Celebrating the Class of Khalifa

Saad Syed has become the first doctor in his family and in his words “a dream come true” which he credits to his Al Jalila Foundation scholarship. Alea Mohammed says that she could not “have reached this milestone without the support of Al Jalila Foundation”. Aya Akhras pursued her academic journey with great pride and looks forward to “serving the UAE and giving back”.

Saad, Alea and Aya from the MBRU Class of Khalifa 2022 recently graduated from the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) program at Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) with Al Jalila Foundation scholarships. We are proud to celebrate 11 new medical doctors set to embark on the next chapter of their careers in medicine.

The graduates are made up of exceptionally talented men and women from 7 different countries who consider the UAE their home. By empowering the next generation of medical professionals Al Jalila Foundation is supporting the UAE healthcare agenda and enabling these bright students to realise their dreams of becoming doctors and saving lives.

At Al Jalila Foundation we know that a medical profession is one of the most noble and anyone pursuing this goal will undoubtedly be of great service throughout their life.

The commencement of MBRU Class of 2022 marks a total of 56 Al Jalila Foundation scholarship graduates in nursing, dentistry, public health, pharmacy, molecular biology and biotechnology, among others at local institutions and three international scholarships at Harvard Medical School and Boston University. Since the scholarship program launch in 2013 Al Jalila Foundation has invested almost AED 20 million to nurture the next generation of doctors.
