The Employer

Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) is the main provider of secondary and tertiary healthcare in Qatar and one of the leading hospital providers in the Middle East.  For more than three decades HMC has been dedicated to delivering the safest, most effective and compassionate care to all its patients.  

HMC manages 10 hospitals - seven specialist hospitals and three community hospitals - as well as the National Ambulance Service and home and residential care services.  In 2016, HMC achieved the significant distinction of becoming the first healthcare system across the globe to have all its hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission International under the Academic Medical Centre accreditation program.  Additionally, the National Ambulance Service, Home Healthcare Service, Stroke Service and Palliative Care have all received this prestigious accreditation since 2011.

To meet the needs of a rapidly growing population HMC has announced ambitious plans to expand capacity across its network through to 2030.  This expansion plan includes a further three new hospitals in Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City. 


Qatar provides a safe and family friendly expatriate lifestyle. There are fabulous shops, restaurants, museums, cultural events, world class universities and social and sporting clubs and facilities. The country is located on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula, and with an area of 11,437 sq. km it’s fairly small in land mass (roughly half the size of Wales). In 2010, Qatar had the world's highest GDP per capita, while the economy grew by 19.4%, the fastest in the world. The main source of Qatar’s wealth is its vast reserves of natural gas which have made it one of the richest countries in the world. 

Qatar is pressing ahead with ambitious social, economic and infrastructure development plans and will invest tens of billions of pounds in developing its infrastructure over the next 10 years. Rapid population growth is driving demand for accommodation (both residential and commercial) and medical and education services.

How Head Medical can help

Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK’s specialist in international medical recruitment and we’ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location. 

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
