Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) alumni and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) doctors participated in a comprehensive training to boost their leadership and mentoring skills.

A total of 16 physicians completed the internationally-recognised ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership and Management Programme, delivered over the course of seven days at the HBKU Student Centre.

The participants took workshops on subjects such as management and leadership styles, performance management, decision-making, and presentation and communication skills. The training, delivered by UK firm Leadership Focus, also featured modules on managing change, emotional intelligence, influencing and assertiveness skills, and coaching and mentoring skills.

This was the second cohort of 16 WCM-Q alumni and HMC physicians to complete the course, with another group of 16 to complete the training in December – a total of 48 doctors working in Qatar will have been equipped with enhanced leadership skills.

The course, coordinated jointly by the WCM-Q Office of Alumni Affairs and the Office of the Chief Medical Officer at HMC, concluded with a closing ceremony and certificate presentation. For more information, visit qatar-weill.cornell.edu
