduct should be formal and reflect professionalism during their contact with patients in order to gain respect from patients and society. 3. Though students are strongly advised to follow the Islamic dress code, face covering is not permissible in hospital premises, such as wards and operating theatres, where students and doctors come in contact with patients. The rights of the patients, among others, include identification of the doctor or medical student, who wishes to communicate with them. The use of facial expressions of compassion, care and confidence will help to build trust in the patients being cared for. It constitutes an essential part of the communication skill (as part of DMC Student Manual the non-verbal aspect of communication) that is employed in gaining information from patients and in imparting advice and instructions to them. 4. Students must understand that the patient is central to the medical profession and his rights must always be upheld. In particular, permission needs to be obtained from a patient every time that there is a student / patient encounter and this needs to be carried out in a specified manner. The student should state her name, her position, the reason for seeking information or examining the patient and must wait to obtain the permission before she proceeds with the examination. Should the patient refuse to give permission for any reason, then the student must accept the decision and not proceed any further. 5. All students have to learn about diagnosis and management of both male and female patients during their education and internship. Medical care cannot be restricted to female patients during the period of study and it may necessitate students to examine male patients as part of their clinical examination and treatment. 6. The students may sometimes have to expose their hands or forearms as part of the sterilization process required for performing procedures under sterile precautions. 7. The students are expected to keep all information that she may have access to during professional contact with the patient, confidential. 8. The students have to be prepared to abide by the rules of the hospitals and cooperate with the faculty and other staff in upholding the reputation of the institution. Academic Honesty Guidelines Students attending Dubai Medical College are awarded academic degrees in recognition of successful completion of course work in the study of medicine. Each individual is expected to earn her degree on the basis of personal effort. Consequently, any form of cheating on examinations or plagiarism on assigned papers constitutes unacceptable deceit and dishonesty. Disruption of the classroom or teaching environment is also unacceptable. This cannot be tolerated in the college community and will be punishable, according to the seriousness of the offense, in conformity with established rules and procedures. 1. Plagiarism - Plagiarism is defined as literary theft and consists of the unattributed quotation of the exact words of a published text, or the unattributed borrowing of original ideas by paraphrase from a publish
