Research and Education
In addition to providing patient-centered, integrated healthcare, FSHN also places education at the heart of its mission. We believe in the importance of providing professional development opportunities for our team, as well as healthcare professionals within the larger community. To support essential education and professional development within the local healthcare sector, FSHN offers a number of professional courses and certifications throughout the year, covering many different healthcare topics.
As a fundamental cornerstone of our institution and part of our core ethos, FSHN strives to be a regional hub for healthcare education and research. FSHN spearheads a number of clinical research efforts which focus on a myriad of healthcare issues in Kuwait in order to support evidence-based practice.
Our goal is to empower the local community with knowledge and education, and our aim is to garner a better understanding of the local healthcare landscape, in order to drive and inform highly specialized practice and develop the healthcare sector in Kuwait.
As with everything else we do, we implement an integrated, cross-disciplinary and collaborative approach when it comes to research. FSHN often works with like-minded institutions across the spectrum in Kuwait and around the globe, and we have a number of ongoing collaborations and partnerships with leading local and international education and healthcare institutes.
One of our key strategic partners in the area of research has been the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science (KFAS), which has played an instrumental role in funding and supporting many of our research efforts. Some of our international partners over the years have included Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, the University of Alberta, the University of Toronto, Duke University, and the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
FSHN welcomes collaboration with all research, education, and healthcare institutions on its various research projects, which address a range of different healthcare topics that are pertinent to Kuwait.
At FSHN, we are also firm believers in working with the local community and promoting a greater sense of health consciousness across the nation, and as such we are always happy to welcome volunteers to take part in our various research projects.
