Every year, Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar opens its doors for a big annual recruitment fair, which offers high school students and their families a glimpse of science and medicine and the possibility of a career in healthcare.
This interactive public event introduces prospective students and their families to WCM-Q faculty, who share simulations and demonstrations that review the workings of genes, molecules and the human body.
At tables lining the academic wing, faculty members and WCM-Q students share their knowledge of medical science with the high school students. The main purpose of this science fair is to provide students with first-hand experience and showcase the buzzing academic and student life at the medical college.
A quiz is organized at the end of the event and allows students to test their knowledge and win prizes.
