The accreditation recognizes the quality and value of programs being offered by WCMC-Q for physicians and healthcare practitioners across the country.

In order to gain accreditation, the Division of Continuing Professional Development, led by Dr. Thurayya Arayssi, Associate Dean of CPD, produced a 500-page self-assessment that provided evidence that WCMC-Q could deliver an effective and efficient education program for existing healthcare practitioners. The QCHP Accreditation Department also conducted a site visit, assessing the college’s resources and faculty qualifications.

It is expected that, WCMC-Q will provide a wide variety of educational activities to meet the needs of healthcare practitioners in Qatar and the region. WCMC-Q has already held several educational programs including its recently launched multidisciplinary Grand Rounds series of lectures, which are aimed at healthcare professionals featuring talks from world-renowned experts.
