UPMC at Arab Health 2009

To further our goal of bringing world-class health care, advanced technologies, and innovative management skills to the international community, UPMC participated in Arab Health 2009, held in Dubai in January. With more than 2,000 exhibitors and approximately 60,000 visitors, the conference is the largest health care forum in the Middle East. UPMC staffed a booth, and ICSD staff activities were focused on providing information about UPMC international operations in Europe and the Middle East, including hospital management, information technology (IT), translational science, national security, and strategic/commercial product development.

Arab Health 2009 offered an opportunity to investigate new business leads and to present extensive job possibilities in various fields. Plans for the UPMC-GE joint venture to develop international oncology centers in Europe and the Middle East were discussed. A press release detailing the plans to develop the international cancer centers was distributed Jan. 29 in Dubai and received good media coverage from local websites, national radio (ARN), and the Gulf Times (Qatar).

Two UPMC physicians made presentations: Ferenc Gyulai, MD, director of neurosurgical anesthesia, Department of Anesthesiology, UPMC, presented “Novel Challenges for the Neuroanesthesiologist: Expanded Endonasal Neurosurgical Approaches;” and Robert Rhee, MD, associate professor of surgery, director of clinical operations, Division of Vascular Surgery, UPMC, presented “Current State of the Art of EVAR: Device-Specific Applications and the Future.”
