As part of Al Jalila Foundation’s mission to transform lives through medical innovation, our scholarship fund supports brilliant medical students who display great promise to utilise their talent to be an integral part of the future medical community in the UAE.
Alea Khalid Abdelgadir Mohamed is one of these rising stars who received a scholarship to attend the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) six-year program to pursue a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS).
Having enrolled in 2016 Alea is now in her final weeks of the program and is in absolute awe of the opportunity she was given and intends to make the most of what she has learned.
“I am beyond grateful to Al Jalila Foundation for offering me the esteemed scholarship to complete the MBBS program at MBRU. Through the program I had support from incredible mentors, opportunities to participate in research at some of the world’s most prestigious hospitals and, most importantly, I learned how to become an empathetic, compassionate and hardworking physician striving to always put my patients first. I believe that these experiences will equip me with the necessary skills to contribute to the UAE’s healthcare system creating a positive impact in the delivery of effective and safe healthcare.”
We wish Alea every success as she moves forward in her role as a healthcare professional making a difference to patients’ lives.
