MBBCh Program Dubai Medical College
The College follows a program of intensive teaching for a period of six years. This comprises of a preclinical phase, a clinical phase and an internship phase.
An essential part of the clinical phase teaching is the acquisition of technical and clinical skills essential to the practice of medicine. In order to acquire these competencies, skills and attitudes, students are divided into small groups (about 6 students) to do clerkships, which involve examining patients and participating in their management under the supervision of teaching staff. They attend ward rounds, teaching rounds, observe procedures and operations, and involve themselves in small group discussions in case presentations.
Students are taught the basic skills of history-taking and clinical examination in lecture halls and seminar rooms equipped with all of the necessary teaching aids. They are trained in clinical skills at the Simulation Lab and the clinical skill slab from year 1 to year 5.
