Focus on quality healthcare in the region
Doha, June 27, 2013
International experts met with representatives of healthcare institutions across the Middle East in Doha recently, to discuss about the regional certification of physician specialists to promote high-quality health care in the region.
The meet was collaborated by Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q), a member of the Qatar Foundation, and ABMS International, LLC (ABMS-I), a subsidiary of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), and focused on partnering to develop physician specialty assessment in internal medicine, pediatrics and emergency medicine for regional certification, said a statement.
The experts and representatives initially met in September 2012, to launch plans to introduce new standards of excellence in physician certification in the region.
Following that meeting, the Qatar Foundation and ABMS-I signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) to develop a Planning Grant Agreement, which will establish the basis for the development and administration of ABMS-I examinations for the three specialties.
The recent meeting focused on understanding areas of concordance and difference between the practices of medicine in the region for the three specialties, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
