My Dear Students
As we are all going through a difficult time fighting against this vicious COVID-19 virus and the major disruption it has created in our lives. I would like to thank you for adjusting to the challenges of distance learning.
The COVID-19 is an “EVENT” which Alain Badiou, a French philosopher describes “An ‘Event’ has the power to rupture standard practices and approved knowledge disclosing heightened ability to think and act”. The COVID-19 pandemic is an “Event” which has and will continue to change the world and brings new innovations in many aspects of our lives. At GMU in two weeks we did what could take years for, transforming the university to become strong in distance learning. We have introduced new technologies, training faculty, training the students and implementing innovative systems of learning, teaching and shortly new assessment are evolving. You have been great in adjusting to this new environment. We appreciate the great constructive feedback we receive from you. It helps us to continue improve and learn how we can do things better.
I want to reassure you; we will never comprise on the quality of education and training. You will complete all your practical skills and clinical training without any delays for your graduation or promotion from one year to the next.
Together we will come out of this situation stronger and better. Gulf Medical University will continue to be one of the best higher education institutions for Health Professions Education.
We are here to continuously provide you with all the support you may need. Looking forward to celebrate together, Inshah Allah the world victory over COVID-19 virus.
Take care of yourself and your families.
