Saturday 25 January, 2014, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: In keeping with its global medical education initiatives, Cleveland Clinic once again supports the Arab Health Congress, which will be held at Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Center, United Arab Emirates, January 27 to 30, 2014.

Organized by Informa Life Sciences Exhibition, the leading annual medical congress in Dubai is the fifth that Cleveland Clinic supports and accredits under its Center for Continuing Education.

More than 15 key physicians from Cleveland Clinic, in Ohio, will speak at the congress about different topics including quality in healthcare, general surgery, cardiovascular care, colorectal surgery, orthopedic surgery, urology, liver diseases, asthma and pediatric pulmonology, pediatric neurology, spinal surgery and changes in spinal marrow, pathology and laboratory medicine, and diabetes care, including a review on insulin pumps, among others.

Cleveland Clinic accredits several conferences within the four-day Arab Health Congress, including the Anesthesia Conference, the Radiology Conference, the Orthopedic Conference, MEDLAB Conference, the Surgery Conference, the Urology Conference, the Pediatrics Conference, the Gastroenterology Conference, the Quality Management in Healthcare Conference, the Respiratory, Critical Care and Sleep Disorders Conference, the Wound Care Conference, the Diabetes Conference, the Cardiovascular Disease and Intervention Conference, and the Leaders in Healthcare Conference.

“With the strong presence of Cleveland Clinic in the Middle East region and, specifically, UAE, we are thrilled to support continuing medical education programs for healthcare professionals,” said William Carey, M.D., Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Continuing Education. “We are particularly proud to be part of the renowned Arab Health Congress. We take part in educational events and CME accreditations that comprise valuable and up-to-date topics that are relevant to the medical disciplines being addressed in the region. Our goal is to provide the most current evidence-based medical education possible with the conviction that this will allow health care professionals to take better care of their patients.”

Cleveland Clinic’s continuing education program is certified by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, with commendation.

Most healthcare professionals world-wide are required to achieve a recognized level of continuing medical education in order to maintain or renew their professional licenses and keep themselves up-to-date with recent scientific changes and innovations.

As the Activity Director of Leaders in Healthcare Conference and the Wound Care Conference during Arab Health Congress, Dr. Bill Ruschhaupt, Chairman of Cleveland Clinic Global Health Center, who also chairs the judging panel for Cleveland Clinic’s Young Clinician Award during the Arab Health Awards Ceremony, said, “Cleveland Clinic’s physicians and executives are committed to sharing their expertise with the worldwide medical community by highlighting the most recent advances in clinical and academic settings. Through the conferences, we offer solutions, guidelines and strategies based on current scientific evidence by our internationally renowned speakers.”
