The Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) was established on April 9, 2001, when Cornell University signed an agreement with the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development to bring a branch of its medical school to Education City, Qatar, near the capital of Doha.

The medical college maintains the same standards for admission and education as the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, but offers both undergraduate and graduate courses of study, each with separate admission: a two-year non-degree pre-medical program followed by a four-year M.D. program. The pre-medical program opened in the fall of 2002, and was apparently the first coeducational institute of higher education in Qatar [1].
