Hamad Medical Corporation as part of its ongoing commitment to delivering world-class quality and capability in healthcare, both in Qatar and internationally, has initiated an International Advisory Panel (IAP) of local and international healthcare professionals to map out the future of the HHQI and build upon HMC’s successes in healthcare improvement. 

The International Advisory Panel provides overall strategic guidance to the Institute’s leadership on its activities, drawing on healthcare experts from the international healthcare system. Working in an advisory capacity and in collaboration with HHQI leadership, the IAP is responsible for steering HHQI to respond to the latest local, regional and international healthcare system challenges. Members of the International Advisory Panel also act as ambassadors for the institute nationally and internationally.

  • Guidance, direction and support to the institute based on their experiences
  • Insight into the innovative solutions being developed for healthcare in the international arena 
  • Sharing best practice and supporting the need to translate existing solutions 
  • Provide opportunities to develop further affiliations with leading healthcare institutions
