WCMC-Q inducts 27 students to honors list
Doha, November 8, 2012
Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) recently inducted 27 high achieving pre-medical students on the Dean's Honors List at a ceremony in Education City.
Students who successfully earned a 3.75 GPA or higher in the Spring 2012 term were selected on academic merit to receive the award. It was only the second time in the 10-year history of WCMC-Q that high achieving students were inducted to the Dean’s Honors List.
“I am delighted to applaud the exceptional performance of these students as they are recognized for this significant academic honor,” said WCMC-Q dean Dr Javaid Sheikh, who presented the awards.
“The Dean’s Honors List reflects the high caliber of WCMC-Q’s student body and it is the legacy of our endeavours to provide a stimulating medical program in a world-class environment.
“These young men and women have demonstrated an outstanding level of work to achieve this honor and their commitment and talent is inspiring to all at WCMC-Q. We are proud to support them and help them achieve their undoubtedly remarkable potential,” he added.
The Dean’s Honors List is now a bi-annual annual event on WCMC-Q’s academic calendar in recognition of dedication, hard work and high achievements by students.
In his keynote address, associate professor of Chemistry in the Pre-Medical Program Dr James Roach said: “We can through hard work and diligence increase our knowledge and hone our talents into skills that make the world a better place. Or through laziness and indifference, we can destroy our God-given potential.”
“In medicine, you have chosen a career through which your exceptional talents can profoundly enrich the lives of others. But don’t rest on the laurels of just talent alone … hone it, perfect it; get the absolute most out of your abilities. The extent of your talent will only be truly realized through dedication to your craft,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
