School of Medicine

Mission:
The new MBBCh program aims to produce a distinctive NGU doctor: a scientifically literate, research-informed, patient-centered and socially responsible professional who can serve the health needs of individuals and communities both in Egypt and beyond.

Vision:
Creating a community of interdisciplinary faculty researchers and students that foster excellence and encourages innovation. This community’s contributions enable it to spearhead academic and scientific advancement in the region and across the world by building a strong foundation for 21st-century learning.

The NGU Doctor
A distinctive scientifically literate, research-informed, patient-centered and socially responsible professional who can serve the health needs of individuals and communities both in Egypt and beyond. The program will enable students to develop as scientists, individuals, practitioners and professionals, possessing a wide range of clinical, professional, generic skills and orientations to enable them to thrive in an ever-changing healthcare environment as a life-long learner.

Prof. Dr. Deborah Gill, Medical School Director (UCL School of Medicine), talking about NGU collaboration with UCL

  • Organogram

  • Accreditation & academic collaboration

    Accreditation:
    Endorsed by Presidential Decree in April 2010, NGU initially focused on the launching of three main schools: Medicine, Pharmacy, and Dentistry.
    The university first opened its doors in 2016, and since then, its schools have been witnessing a continual growth including fields other than healthcare, until it became a truly multidisciplinary university. NGU’s ongoing collaborations with globally-ranked academic institutions further cemented its growing reputation as a professional institute of higher education.

    University College London (UCL):
    The academic collaboration between UCL and NGU was centered on NGU’s School of Health Sciences, enhancing NGU’s academic capabilities, as well as offering world-renowned undergraduate programs, providing both school and students with ample opportunities for development on an academic and personal levels.
    This collaboration ensured that the highest international standards in teaching and research are met at NGU, with highly qualified faculty members providing instruction and supervision, starting at first with three schools: School of Medicine in collaboration with UCL Medical School, School of Pharmacy in collaboration with UCL School of Pharmacy, and School of Dentistry in collaboration with UCL Eastman Dental Clinic.
    Being London’s ‘global university’, University College London (UCL) has a distinguished presence in Australia and Qatar, as well as partnerships around the world with a host of leading educational bodies, from Berkeley to Yale, and Peking University to the University of Sydney, UCL’s influence spans the globe, with such accreditations, it brought its worldwide expertise to NGU.
    Having Currently ranked 7th on the QS World University Rankings, and consistently placing in the Top 20 of various global university rankings, UCL is widely recognized for its research capabilities and contributions to scholarships and innovations. The university boasts 29 Nobel Prize winners and is the 2nd most cited university in Europe, as of 2016.
    Right at the heart of the Giza Plateau and within touching distance of the Great Pyramids, UCL’s professors, lecturers, and staff lead the brightest young minds forward towards successful careers in their chosen field. UCL focuses on personal development and intellectual growth through typically small class sizes maintaining a low staff to student ratio, in line with the tutorial-based teaching methods employed by UCL globally. Constant student engagement on both a scholarly and extra-curricular level ensured a heightened learning experience, spurring every student towards discovering their true potential and realizing NGU’s goal of achieving truly unbounded thinking.

  • Program Summary

    As a student of medicine at NGU, you are sure to join an important and prestigious medical school, your degree will follow a six-and half year program (5 years for candidates applying Fall18/19). The program includes a series of ‘horizontal courses’ incorporating the vertical themes (e.g. scholarship and science, social determinants of health, patient safety, professionalism, use of medicines etc.). Student-selected components (SSCs) and electives in a variety of topics also form a compulsory part of the program.

    Learning:
    Through lectures, tutorials and small-group work, and laboratory classes. Later years will involve attachment to teams of consultants and doctors. You will be assessed by methods including single best answer questions, data interpretation and objective structured practical examinations, as well as objective structured clinical examinations supplemented with portfolios. The program integrates basic medical and clinical sciences using professional skills and competencies throughout the program.
    The integrated BSc enhances key generic skills including independent learning, critical thinking, scholarly writing, and scientific method. The undergraduate program MBBCh is followed by a 12-months internship (24 months for candidates applying Fall18/19) at an approved hospital.
