WCM-Q recognises outstanding achievements of students
Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) recently recognised the outstanding academic achievements of thirty-six students by inducting them on Dean’s Honour List 2018.
To be included on the Dean’s Honour List, students must have achieved an Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.75 or higher. Speaking at the ceremony, Dr Javaid Sheikh, Dean of WCM-Q, said, “To achieve a GPA of 3.75 across an entire semester demands not only great talent but also absolute dedication to one’s studies over a prolonged period of time. I hope you will each take a moment to enjoy this remarkable accomplishment, and also to give thanks to the family members, friends, faculty and staff who have supported you to help make this moment possible.”
While addressing the audience, Dr Karima Becetti, Consultant Rheumatologist at Hamad Medical Corporation, said, “Congratulations to all of you on this incredible achievement. You have worked hard, shown a high level of scholarship and determination, and earned yourself the honour of making it onto the Dean’s List. Most importantly, you have proved to yourself and everyone else that you have the necessary sturdy foundation for a successful career in medicine. I have no doubt that you are ready to take on the challenges of what comes ahead and will excel as medical students and future doctors.”
Haya al-Taweel, a first-year medical student, said, “When I heard I had made it to the Dean’s Honour List, I was so happy and excited. Good time management and occasionally interacting with my professors have really been the key for me through the semester. I’m really pleased that my hard work has paid off.”
