AJMAN: Gulf Medical University (GMU) Ajman, bagged awards in seven distinctive categories at the recently concluded Asian Education Leadership Awards, held under the broad banner of the Asian Leadership Awards (ALA).

It was almost a clean sweep in the medical and healthcare education categories, as GMU won awards for Best Educational Institute in Medical Education, Best Educational Institute in Pharmacy (College of Pharmacy), Best Educational Institute in Dentistry (College of Dentistry), Best Educational Institute in Allied Health Sciences (College of Allied Health Sciences).

The deans of the respective colleges collected the awards.

The Provost of GMU, Prof Gita Ashok Raj, received the Best Provost Award for her remarkable leadership in guiding GMU to being one of the top medical universities in the region.

There was a special mention about the emphasis on innovation displayed by GMU in all its endeavours.

“We are proud to be recognised for our efforts,” said Founder President Thumbay Moideen in his initial reaction to the awards. “Such recognition plays a vital role to encourage us do better and also acknowledges the efforts that are put in by our entire team in education, healthcare and research. I wish to congratulate our academic team headed by Provost, and each and every faculty member and staff for their hard work and dedication. I am proud of them,” he said.

Gita said, “The achievement is a testimony to the relentless efforts and able guidance of our Founder President Thumbay Moideen. Gulf Medical University was rated as one of the top 100 best educational institutions in Asia earlier this year. Thumbay Group was earlier named as the Emirates Business Ambassador for Healthcare and Education.”

Apart from Gulf Medical University, faculty and departments from leading universities in the UAE like UAE University, Ajman University of Science and Technology, University of Sharjah, American University of Sharjah, Canadian University of Dubai, British University in Dubai, Al Ghurair University, Abu Dhabi University, and American University in Dubai have also won the awards.

Distinguished luminaries and senior government officials among others were present at the event as award winners and guests of honour.

The awards recognise remarkable business leaders and organizations in Asia for their continuing commitment to excellence, developing best practices and innovative strategies.
