Student Health Insurance and Hamad Medical Cards

All students are encouraged to have a current Hamad Medical Card. Students under family sponsorship can obtain a Hamad Medical Card through their family at their local Primary Health Care Clinic (PHCC). International students (who are not family sponsored in Qatar) are required to apply for a Hamad Health Card. This card provides access to services at any of the Hamad Medical Corporation’s (government medical facility) healthcare facilities or hospitals.
