Accreditation Canada recently held an appreciation event for its Qatari partners in Health Care.  The event was held in conjunction with the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH). On hand for the occasion were Canadian Ambassador to the State of Qatar, Stefanie McCollum and Accreditation Canada CEO Leslee Thompson.

Accreditation Certificates were presented to College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) for its Advanced Care Paramedicine and Medical Radiography programs. These are the first educational programs accredited in the Middle East under the new EQual Canada program. EQual Canada is the education accreditation arm of Accreditation Canada, with EQual standing for Education Quality. “CNA-Q is honored to receive these certificates,” said CNA-Q Dean of Health Sciences Dr. Andrea Smilski, who was on hand for the event. “The recognition of two of the outstanding Health Sciences programs we have at CNA-Q is an important validation of the in-demand programs we offer at the College, and of the international status of these credentials.” 

Certificates of appreciation were also presented to six partners in health care in Doha; Primary Health Care, Qatar Care, El Emadi Hospital, Qatar Petroleum, HMC Trauma Centre, and Doha Clinic.  The event also included a question and answer session, and networking opportunities.
