The UAE - Documentation Requirements


In terms of licensing bodies, the Emirati system is composed of 3 main authorities; the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD), the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Ministry of Health MOH which broadly speaking, oversees licensing application outside of the two major cities, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Emirati requirements are fairly explicit in that they are arranged into a tiered system which determines eligibility according to the level of training you hold and where you have trained.

Priority at the top tier is given to applicants who hold CCT, CCST, American Board registration, CIS (French), Australian or New Zealand Fellowships. Such applicants would be eligible for ‘immediate’ licensing in that they would not have to sit any entrance exams to ascertain their professional status.

It is worth noting that GMC specialist registration would also be technically counted in the 1st tier and this combined with Fellowships pre-dating the UK CCST system will be counted as eligible however, priority will typically be given to applicants holding any of the qualifications listed above. CESR is not accepted at tier one and the Emirati system as a whole places emphasis on training over equivalence in the UK system.
