National Development at Sidra

To inspire and cultivate the development of Qataris and the development of the healthcare sector in Qatar

Sidra Medical and Research Center has a diverse workforce that collaborates in a professional environment to achieve our vision of transforming health care for children and women in Qatar and beyond.

Sidra is committed to Qatar’s National Vision 2030 and National Health Strategy to integrate Qataris – whether students, graduates or skilled – into our workforce, and providing them with opportunity and enrichment.

The national development strategy at Sidra identifies, recruits and develops Qatar’s future generation in the organization. The team’s focus is the development of competent and qualified Qatari males and females to be future healthcare leaders at Sidra.

Sidra National Development

Strategy 2.0

In 2017, under the leadership of Dr. Kholode Al Obaidli, the Chief Learning Officer, Sidra launched its National Development Strategy 2.0.

Sidra is committed to investing in the growth and development of our future Qatari healthcare professionals and leaders as part of our National Development Strategy 2.0.

The strategy is a clear affirmation in support of Qatar’s National Vision 2030 and the country’s national health strategies.

Sidra has customised its national development as well as learning and development programs to ensure that Qatari students sponsored by Sidra as well as employees at all levels are given access to the right training tools, mentorship programs and learning opportunities to advance their careers in healthcare.

Scholarship and Graduate Associate Programs
