Education & Training

University Affiliations

Hammoud Hospital UMC has developed affiliations with various universities and medical schools both locally and internationally. These affiliations are promoting the training of a new generation of physicians, nurses, midwives, pharmacists, paramedics, and physical therapists.

The hospital teaching program initially was developed with the Lebanese University. In 1994 the Hospital welcomed the first medical residents. In 1999, Hammoud Hospital became the basic teaching hospital for medical students from the Beirut Arab University. Medical students from the Beirut Arab University spend 2 years of clinical learning and bedside training at the hospital. In July 2002 a residency program started with the Beirut Arab University. We currently have 80 fellows, residents and interns in the departments of Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Laboratory Medicine and Radiology. In 2004, the hospital signed an academic affiliation with George Washington University Medical Center in Washington DC. The hospital welcomes international students for clinical rotations in different specialties.

Nursing training also plays a prominent role in the hospital. In 1978, Hammoud Hospital formed an affiliation with the Saint Joseph University School of Nursing and we are the main teaching hospital for the new Beirut Arab University Nursing Program. In addition we play a part in the clinical training program of the Lebanese University School of Nursing.

The hospital also trains midwives, pharmacist, practical nurses, laboratory technicians, and physical therapists.
