Third Year - Phase II

2017-18 Academic Calendar
2018-19 Academic Calendar

Starting in early May, Phase II fully immerses students in the clinical curriculum as they rotate through the various clerkships, which cover all of the major clinical fields, including anesthesia and critical care, internal medicine, primary care, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery. Each clerkship lasts between three and eight weeks.

Students receive on-campus training in WCM-Q’s Clinical Skills and Simulation Lab but undertake the majority of their clinical training at WCM-Q clinical affiliates, which include Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), a full-service, Joint Commission International-accredited institution with more than 2,500 beds. HMC is comprised of multiple facilities and several community hospitals, including specialist women’s, children’s, psychiatric and rehabilitation hospitals. Students are also assigned to one or more of the many primary health care centers operating in the country, all of which are overseen by the Primary Health Care Corporation of Qatar.

WCM-Q students also benefit from opportunities to complete rotations at our affiliate, Aspetar, Qatar’s specialized Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility that provides the best possible medical treatment for sports-related injuries. Another affiliated training site for our students is Qatar Foundation’s Sidra Medicine, a highly innovative, ultramodern facility designed to provide comprehensive patient-focused medical services for women and children in Qatar and throughout the region.
