Courses taught in the pre-medical program are comprised of the sciences basic to medicine including biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics, in addition to English, medical ethics and psychology. The medical program, which replicates the curriculum taught at WCMC, features a variety of learning experiences including problem-based learning, case-based conferences, journal clubs, laboratory sessions and clinical experiences.
Members of the faculty whose names appear in this section are those who have committed to WCMC-Q on a long-term basis, i.e., more than a year, and reside in Qatar. The names of faculty based at WCMC-Q can be found here. They are supplemented by faculty based at WCMC, who travel to Qatar for short periods, following delivery of their subject matter in New York. The schedule of classes at WCMC-Q lags the schedule in New York by two weeks to permit this integrated teaching to occur. The names of visiting faculty can be found here.
WCMC-Q faculty are also supplemented by physicians at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and ASPETAR - Qatar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital who have received faculty appointments at the appropriate clinical department of WCMC in New York. These faculty provide a valued role in supporting the College’s mission in Qatar by overseeing the clinical education of WCMC-Q students rotating through HMC and ASPETAR. Current HMC-based faculty can be found here. ASPETAR-based faculty can be found here.
