About our Faculty

Faculty at WCM-Q are committed to training the next generation of physicians and scientists to become passionate practitioners of medicine and innovative thinkers who make novel discoveries in clinical, translational, and basic research across a wide range of medical disciplines. In the selection of faculty, significant consideration is given to their potential as role models for the future leaders of academic medicine whom they will train. 

Our faculty are dedicated to the achievement of excellence in the education of the physicians and biomedical scientists of the future, as well as those currently in practice, and to the highest standards of leadership in research, patient care, education, and community service. They represent a diverse global community, which translates into one of the strongest global health education programs in the region.

Faculty based in Qatar are supported by visiting faculty from Weill Cornell Medical College in New York (WCMC) and Cornell University (CU) who travel to Qatar for short periods of time to assist in the delivery of their subject matter.

Faculty at affiliate hospitals and institutions play a valued role in supporting WCM-Q’s mission by overseeing the clinical education of WCM-Q students and contributing to our research programs. These physicians, who remain employed by their own institutions, have volunteered to provide hands-on clinical training to WCM-Q students, as well as to offer advice and encouragement to guide the young trainee doctors as they take their first steps in the world of medicine.

Whether directly employed by WCM-Q or one of our affiliated institutions, all faculty members hold a faculty appointment in New York at either WCMC or CU. The same standards for appointment and promotion apply to all faculty.
