The Department of Medical Education (MED) is responsible for provision of medical education, research and continuing professional development of healthcare experts in the United Arab Emirates. The Academic Affairs Centre (AAC) under the governance of MED established the Dubai Residency Training Program (DRTP) in 2006.
DRTP is a structured postgraduate Educational Training Program whose vision is to bridge the gap between Medical undergraduate qualification and specialized medical professions.
The program offers a customized learning platform where the residents are trained and constantly evaluated for consistent improvement. Furthermore, the residents are encouraged to consistently advance in handling responsibilities and independent practice commensurate to their individual level of knowledge and aptitude under the guidance of highly qualified and experienced mentors.
