Yesterday, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) welcomed young students to hospitals in the free zone to celebrate the rejoice of Children’s Day aiming to inspire them to build their career in medicine to help the community through health care.
DHCC arranged the event at Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Hospital-Dubai, Emirates Specialty Hospital, and Mediclinic City Hospital with the partnership of UAE Ministry of Education.
Physicians and nurses interacted with more than 20 students aged between seven and 12 accompanied by their teachers from the Jumeirah School. They gained knowledge about emergency live saving and pediatrics and lots more about the life-saving profession.
DHCC aims to provide the most important awareness about the rewards of studying medicine, said Kawthar Kazim, vice-president of Business Support, Dubai Healthcare City Authority. “We are giving young students a glimpse into the profession in a way that can help nurture interest, and develop a generation of home-grown medical professionals.”
Dr. Taha Al Hazarmerdi, the general manager of Dr. Sulaiman Habib Hospital said, “Giving children a chance to role play or dress-up play has been proven to have a positive association. Through this initiative, we were able to familiarise children with the medical profession in a real-life environment.”
