Undersecretary of the Court of HRH the Prime Minister, Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Khalifa, said that the nomination terms and conditions for the two categories of the “Khalifa bin Salman Award for Bahraini Doctors” have been amended in response to medical institutions’ request.

Under the amendment, medical institutions in the kingdom will be allowed to nominate any number of doctors, without any limit.

Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid stressed that the move aims to give more chances for Bahraini doctors to compete, in line with the objectives of the award, launched primarily to encourage doctors to showcase their distinction in the fields of therapeutic, clinical and medical research, as well as in innovation and service to society.

He added that the award embodies His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa’s interest in and care for Bahraini medical and health competencies in recognition of their dedication, and bravery in facing the novel coronavirus pandemic.

He praised the keenness of medical institutions and doctors to participate massively in the award, wishing them success.

The first category is “Innovation and Creative Award in Therapeutic, Clinical and Medical Research”. It will be granted to three Bahraini doctors who prepare therapeutic, clinical and medical scientific research and attain distinguished achievements in their medical field characterised by creativity and innovation.

Meanwhile, the second category, “Extended Loyalty and Giving Award”, will be granted to Bahraini doctors who have worked for a period of no less than 30 years, in recognition and appreciation of their efforts and contributions.
