II. Teaching Facilities at the Clinical Phase

Clinical teaching program has been instituted by the Department of  Dubai Health Authority  (DHA). Clinical teaching is done mainly at the following centers: Rashid Hospital, Latifa Hospital, New Dubai Hospital, and Primary Health Center, Dubai. Teaching facilities in these centers are quite comprehensive, advanced and up-to-date. They include wards for the patients, clinics, health centers, operation theatres, laboratories and diagnosis facilities, such as X-Ray, cross-sectional rays, TV photography, nuclear medicine, microbes, biochemistry, blood analysis, and genetics, etc.

The faculty members and students benefit from these facilities through co-ordination with the management of hospitals and clinical departments.

Pathology department at the New Dubai Hospital provides a number of pathologic models, slides and microscopic slides with detailed description. These slides assist students in their study under the guidance and supervision of consultants in the Pathology Department. There is a continuous supply of samples to the Pathology Museum in the Dubai Medical College. Departments of Hematology, Microbiology and Genetics are considered important to support the educational process. Anatomical models are also available for special sessions, and the number is ever increasing.

Photography Services in the DHA hospitals provide the staff with slides on special request.
