Twenty-four pre-medical students at Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar (WCM-Q) were recently honoured for their academic success by being inducted onto the Dean’s Honors List.
Each student achieved a 3.75 grade point average during the Spring term, meaning they could be inducted on to the honours list of Dr Javaid Sheikh, Dean of WCM-Q. In addition, six students from the college’s Foundation Program were also recognised for their academic work, having also achieved GPAs of 3.75 or more.
Congratulating all the students on their academic achievement, Dr Sheikh said:
I am delighted to be here once again to applaud the hard work and dedication shown by all of you. Achieving an academic score of this caliber is no mean achievement and is testament to the quality of students enrolled at Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar.’
Two Dean’s Honors Lists are published each academic year to record the achievements of students in the fall and spring semesters, an initiative that began with the fall 2011 semester and has since become a WCM-Q tradition.
The students inducted to the Dean’s Honors List for the spring 2015 semester are: Chandrakumaran Abivarma, Huda Alalami, Said Alnajjar, Fatema Al-Wahshi, Tina Bharani, Welathanthrige Botheju, Farah Bshesh, Nada Darwish, Syeda Razia Haider, Merna Hussien, Gi Eun Kim, Menatalla Mekhaimar, Suresh Menik Arachchige, Priyamvada Pillai, Haneen Qadourah, Ahmed Daniyaal Rasheed, Cleo Zarina Reyes, Sherin Sallam, Zaid Shahrori, Mohamed Soliman, Aya Tabbalat, Tarek Taha, Sharan Yadav and Aya Youssef.
