Twenty-eight high school students completed the Qatar Aspiring Doctors Program (QADP), run by Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar (WCM-Q) and designed to show promising high school students a window into life as a college student. The year-long programme also provided them with insight into what life would be like as a physician. 

A total of 35 students enrolled in the programme and 28 have now completed it, receiving certificates at a special ceremony at WCM-Q. The students come from a total of 16 schools and 27 are Qatari.

Razan Al Mousawi, who currently attends Qatar International School, was one of those who completed the QADP. The 18-year-old, who has applied to join WCM-Q’s six-year integrated medical programme in September, said the programme has been hugely beneficial and very enjoyable.

Participating schools include Michael Debakey High School, Al Wakra Secondary School for Girls, Ali Bin Jassim Mohammed Al Thani Independent School, The Gulf English School, Al Maha Academy for Girls, Qatar Academy, Al Bayan Secondary School for Girls, Amna Bint Wahab Secondary School for Girls, AlKawther Secondary Girls School, Omar bin Al Khattab Independent School, International School of London-Qatar, Tariq Bin Ziyad Independent School for Boys, The Cambridge School, Aljazeera Academy, Qatar International School and American School of Doha.
