The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has signed a cooperation agreement with Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) to extend cooperation in implementation of an optional course in forensic medicine.
The course will be presented by the WCM-Q in cooperation with the Forensic Medicine Center at the Ministry of Interior.
The agreement was signed by Assistant Director of Public Security Major-General Abdullah Mohammed Al Suwaidi and Dean of WCM-Q Dr Javaid Sheikh.
Speaking on the occasion, Major-General Suwaidi said, “The forensic medicine is one of the main pillars of achieving justice, uncovering crime, decoding its vagueness and helping the judiciary, prosecution and investigation officers to reach the perpetrator.”
He added that the agreement between the WCM-Q and the Forensic Medicine Center would contribute to the participation of faculty members at the College with the Forensic team at the centre to provide educational curricula and training in forensic medicine.
For his part, Dr Sheikh welcomed the cooperation agreement and described it as an opportunity for students of the College of Medicine to train in forensic medicine at the MoI’s centre and benefit from the expertise of the doctors working in the centre and learn about the work they do.
The agreement includes providing a good material for college students during the study period for specialisation that combines the tasks of the doctor and the investigator at the same time.
Director of Planning and Quality Department of the Ministry of Interior Brigadier Abdul Rahman Majid Al Sulaiti said under the agreement, students of WCM-Q, who are registered in the subject, will receive appropriate training from faculty members in addition to an integrated team of forensic doctors at the ministry’s Forensic Medicine Center.
He noted that the ministry had previously developed similar cooperation between the center and the College of Medicine at Qatar University.
Brigadier Sulaiti stressed that the ministry is constantly working on cooperation with academic bodies, research centres and civil society institutions in the country to achieve the common good, security and stability.
