Doha: More than 250 participants, including teachers, school counsellors, high school students, and parents attended this year's edition of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar's (WCM-Q) High School Medical Conference (HSMC) that was hosted on campus by the Office of Student Outreach and Educational Development.
The conference brought together highly motivated students, aspiring to become the next generation of medical leaders, generated interest in pursuing a career in medicine, and offered a glimpse into life as a WCM-Q medical student. It also provided a valuable platform to engage educators across the entire spectrum of STEM disciplines.
The one-day event featured professional development workshops on several topics, including steps towards a complete application, reading and writing expectations in pre-med, personal statement writing tips, and illusions of learning and how to make the learning stick.
In addition, a research competition allowed students to demonstrate their ability to understand and communicate complex information through a poster presentation on a research topic under the overarching themes of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
WCM-Q's 'Medicine Unlimited' fair once again lined the building's academic wing and offered prospective students and their families a first-hand glimpse into the buzzing academic and student life at the college. WCM-Q faculty, researchers, and students were also on hand to share their medical knowledge through a series of simulations and demonstrations.
