- World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH)
and expands its international collaborations to include:
| Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) |
An MoU was signed between QU and HMC in 2015 to support collaboration in the areas of education, clinical research, cross appointment, joint outreach activities, continuing professional development programs, training, preceptorships and clerkships as well as scholarships and sponsorship for students. The agreement also covers joint governance including joint committees and the appointment of research and clerkship coordinators, as well as cooperation on establishing a multiparty graduate program in medical sciences, developing PhD programs in various health-related disciplines, and creating a university hospital model in line with international best practices.
Primary Healthcare Corporation (PHCC)
Beside the health care services delivery and under PHCC leadership, the Family Medicine Training Program is up running academic training to medical residents for 4 years that is recently accredited on international level (ACGME) in addition to the training of interns and medical students from WCMC-Q and CMED.
Academic Health System (AHS)
AHS is a joint initiative that partners healthcare providers, medical research institutes, and universities, integrating clinical practice, education and research across the country’s entire healthcare industry. The College of Medicine is a core partner in this system.
World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH)
Qatar University is one of the partners in this project that is a clear representation of Qatar’s ongoing commitment to raising the standards of healthcare nationally and internationally, and where a distinguished audience of decision-makers and influencers from across the world convene to discuss practical, lasting and innovative solutions to global healthcare challenges. This high-profile event, which was the successor to 2012’s Global Health Policy Summit in London, brought together heads of state, ministers, senior government officials, academics, and influential business leaders.
An MoU was signed between QU College of Medicine and Maastricht University in October 2015.
An agreement was signed on May 2016 between CMED and the Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to establish collaboration in education and faculty/student exchange.
CMED signed a Professional Consulting Services Agreement on May 2016 with National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), an independent, not-for-profit US-based organization that serves the public through its high-quality assessments of healthcare professionals. Through this agreement, NBME will support the College in aligning its standards with those of the US by leveraging CMED’s student assessment system, supporting the establishment of a CMED student examination items bank, and by conducting regional benchmarking studies on test design.
