Following a specific directive from HH The Emir of Qatar, the College of Medicine (CMED) was founded in 2014 as a joint initiative between Qatar University and Hamad Medical Corporation, the main healthcare provider in Qatar. 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. This activity is vital as research forms the basis of advances in understanding the causes of, and therapeutic approaches to, all human disease.
CMED Vision & Mission

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. With Qatar University being the national and largest university in the country, it receives the majority of QNRF research awards, enabling many research-active QU faculty members to successfully win major funding and, in many cases, multiple grants.
