Opportunities galore for Qataris at Sidra pavilion
DOHA SIDRA Medical and Research Centre — one of the prestigious projects of Qatar Foundation — aims to provide a number of opportunities to young Qataris.
Communication Project Director of Sidra Khalid al Mohannadi said, “The centre has offered multiple opportunities for young Qataris.” Participating in the 5th Qatar Career Fair (QCF) 2012, Sidra is one of the premier organisations that young graduates can look forward to for employment, career development and training opportunities.
Speaking to Qatar Tribune on the sidelines of the QCF 2012, al Mohannadi said, “We encourage Qatari graduates to be part of a world-class facility. We will have to recruit between 3,500 and 5,000 people by the end of the year, when the project becomes operational.
Therefore, we are looking for new graduates to be part of a world class facility which is unique in this entire region.” He further said that in addition to the employment opportunities, there would be training and scholarship programmes.
“We encourage youngsters to make use of the training facilities available at the centre, such as the summer programme. In addition, we provide scholarship programmes to talented and deserving students who are ready to work for us at a later stage,” he added.
The communication director also said that Sidra would be using latest technologies.
This will need highly qualified and experienced professionals. “We will recruit a number of experienced professionals and the graduates will get a lot of opportunity to work with them. This will provide valuable knowledge and experience to the youngsters who later on will be able to apply this knowledge in different capacities,” he said.
Sidra Medical and Research Centre will be an ultra modern, all-digital academic medical centre which is being designed and planned to meet the best international standards in sciences. It will offer specialty care for women and children.
It looks to provide worldclass patient care, medical education and biomedical research. Sidra, located in the QF’s 2,500-acre Education City campus, will initially have 388 beds with an infrastructure to expand to 550 beds in the future.
