Doha: HEC Paris in Qatar and Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, both partner universities of Qatar Foundation, have successfully hosted the second module of the new Executive Education program in Healthcare Management and Policy.

They jointly designed the program to help drive excellence in healthcare provision in Qatar and across the region by integrating systems-level management expertise with a deep understanding of medical care.

The program fully leveraged the combined expertise of HEC Paris, ranked #1 in Executive Education Worldwide in the Financial Times Rankings 2022, and Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, part of the Ivy League Cornell University and one of the most respected and highly rated medical research centres in the Gulf region.

It highlights the value of collaboration between institutions at Education City, aligned with the new Qatar Foundation multiversity strategy. The five-day module was the final of two in the program, with the first having taken place in New York. 

The program attracted a mix of clinicians and non-clinicians, healthcare executives and policymakers, and private sector support service companies. Among the participants, several prominent actors of Qatar's health system were represented, including Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Sidra Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, and Qatar University. 

“This program is of particular relevance for healthcare professionals working within the delivery ecosystem across the country as it provides tools and ideas for the successful implementation of the strategic priorities in the healthcare sector,” said Dr. Pablo Martin de Holan, Dean, HEC Paris in Qatar. 

Dr. Javaid Sheikh, Dean, Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar, commented:“This program provides a wealth of opportunities for participants to interact closely with faculty and peers across these interlinked sectors, enabling them to draw detailed and accurate insights about the strategic imperatives required to allow Qatar to continue to push global standards in healthcare ever higher.”

The program also featured several sessions from high-profile guest speakers, including Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Hamad Al Thani, Director of Public Health Department at Ministry of Public Health; Dr. Abdulla Ali Asad Al Ansari, Chief Medical Officer of Hamad Medical Corporation; Joseph G. Otayek, Medical Director of the American University of Beirut Medical Centre; and Somesh Chandra, CEO - Employee Benefits of AXA Domestic Markets. 
Sheikh Dr. Al Thani appraised the program as preparing high-calibre healthcare professionals to lead Qatar's future healthcare transformation, which is aligned with the country's 2030 vision. 

Dr. Al Ansari stated:“I am happy to see that participating physicians from HMC will be able to acquire new management and leadership skills, which will enrich our institution with clinicians who think beyond clinical practice.”
