Qatar college hosts recruitment fair
Doha, December 2, 2013
Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar conducted its flagship student recruitment event ‘Medicine Unlimited’ recently.
Middle and high school students and their families visited WCMC-Q for the annual fair, which offered the chance to discover the college’s facilities, take part in interactive demonstrations and learn about careers in medicine.
Visiting students and parents met with faculty, current students and staff who shared hands-on simulations demonstrating a variety of medical concepts from stalls set up at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) Student Center.
There were a total of 20 stalls, with subjects ranging from transplant surgery, anatomy, neurology, pediatrics and research, to physics, chemistry, biology and pathology.
The event also featured a stall where prospective students could find information about WCMC-Q’s Foundation Programme, to learn about its content and meet with some of the current students. English writing, library and admissions faculty and staff were also represented.
Hamad Medical Corporation and Qatar Diabetes Association attended the event to offer free health screenings to parents and adult participants.
WCMC-Q awards its graduates a US-accredited MD degree, and is the only university outside the US to do so. In addition to the four-year medical programme, it also offers a two-year pre-medical programme.
Dr Rachid Bendriss, assistant dean for Student Recruitment, Outreach and Foundation Programmes, said: “This is the sixth year we have showcased WCMC-Q’s world-class facilities and programmes to the public with the Medicine Unlimited event, which continues to foster the strong relationship between the college and the wider community.” - TradeArabia News Service
