Gulf Times Community - - COVER STORY -

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.”

The Dean’s Hon­our List usu­ally only fea­tures stu­dents on WCM-Q’s Six-Year Med­i­cal Pro­gramme, but this year two stu­dents in­clud­ing Maryam al-Qu­radaghi and Tala Abu Sa­maan, made it onto the list for their aca­demic per­for­mance on the WCM-Q Foun­da­tion Pro­gramme.
