Qatar University teams up with hospital on sports medicine

Qatar University (QU) recently announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aspetar Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital (Aspetar). The MoU calls for collaboration in the field of medical education and research, specifically in sports and exercise medicine (SEM).
 
“Partnering with Aspetar will definitely enrich our curriculum and serve our students in their journey towards becoming distinguished health professionals,” said Dr. QU Vice President for Medical and Health Education and College of Medicine (CMED) Dean Dr. Egon Toft in statement. “At QU, we recognize the important role that SEM has in promoting health and preventing disease and injury, and we are always committed to serve the needs of the community by building capacity in clinical practice, medical education and research. We are optimistic that the collaboration with Aspetar will be helpful in all these areas.”
 
The MoU was signed by Toft and Aspetar Acting Director General Dr. Mohamed Ghaith Al Kuwari at a ceremony attended by institution officials, faculty, staff and students. As part of the agreement, QU students will be able to attend clinics hosted by Aspetar faculty.
 
“I would like to thank QU Health for this collaboration in providing the undergraduate medical education in SEM,” said Dr. Mohamed Ghaith Al Kuwari. “This agreement is considered as a step forward to attract students to SEM as a specialty in the near future.”
