Endowed Professorships

An Endowed Professorship is one of the most eminent awards conferred on accomplished academics. In collaboration with the local universities, a total of nine professorships have been established with the aim of elevating the state of research and clinical training for medical specialists. They serve not only as a recognition of the importance and achievement of dedicated clinicians in different specialties but also the Hospital’s commitment to promoting advanced scientific research and patient care.
