It also sheds light on ways to create and sustain a positive, competent and stimulating environment for teaching interns.

The session is part of the college’s continued role as a leading provider in professional training of health care practices says Dean of the College of Health Sciences at QU, Professor Asma Al Thani. She adds, Our aim is to ensure that all professional practices have a solid foundation in recent scientific research and professional practices protocols that are accredited locally and internationally.
