Dubai Medical College

DMC was the first college to award a degree in medicine & surgery in the UAE. The college was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit educational venture by the visionary entrepreneur Haj Saeed Bin Ahmed Al Lootah to offer girls in the United Arab Emirates and the region an opportunity to study medicine and avoid the troubles and risks of traveling abroad.

Today, DMC has a record of over 500 competent graduate physicians and continues to be the leading internationally accredited medical college in the region.

The fact that the college is solely for girls and that DMC was envisioned at a time when higher education for girls in the region was lagging far behind than that of the developed countries, makes DMC very unique even to this day. 

DMC has implemented an Innovative Medical Education Program as an integrated framework of Problem-Based Learning. The program allows undergraduate medical students to be better exposed to specific human and community needs and benefit from more experiential and inductive methods of learning.

In recognition of its drive for excellence, DMC was awarded the 'Dubai Quality Appreciation Program' in 2006 and is proud to be the first medical college in UAE to be awarded for its quality standards.
