External Medical Affairs (EMA)
AUBMC is committed to the establishment of strategic partnerships and collaborations locally, regionally, and internationally.
In order to be the leading medical institution in Lebanon and the region, AUBMC will have to be the institution of choice for partnership and collaboration in the region. AUBMC’s commitment to capacity building, locally and regionally, is unmatched by any other institution in the Middle East. AUBMC brings the highest standards of clinical care, education, and research found in North American institutions with an understanding of the regional culture, language, and environment.
Over the past two years, these partnerships have offered AUBMC the opportunity to cater to its patients at various sites, to care for new patients at these hospitals, as well as to share complementary diagnostic services and equipment. Furthermore, these partnerships allow AUBMC to cater to patient populations that have limited access to AUBMC and are important for our training programs. To date, over 1,000 admissions have been made to these partnering hospitals.Mission
