Sidra Medicine represents the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser who serves as its Chairperson. This high-tech facility not only provides world-class patient care, but also helps build Qatar’s scientific expertise and resources.
Nearly 1,000 nurses, over 300 doctors and approaching 800 allied healthcare professionals and other support staff are poised and ready to deliver optimal care for those who need specialist expertise.
Sidra Medicine is also part of a dynamic research and education environment in Qatar and through strong partnerships with leading institutions around the world, we are creating an intellectual ecosystem to help advance scientific discovery through investment in medical research.
Based in Education City and as an entity of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), Sidra Medicine is part of a dynamic research and education environment. Education City includes leading international institutions such as Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, Georgetown University, Carnegie Mellon University, and HEC Paris as well as recently established national research centers like Qatar Biomedical Research Institute and Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute.
We work closely with academic partners like Weill-Cornell Medicine in Qatar (WCM-Q) and Qatar University (QU) as well as other health and research institutions like Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) and Qatar Biobank in regard to all three missions – raising the standard of healthcare throughout the country and providing valuable opportunities for research and learning.
Sidra Medicine is a state-of-the-art facility committed to providing women and children in Qatar with world-class tertiary healthcare services. We are here for healthier and happier families.
Education City was born of the concept that education is the key to a nation’s future. Qatar has been blessed with many natural resources, but none as vital as our people. The universities and projects that populate Education City are therefore essential building blocks for us.
We have brought to Qatar leading degree programs in engineering, business administration, computer science, design, foreign service, and medicine – all disciplines that are critical to our ability to sustain the many advances we are making. And there are more universities to come.
The addition of Sidra Medicine to Education City is perhaps our most ambitious and far-reaching project to date. Not only will it allow our medical students to learn in one of the finest and most technologically advanced facilities anywhere, but it will provide healthcare of the highest global standards to the people of Qatar and the Gulf region.
As a fundamental element of its design, it will provide specialty care for women and children to help nurture and protect our families – the heart of our culture. Moreover, Sidra Medicine's biomedical research center will open a significant new chapter in Qatar’s history, allowing us to contribute to the discovery of scientific knowledge in regard to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other serious illnesses that afflict people here and around the world.
