Chancellor of MBRU

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chancellor of Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU), appointed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, by decree no. 22 for 2016.


His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum focuses his leadership on developing a world class foundation in healthcare by providing an innovative academic environment for our students to become healthcare professionals of tomorrow.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum leads MBRU in uplifting the standards of healthcare education and research in the UAE and the region to reverse the trend of seeking medical education overseas.

The UAE’s health sector advancement is closely tied to increasing access to quality medical education. Part of the country’s wider development strategy is to work towards a sustainable and innovative healthcare system with qualified workforce. As the Chancellor of MBRU, I see great potential in the university’s role in achieving these goals and strengthening the global healthcare value chain. The MBRU and its students are partners in the UAE’s commitment to build healthcare capacity and enhance its healthcare system.
