The Arabian Gulf University (AGU) has recently participated in a meeting of the GCC Deans of Medical Colleges’ Committee. The meeting was hosted by the College of Medicine at Kuwait University under the patronage of Dr Meshari Al Harbi, Director of Kuwait University, and Dr Mona Al Ahmad, Acting Dean of the College of Medicine.

A total of 35 deans of medical colleges from the GCC countries and a representative of the General Secretariat in Riyadh attended the meeting.

On this occasion, Prof. Abdelhalim Deifalla, Dean of the College of Medicine and Medical Sciences (CMMS) at AGU and Secretary General of the GCC Deans of Medical Colleges’ Committee, congratulated the leadership and people of Kuwait on the national holidays under the leadership of His Highness the Amir Shaikh Mishal Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah.

Prof. Deifalla further stressed the importance of holding these meetings periodically for the deans of medical colleges to continue building on joint work on important issues in higher education and health in the GCC countries. He emphasised the importance of activating the exchange of students and academic staff members in medical colleges to enrich education and exchange ideas for the development and enhancement of the educational process.

Moreover, Dr Deifalla explained that the meeting aimed to organise joint work in higher education under the patronage of the GCC General Secretariat. He clarified that various topics were discussed, including applications of artificial intelligence in medical education, developing the internship year, priorities for joint work in higher education, and coordinating efforts in all fields of education and scientific research.

It is worth noting that the committee, established in 1992, aims to develop medical education, curricula, teaching methods and evaluation at the undergraduate and graduate levels. It also seeks to encourage collaboration between corresponding departments in medical colleges and support joint scientific research.

Prof. Deifalla expressed his gratitude to Kuwait University for hosting the meeting and for their interest, follow-up and continuous support for joint Gulf action, while at the same time commending the good organisation of the meeting.
