Enrichment Programs in 2015

The Enrichment Programs at WCM-Q are designed to provide youth an opportunity to further explore their intellectual curiosity in a college setting. Students engage in challenging and interactive activities focused on making learning fun. The programs are facilitated by our pre-medical and medical faculty and recent graduates in our facilities in the Education City.

The Enrichment Programs are offered twice a year, in the winter and the summer.

Qatar Medical Explorer Program (QMEP) – Summer Session

The Medical Explorer Program offered students with a two-week experience on campus. The program took place from June 28 to July 9. The program offered:

  • Career counseling and personal development workshops that allowed students to formulate a clearer picture about their interests, strengths, and areas that needed improvement
  • A glimpse of how to get into college and how to prepare for college requirements. Students worked on developing a personal statement and attended practice college admissions-type interviews.
  • An idea about college life with emphasis on being a college student through a series of college presentations, clinical skills workshops and problem-based learning sessions.

Pre-college Enrichment Program (PCEP)  Summer Session
