Sidra Medical and Research Center (Sidra) has announced its National Development Programs for 2016. The programs include education grants, internships and job shadowing opportunities.
Sidra’s Education Grant and Graduate Associate programs are set up specifically to encourage Qataris to take up careers in clinical medicine, and prepare them for roles at Sidra. The Education Grant program makes funding available to Qatari students studying in clinical fields from approved local and international universities. The Graduate Associate program offers graduates who have successfully finished their education grant-supported study to join Sidra for different career opportunities.
Dr. Eiman Al-Ansari, Executive Director of Learning and Development, and Director of National Development at Sidra, said: “Our programs are developed to give mentorship and career guidance opportunities to nationals and motivate them to take up key roles in the healthcare sector. We are looking for ambitious, dynamic youth who share our commitment to transforming healthcare in Qatar and the region.”
Following the success of the job shadowing program with the Bedaya Center last year, Sidra has continued its partnership by launching two such programs this year. The program aims to provide an opportunity for high school students to work and shadow a Sidra employee for a day. More than 16 students were mentored by department leads at Sidra including Communications, Recruitment, and the Simulation Center in January. The second job shadowing program will take place in August 2016.
