Dr. Mohamed Ghaith Al Kuwari, Acting Director General, Aspetar, and Dr. Ayman El-Kadi, Dean, College of Pharmacy, Qatar University, signed the agreement that will provide experiential activities and practical learning opportunities for the female students.
This partnership between Aspetar and the College of Pharmacy at the University of Qatar, form an important dimension in the development of education in the field of sports medicine, so that will provide an opportunity for students to develop their skills in Clinical Pharmacy in the field of sports medical care and preparation for medical coverage
said Dr. Mohamed Ghaith Al Kuwari, Acting Director General, Aspetar.
The QU College of Pharmacy is proud to partner with Aspetar in this important clinical training agreement. The new partnership builds on the commitment of QU-CPH to prepare our students in the use of pharmaceuticals in sports-related cases. This year, in alignment with the Qatar National Vision 2030, we launched an elective course called ‘Drugs in Sport’ to address this very topic and we are thrilled that our students will now have the opportunity to benefit from the focused expertise of Aspetar’s Sport Medicine team in completing their clinical rotations
said Professor Ayman El-Kadi, Dean of the QU College of Pharmacy
QU-CPH is the first and only pharmacy programme in Qatar and the only institution outside of Canada that is accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy. The College of Pharmacy is accredited for both its bachelor and doctorate programmes and Aspetar will be affiliated as a partner in the practical training of both in Qatar.
Starting June 2016, Aspetar will function as a training location for QU-CPH students enabling them to put their theoretical learning into practice. And as part of the training programme within the Bachelor degree at QU-CPH, pharmacy students will now be able to complete one of the six required four-week clinical rotations at Aspetar Hospital.
Back in 2009, Aspetar and Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar signed an agreement that saw Aspetar become a designated center for providing academic and clinical training opportunities to WCMC-Q medical students, as well as promoting medical education in primary care and specific clinical services, such as the diagnosis and management of muscular and skeletal disorders.
Aspetar, the leading specialised orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital, and Qatar University’s College of Pharmacy (QU-CPH) have recently inked a clinical training agreement to offer the use of the required training facilities for QU-CPH female students to fulfill their academic requirements
