The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) held its first written Qatari Board of Medical Specialties (QBMS) examination for medical residents in the State of Qatar. The certifying exam included 13 ACGME-I accredited specialties and was administered to 148 candidates. The examination is a profound achievement for the healthcare sector in Qatar as the success in the examination grants the specialization certification to all resident doctors who complete the State training period in training programs approved by the American Board of Accreditation for Medical Specialties.
The QBMS is an ambitious project seeking to ensure the quality, competence, and specialty knowledge of physicians in their respective specialties. Through the board certifying examinations, the healthcare practitioners can be assured of the opportunity for enhanced learning and providing better patient care.
Chair of the Executive Committee of QBMS Dr. Saad Al Kaabi said that the inception of the QBMS is a huge and successful leap in medical education in Qatar and it would not have materialized without the outstanding, collaborative effort of physicians and staff professionals in the Ministry. The successful completion of the examination is just the beginning of what the healthcare sector can achieve through hard work, dedication, and motivation to provide top-quality healthcare to the people in Qatar.
