UAE unifies License for Medical Practitioners
The Ministry of Health (MoH), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) signed an agreement for the unification of licenses for medical practitioners in the country.
Medical practitioners in the country were waiting for this unification process for some time as this will enhance their employment chances.
“It’s a new step on the right path in order to unify the regulations, laws and procedures governing this noble human profession,” said Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum about the agreement that was signed on the sidelines of Arab Health Exhibition & Congress
According to the ministry sources, the law would standardize several aspects of medical services in private and public sectors. The law would also ensure there was a single format for hiring, and salaries for each job.
“This is a good step and now a plenty of medical professionals will be available in the market as they can practice in any emirate with any of MoH/DHA/HAAD licenses,”
