The project, which the ministry had launched with the Thumbay Group a year ago, was made official with the signing of several memoranda during the recent visit of Minister Sarcevic and representatives of the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Health.
In the first project phase, the Thumbay Group would use the hospitals of the Belgrade Clinical Centre and the Medical Faculty in Belgrade as education bases, and in the second phase, they would start building their own clinic, Sarcevic explained.
The minister pointed out that the arrival of Thumbay Group to Serbia was a great opportunity for young experts from Serbia to find jobs at the new university.
According to him, their salaries would be excellent, which would motivate them to stay in the country and develop their careers, plus the project will improve the quality of healthcare in Serbia.
Sarcevic added that Thumbay Group had several clinics with university centres in the UAE, India and South Africa.
Thumbay Group is known for its innovative approach to medicine, both in medical education and treatment methods, Sarcevic pointed out and added that Serbia was the first country in Europe that the Group invested in.
