UAE's Gulf Medical University to Open EGP 5 Billion Branch in Egypt

A Saturday meeting between the Minister of Investment and International Cooperation Sahar Nasr and the Founder and President of Thumbay Group Thumbay Moideen, concluded with an agreement to establish a branch of UAE’s Gulf Medical University in Egypt.

The agreement was signed by Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Khaled Abdel Ghafaar, Nasr and Moideen, and the meeting witnessed the presence of Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly. The EGP 5 billion deal comes as part of a goal to establish a medical park which provides comprehensive healthcare and training for young health workers.

Partnered with several global universities, the likes of University of Arizona, Tokyo Medical University and University of Commonwealth Virginia, The Ajman-based Gulf Medical University is equipped with training techniques in all medical branches such as virtual patient, which is an interactive software simulating clinical processes.

Nasr adds that they've been working with the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to bring in investments in human capital, which is part of the framework of the presidential initiative.

Founded in 1998, Thumbay Group is the biggest medical-care provider in the UAE and is based in Dubai. The Gulf Medical University which is run and owned by Thumbay Group has also been around since 1998 and was the first in the MENA region to incorporate Masters in human reproductive biology and physical therapy.
