Mark Soubiran said choosing Dubai to be home for the first of its kind in the Middle East training centre, aims to complement the emirate’s and the country’s growing reputation as major international hubs for the global healthcare industry.
"It follows an extensive study of the region’s markets, which revealed that Dubai and the UAE are one of the most attractive healthcare markets due to advanced legislative system and laws,"
