The Pre-Medicine Bridge Program is designed to provide courses to current students who have completed a bachelor’s degree. The educational goals of the program are to prepare students for entry into Khalifa University’s Doctor of Medicine (MD) program.

The Pre-Medicine Bridge program consists of courses that are delivered by a lecturer in person or online. As each student attending the program will come with their unique skill-set and knowledge, the courses are designed to fill gaps in information as well as develop reading, comprehension, and math proficiencies. By developing these skills, the program will establish whether a candidate can demonstrate advanced knowledge, and in doing so, fulfill the requirements of entry into a postgraduate medical program. Students will be assessed using the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT®).
