My daughter has completed her MBBS and house surgeon and she wish to practice in Qatar. I really appreciated if anybody can guide me how to apply in H.M.[I understood that fresh MBBS candidate can practice in HMC without salary and HMC will provide a similar certificate of PG. ] (I don't know how it is possible) and She is interested specialize to be pediatrician.
Residency programs are available in HMC for different specialities..the admission to them are based on a selection exam and interviews..does your daughter have a valid RP in qatar?..makes it easier..
Check out this link ...it gives most of the details and contact nos..
If you get accepted into this program, could you defer your student loans in the US? Most US medical students have anywhere from $300,000 to $400,000 dollars in student loans and interest piling up everyday. Does HMC give any allowance for paying off student loans or moonlighting on the days were off?
@ kareem,a word of advice,if your daughter wants to become a REAL paediatrician or a REAL specialist in any branch of medicine,my personal recommendation would be that she do her MD in India,maybe even work @ a REAL hospital for a few years before coming here...do you know who the GOOD doctors @ Hamad are my friend?...the ones who received ALL their training OUTSIDE,wherever that may be...of course,if your daughter is ONLY interested in becoming a doctor/specialist to earn that tax-free money,then you should apply for this HMC residency straight away,but better make sure she will remain in Qatar till she retires because her "specialization" from here will not be recognized back home in India or elsewhere in the real world...do you have any close friends who are doctors or even nurses in Hamad? ask their advice,see what they tell you...PG in Hamad,please,that's the biggest joke i've heard all day...
