ScholarRx Brick Builder Grant Awarded to Dr. Miral, Anatomist

Dr. Miral Salama, Assistant Professor of Anatomy won the Brick Builder Grant applied to ScholarRx, a creator of the popular USMLE-Rx study tools, an Innovative Digital Learning Platform and a leading provider of accessible, sustainable medical education solutions for medical schools worldwide.


Dr. Miral strongly believes that Anatomy is related to mastery of radiological skills. She said, “A certain level of knowledge related to radiological anatomy is mandatory for a competent physician and this is almost ignored during developing the medical curriculum”. Pointing to a gap in the medical curriculum, she proposed constructing eight Bricks under the theme “Radiological Anatomy” to provide a resource to fill the void. Her proposal got the deserved recognition by ScholarRx, as it will be a significant contribution to knowledge, sharable among medical sciences educators and students worldwide.

Her achievement was commended by Prof. Hossam Hamdy, Chancellor of GMU. “This shall be considered as an innovation and scholarship of education” said Prof. Manda Venkatramana, Dean College of Medicine and Vice-chancellor Academics profusely congratulating her and wishing her the very best.

College of Medicine has subscribed to ScholarRx, an online resource since the last 3 years which has largely benefitted the students from the MBBS program and enabled them to learn and take high-stake exams confidently.
