Bahrain will host the 2023 Arabian Gulf University medical education conference “Towards Future Doctors: Innovations and Prospects” today. This year’s conference will focus on technological medical advancements for professionals in a post-Covid environment including AI, telemedicine and virtual reality analysis.
Dire political landscapes, repatriation of professionals and high migrant worker populations continue to cause Gulf nations healthcare concerns. Normalization of Bahrain-Israel relations in 2020 brought increased medicinal infrastructure and technology development despite lagging health education. Bahrain recently began the redevelopment of its national hospital, the King Hamad American Mission Hospital, to cater for interoperability and digital innovation with Israel’s Shebe Medical Centre.
It is likely this year’s conference will inform governments of the significance of medical education integrity and promote the growing recognition of technological advancement in the medical industry. As Manama is a medical hub in the Gulf, it is probable Bahrain and its neighbours will begin additional infrastructure projects as Gulf nations simultaneously re-evaluate raw fuel dependency and enter the tourism, tech, and medicinal markets. This year’s conference will foster stronger relations not only with Israel, but also with the UAE and Saudi Arabia given their shared healthcare issues and willingness to transition to other economic securities.
