Inter-Collegiate Debate 2017

15 Nov 2017:

Report: By – Afrah Ghayoor and Reem Mohammad

Dubai Medical College organized an Inter Collegiate debate that was held in the college’s Round hall on 12th November 2017, Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The debate was held between the four main medical universities. The first round was held between Dubai Medical University and Gulf Medical University on the topic “Superbugs, have we become too dependent on Antibiotics?” with DMU being for the motion and GMU being against it.

This was followed by a lively second round between University of Sharjah and Ras-Al-Khaimah Medical University on the topic “Online Healthcare Practioner, great idea or foolish career cutting?” with RAK debating on it being a great idea and UOS opposing them.

The two rounds were judged by a panel of judges which comprised of Professors from the participating universities.

The final round of cross fire was held between University of Sharjah and Gulf Medical University, on the much controversial topic of balancing ethics and needs namely “In some countries, everyone is automatically an organ donor upon brain or cardiac death. Should this be a global standard?”

Both the teams put up remarkably exceptional arguments from their sides, with GMU being for the motion and UOS being against it. The heated argument ended with UOS winning the final round and managing to convince the majority of the crowd with their viewpoint.

Finally, the winning team of University of Sharjah was awarded with Medals which was followed by a sumptuous lunch.
