Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) has honoured 43 high-achieving students by recording their names on the Dean’s Honours List.
The students’ hard work was recognised at a dinner in their honour. To appear on the Dean’s Honours List, each student has had to achieve an average GPA of 3.75 or higher in either the Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 semesters.
Dr Javaid Sheikh, dean of WCM-Q, invited the students on stage to receive a commemorative gift, and paid tribute to their commitment to their studies.
Dr Sheikh said, “Everyone on this list should feel extremely proud of what they have achieved. Academic success requires hard work, perseverance and focus and I am sure your professors, family and friends are as impressed as I am at your dedication to your studies. You all have very bright futures ahead of you.”
The students, along with an audience of faculty, staff, family and friends, heard from Dr Tania Jaber, an alumna of WCM-Q who graduated in 2011.
Dr Jaber said, “Be humbled by what you know but more importantly by what you do not know. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and don’t be afraid to answer them. To look for the answers. To devise the experiment, the research study, the protocol. You will be surprised where it may take you.”
