UAE Dubai Opportunities for Filipino Healthcare Professionals
In January 2016, Sheikh Mohammed launched Dubai Health Strategy 2021 which aims to make Dubai a global leader in the providing world-class level of healthcare. One of its primary strategic objectives is to position Dubai as a global medical destination.
As of early 2016 there were 26 private hospitals in Dubai and to meet future demands, 18 new private hospitals are due to be built. If the current pace of growth in the commercial health sector is maintained, an additional 1500 beds will be required which represents the key focus sectors of government action in the coming years, the report says.
A 10-year plan to generate tens of thousands of healthcare jobs, the construction of dozens of new medical facilities and the opening of eight new medical education institutions by 2025 has created a great opportunity for investment in the health sector to meet the growing demand for specialist and primary healthcare services.
To be eligible to work in a healthcare job in Dubai, The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) requires healthcare job applicants to provide the relevant qualifications, licensing and Life Support Certificates from their home country which is then assessed. By registering on the OFW Careers website you meet the DHA requirements and enable OFW Careers to facilitate the next career opportunity.
One major draw for many expats considering working in Dubai and the UAE is tax-free income. However, salaries for employees in the healthcare sector varies, depending on the role, level, qualifications and whether the hospital or medical center is public or private.
Rated as offering the highest quality of living in the GCC by the Mercer’s 2016 Quality of Living Rankings, Dubai offers a great quality of living.
