Becoming a doctor is a nervy dingus and to work in a medical field in Dubai is much more vigorous. If you are from UAE or you are an expat, you need to have a germane licensing and qualification from your home country and you will have to pass some assessments by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). Even if you have your medical certificates from UAE medical universities, still you have to pass the DHA assessments.
First thing’s first, if you are an expat, you need a visa. There can be two ways; either you are appointed by a hospital as a doctor or you come to Dubai in a visit visa and search for a job and if you have the right set of skills and some luck you can have your visa changed afterward. Moreover, if you are a UAE resident and you have the best medical skills, you can apply to different hospitals.
Tip; keep an eye or a regular update on the Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) website for the latest news and medical jobs.
