HONOURS & PRIZES
“ It was a great honor for me to be among the first medical graduates from AQU in Palestine's history ”
At Al-Quds University, I managed to develop skills in Medical Education and to Excel in Research,I was accepted for admission at the AQU MS in 1994, graduated in 2001 and one of the first batch of graduates there. It was a great honor for me to be among the first medical graduates in Palestine`s history. After graduation, I was offered a scholarship to do PhD in the University of London which I finished after 4 years and committed to go back to Palestine to work at AQU for 6 years. During studying times, I enjoyed the basic sciences phase of my study that is year 2 to year 4. It was amazing and the faculty members we had were really distinguished.
I recall we had teaching faculty from UK, Sweden, Nigeria, etc.. They fascinated me with their knowledge and experience to the extent that I loved to be like them. Indeed, after graduation my dream came true and I was lucky to receive a pharmacology PhD scholarship.
Now I’m an assistant professor of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the Arabian Gulf University in Bahrain, where I offer service to teaching and learning basic and clinical pharmacology at the Faculty of Medicine and Medical Sciences. As part of this, I participate in traditional teaching of this subject as lectures and also as a facilitator for tutorials in problem-based learning sessions. In addition to teaching commitments, I also have 2 research projects which I have just got approved by the university. One of the projects is a medical education type and the other one is basic pharmacology one. My experience at Al-Quds University as a faculty member was of great help for me to take my job here properly and perfectly.
Since the first year of my work here, I have received excellent evaluation from the students and from my head of department for my performance in teaching. All this success would not have been possible unless I had the amazing experience and opportunity at AQU. One fact I need to mention in this regard is that Dr Hani Abdeen indeed was keen to give me the chances to learn new experiences while at the Medical School at AQU.
I had a truly exceptional experience at Al-Quds University. Being a student and an assistant professor was amazing in all means. Indeed, I managed to develop skills in medical education and to excel in research there. The experience I had at Al-Quds Medical School was detrimental to my success at work at the Arabian Gulf University in Bahrain.
