CMED is envisioned to become a national provider of highly qualified doctors to serve the medical healthcare needs of communities within Qatar from 2022. The mission of CMED also includes comprehensive engagement in leading health-related medical research.

Research Funding:

Within QU, all CMED faculty will have excellent opportunities to secure intramural and extramural funding to progress their research project ideas.  The Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) is the major source of research funding for individual project funding proposals with some awards that can exceed QAR1 million/project (e.g. QAR5 million for exceptional projects) along with undergraduate and postgraduate student research funding programs.
