WCMC-Q picks students for research program
Doha, October 5, 2011
Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) said it has started recruitment of Qatari graduate students for a major biomedical research training programme which begins next year.
WCMC-Q, a partnership between Cornell University and Qatar Foundation, offers an innovative educational program that includes a two-year premedical program followed by a four-year medical program leading to the MD degree from Cornell University.
The program is fully funded by the college in partnership with the Qatar Science Leadership Program.
This is a golden opportunity for the students to work alongside world-class researchers using cutting edge facilities, the Qatar college said in a statement.
'Qatari college graduates with degrees related to biomedical or biological sciences, who are interested in a career in biomedical research either as a bench scientist, a clinician or a research administrator are welcome to attend the session,' the statement added.
The Office of Research Administration will be holding an information session on Thursday at WCMC-Q in this connection.
The next session for the training program begins in January next year and consists of a six-month, full-time training period. Upon completion of the program, trainees will also receive a graduation certificate, said the WCMC-Q statement.
During the training programme, the students will be given a stipend as part of a comprehensive compensation package.
Kawthar Al-Dabhani, a biochemistry research graduate from Buffalo University NY who completed the 2011 program said, 'The program gave me hands on experience of what it is like working on real biomedical research projects.'
'This has been an invaluable experience in helping me decide how best to progress my career,' she added.-TradeArabia News Service
