The Qatar Genome Programme aims to support the pillars of Qatar National Vision 2030, and one of the important goals is to build the workforce and the capacity that will drive the advances in genomic medicine and its application into healthcare.

QGP aims to help Qatar build its next generation of scientists, by helping the students develop skills and sharpen their interpersonal skills by interacting with our team and other researchers and scholars on a professional level and in a way that they did not experience in the classroom.

In alignment with Qatar Foundation’s commitment to education and building human capacity, Qatar Genome Programme (QGP) launched its summer internship programme in 2015, which was a great success and was followed by another in 2016 and 2017. Following these successes, a targeted internship programme will be launched in the summer of 2019 for healthcare professionals.
