ADU Financial and Administrative Affairs vice-chancellor Dr Hamad Odhabi said: “Abu Dhabi University continues to invest in its research capabilities to contribute to the UAE’s vision of building a knowledge-based economy.”

In addition, the collaboration will see the organisation of workshops, conferences and seminars to discuss the latest developments in health sciences.

ADU will use its academic facilities to support Burjeel through lectures and training workshops aimed at enhancing human resources and administrative practices.

In turn, Burjeel will offer internship opportunities across its UAE facilities, providing ADU students with practical skills essential for their future healthcare careers.

Burjeel Holdings Group COO Safeer Ahamed said: “This collaboration will open up unparalleled training opportunities for health sciences students, equipping a new generation of healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to drive excellence and innovation in the field.”
