The University of Calgary in Qatar (UCQ) will host its major sponsorship partners Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Sidra Medical Research Center and Qatar Biobank for Medical Research at its annual Open House event.

“UCQ’s Open House presents a unique opportunity for prospective students to directly engage with both UCQ’s faculty and staff and our sponsorship partners at the same event,” commented Justin Williams, Director of Student Services at UCQ and the main organizer of UCQ’s Open House. “The presence of potential sponsors at our event is crucial as it helps prospective students visualize the varied career paths that are available to UCQ’s nursing graduates."

Held annually, UCQ’s Open House allows prospective students and members of the community to visit campus to learn about UCQ’s Canadian-accredited nursing programs and explore their facilities. This will include organized tours of UCQ’s state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Centre and a chance to meet members of the UCQ men’s football team the Dinos.
