The Thumbay Hospital network provides clinical training for the students of Gulf Medical University (GMU). Many of our doctors also have the privilege of being professors at the university, and as a result stay constantly updated on the latest trends and developments in the field of medicine. This in turn lends an academic atmosphere to Thumbay Hospitals. Thumbay Hospital prides itself on being the largest network of private academic hospitals in the region. This is one of the most important aspects which differentiate Thumbay Hospitals from the other healthcare providers in the region. In the UAE alone, GMU and its network of pioneering teaching hospitals train around 20 per cent of the doctors and 60 per cent of the total healthcare professionals.
The College of Health Sciences of Gulf Medical University offers Bachelors (BPT) and Masters (MPT) programs in physical therapy.
