Education Minister Praises ‘AGU’ Leading Position

The Arabian Gulf University (AGU) has recently attained new achievements in the field of being granted accreditation from prestigious international institutions, as three of its academic programmes were lately internationally accredited.

This was announced as the University’s PhD programme in innovation management and technology was recently accredited by the Global Innovation Institute (GInI) in the US, while the clinical Master’s programme in family medicine got accredited by the The World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA), and the Simulation and Medical Skills Centre at the University was also accredited recently by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare  (SSH) in the US.

On this occasion, Education Minister and Higher Education Council (HEC) President Dr Majid Al Nuaimi received AGU President Dr Khalid Abdulrahman Al Ohaly and a number of senior officials at the University.

During the meeting, Dr Al Nuaimi hailed the  honourable achievement, which he said would reinforce confidence of the University’s leading academic programmes and would reflect positively on its scientific reputation among the distinguished higher education institutions.

The Minister reaffirmed the Kingdom of Bahrain’s support to AGU, describing it as an praiseworthy academic model that symbolises the deep brotherly bonds linking the countries of the GCC.

Dr Al Nuaimi commended on the efforts exerted by the University to launch clinical Master’s programme in family medicine in implementation of the decision of the Cabinet in this regard and as part of a national project to train newly graduated Bahraini doctors, in partnership with the Supreme Council of Health and Health Ministry, and supported by the Labour Fund “Tamkeen” to enhance the capabilities of young medical cadres.

The work progress of the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Medical City was also discussed during the meeting, in which Dr Al Nuaimi underlined its importance in improving educational and medical services in Bahrain and across the GCC region, adding that it is a clear reflection of the strong historic relations bonding the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

For his part, Dr Al Ohaly briefed the Minister on the University’s future plans and programmes, which aim to enhance its outcomes in all fields.

The meeting was attended by HEC General Secretary Dr Abdulghani Al Showaikh, AGU’s College of Medicine and Medical Science Dean Dr Abdelhalim Deifalla, AGU’s Family and Community Medicine Department Head Dr Afif Ben-Salah, Director of the Simulation and Medical Skills Centre at the University Dr Taysir Garadah and Director of Organisations Affairs an Committees in the Ministry Ms. Kefaya Al Anzoor.
