GMU has also tied up with MAHSA University in Malaysia to provide a twinning MBBS programme that will give 50 prospective students a high quality pre-clinical education for the first two years at GMU Campus in Ajman, and then a three-year clinical training at MAHSA University in Kuala Lumpur. The programme is approved by the education ministries of both the UAE and Malaysia. Upon successful completion of the 5 year program, the students will be awarded the MBBS Degree by MAHSA University Malaysia.

“We will continue to survey the market to develop many more programmes to meet the needs not only of health professionals but also of health management and support workers and health science investigators in order to meet the health-care needs of the nation and the region,” said Thumbay Moideen.
