Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), together with Hamad Medical Corp (HMC) and Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS), has finalized the process of bringing an 8th batch of Palestinian physicians to Qatar under the Amiri Medical Scholarship Program.
This academic year, 10 physicians from Gaza and the West Bank will come to Qatar to attend postgraduate studies for 4-5 years.
After that, each graduate will receive the Arab Board of Health Specializations (ABHS) certification from HMC.
The physicians from the West Bank will specialize in internal medicine (major: pulmonology), psychiatry, anesthetics & intensive care (major: pain management), radiology (major: conventional & interventional radiology), and general surgery (major: pediatric surgery).
Those coming from Gaza will study internal medicine (major: clinical hematology/oncology), internal medicine (major: rheumatology), pediatrics (major: Neonatology NICU), pediatrics (major: pediatric ICU/GI), and emergency medicine (major: trauma critical care).
Recently, the contracts were signed with the selected physicians, who will be soon traveling to Doha.
With this batch, the overall number of beneficiaries from this program since its inception in 2003 will rise to 72 physicians, to be added to 26 physicians who received their specialization studies in Jordan.
The signing ceremony was attended by Dr Khaled Gouda, General Director of PRCS, Dr Haytham al-Hassan, member of the program's advisory committee in the West Bank, and Zeina Hamoud, representative of QRCS in the West Bank and Al Quds. This program is part of QRCS's capacity-building strategy for the health sector in Palestine, to fill the gap in well-trained medical professionals.
