Maroof International Hospital is evolving in medical education. The culture of academia requires clinical care to be tied with transferring knowledge and skills to learners and developing them as a professional whole. Be it grand round, journal club, research or clinical care discussion, it is important to keep patient’s perspective at the core of all these activities.
We are already addressing the continuing educational needs of practicing physicians and are hopeful that addition of postgraduate programs will bring another phase of professional learning to Maroof hospital.
I hope that the efforts to strengthen the role of clinicians as educators and mentors will enrich the learning environment and help Maroof grow as an academic institution of quality.
