Tribune News Network
HAMAD Medical Corporation (HMC) welcomed a notable South Korean delegation to the second Qatar Korea Medical Forum at HMC's Medical Education Center for bilateral educational talks focusing on Hepatobiliary Surgery.
Members of the Asan Medical Center's (AMC) Hepatobiliary team included a multi-disciplinary group of physicians and nurses led by Prof Ki Hun Kim, chief of hepatobiliary surgery and liver transplantation at AMC. They were joined by HMC clinicians from the respective surgical teams.
The Deputy Chief Medical Officer and Director of Medical Education at HMC Dr Abdullatif al Khal explained that this is a continuation of collaboration between both healthcare systems, which began during the first successful Qatar-Korean medical forum which took place in November, 2016.
"We are delighted to have moved forward with this partnership that has seen our two organisations explore areas of collaboration in medical care. Staff from HMC and the Asan Medical Center (AMC) have planned and performed complex surgical procedures together. We look forward to continuing to share ideas and developing more ways to improve patient care in Qatar," said Dr Khal.
Ambassador of Korea to Qatar HE Park Heung-kyeong said:"I would like to say with appreciation that the second medical forum took place with strong support from the Qatari side, particularly Minister of Public Health HE Dr Hanan Mohamed al Kuwari. I hope this forum will provide a good momentum for further cooperation in professional training and patient treatment between Korea and Qatar, as the first forum brought about the full recognition of Korean specialist licenses by the Qatari government."
HMC and AMC are renowned medical institutions committed to expanding the important field of transplantation. The collaboration between these two excellent healthcare organisations will benefit patients in both nations.
"We are grateful to HE Heung-kyeong for his vision and interest in promoting bilateral ties between both healthcare providers and encouraging professional knowledge sharing," added Dr Khal.
