    Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) Training and Development Department within the Office of Engineering, in collaboration with the Health Professions Awareness and Volunteering Programs, recently visited the Aisha Bint Abu Bakr Independent School for Girls to promote engineering-related career opportunities in HMC.

    The visit is part of HMC’s efforts to attract students towards engineering careers at the medical corporation, which sees teams from HMC regularly go to local schools to advise young men and women to opt for higher education in engineering. In 2014 alone, HMC teams visited around 25 schools and this year the plan is to visit 30 schools in addition to some universities and colleges.

    For this visit, a delegation from the HMC’s Office of Engineering, headed by Mr. Abdulla Khalaf Al Kubaisi, Chief of Training and Development Department, visited Aisha Bint Abu Bakr Independent High School for Girls. Mr. Al Kubaisi provided information on the Engineering departments at HMC and the services they provide. He also explained the necessary requirements to apply for engineering jobs at HMC.

    Students had the opportunity to ask questions and shared their concerns. Mr. Al Kubaisi highlighted that the corporation is determined to support the National Qatarization Program in many areas including engineering.

    A plaque of appreciation was presented by Mr. Al Kubaisi to the Academic Advisor at the school, Ms. Naila Al Jassim, who thanked the HMC delegation and thanked them for guiding and instructing students about the requirements of the job market in Qatar.

    HMC’s Office of Engineering offers scholarships to Qatari male and female students, upon approval from the university the student is enrolling at. The department also offers work opportunities to all graduates post-graduation.

    Another initiative has also been established where students from Qatar Technical Independent School are provided technical training by HMC through a three-year program. The program also encourages engineering faculties to work with HMC by providing specialized training to staff.
