The NIR School of the Heart is a comprehensive experiential program aimed at enriching the academic, cultural, social and personal development of promising teenagers throughout the Middle East. Our select group of students is offered a top-quality interactive education in the medical sciences with an emphasis on cardiology, provided by world-class experts and with access to first-rate facilities.
By engaging curious young minds from several nationalities in a multi-cultural educational environment, the program aims to encourage the students to communicate and share their knowledge with one another and propagate that knowledge and spirit within their home communities. The NIR School looks forward to seeing its graduates become positive contributors to society and hopes to play a constructive role in deepening cross-border social and professional relationships both today and in the future. A large percentage of our graduates pursue academic careers; approximately 30% have chosen medical related studies.
When accepted to the NIR School, the students are expected to serve their own community by volunteering in a place of thier choice for at least 60 hours.
This provides the students with a potentially life changing experience, which allows them to better understand themselves in the process while changing for the better.
Given the experience of the social and academic programs in the NIR School and the volunteer work in their home communities, we are proud that our graduates continue their commitment to peace and equality in their personal and professional lives.
