The Institute for Population Health (IPH) at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) recently launched a new Certificate in Population Health and Well-Being for healthcare professionals interested to learn more about public health and enhancing people’s physical, mental and social well-being.

The certificate programme is a 60-hour multidisciplinary and collaborative course that provides training in five domains of population health and well-being:

  • Health and disease paradigm, population health and preventive medicine
  • Health quantitative sciences and evidence
  • Healthcare systems and delivery
  • The burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases
  • Optimising healthcare: what more can we do?

Contemporary and emerging topics such as planetary health, digital health, sustainability, and crisis management will also be integrated into the discussions.

Delivered in hybrid form, with both in-person and online components, the course was designed to be highly interactive, fea­turing a mixture of lectures, seminar discussions, case-based studies, panel discussions, and Q&A ses­sions. The course will be directed by Dr Ravinder Mamtani and Dr Sohaila Cheema.

The course is scheduled to take place next year, on 21 and 28 January and on 4, 11, 17, and 18 February.

To register for the programme, please contact [email protected] before 5 January 2023. Visit the WCM-Q website at for more details.
