More than 100 students from four of Qatar’s leading healthcare colleges convened at Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) for a day of inter-professional education (IPE) workshops designed to foster collaboration among trainees of four different health professions.
A total of 116 students comprising trainee pharmacists, doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists from Qatar University College of Pharmacy (QU CPH), WCM-Q, University of Calgary in Qatar (UCQ) and the College of the North Atlantic – Qatar (CNA-Q) respectively, met at WCM-Q to learn vital collaborative working skills to help them deliver coordinated care packages when they enter the healthcare profession after graduation. This was the sixth IPE session to be held by these colleges during the 2016-17 academic year, and the second to be held at WCM-Q. IPE activities are organized by the Inter-Professional Education Committee (IPEC), which convenes at Qatar University and includes representatives from most of the healthcare colleges in Qatar.
