Student Training

Primary Teaching Facility

Sidra Medical and Research Center has an integral role to play in the education of students from Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q), a leading medical school located in Education City.

Cornell University, a member of the prestigious Ivy League in the U.S., has brought its top notch medical program to Qatar, along with a distinguished faculty to provide the finest education possible for medical students in the country.

Sidra will be a primary teaching facility for WCMC-Q, providing students with the opportunity to develop their clinical skills and participate in cutting-edge biomedical research in the state-of-the-art facility.

Hands-on experience in clinical care is integral to the four-year medical program and, guided by WCMC-Q faculty, students will be able to gain essential experience at Sidra as well as in the facilities of Hamad Medical Corporation. The breadth and depth of services provided by these two entities will ensure that medical students benefit from the full range of learning opportunities and are well prepared to become Qatar’s next generation of physicians.
