The department of Pediatrics at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), in partnership with Mayo Clinic, Abu Dhabi, provides advanced treatments for a spectrum of conditions that could impede children's growth from infancy to adolescence.
We specialize in dealing with common and highly critical conditions and ensure children will grow healthy.
Knowing how critical childhood is to human development and how it profoundly affects children's future physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development, providing efficient and effective treatment is a priority for us.
For that reason, we have seven fully-fledged divisions led by a team of multidisciplinary and board-certified experts who provide multifaceted treatments, as well as specialized facilities to cater to a variety of cases, including intensive care units for infants and children.
At SSMC, we strive for excellence; it was a driving force in establishing a department that lays a solid medical foundation to foster healthy and happy growth in children. We integrate care, kindness, and a sense of playfulness in our interaction with children to maintain their high spirits as they visit our facilities and receive the required treatment.
Care of the Critically Ill Surgical Patient (CCrISP) is a two-day, interactive course, which includes mandatory, pre-course e-learning. It covers the practical skills and knowledge that health care professionals need to effectively care for surgical patients, including those who are deteriorating or at risk of doing so.
