Qualifications and requirements to work as a Doctor in the United Arab Emirates

To practice as a consultant in the UAE you have to prove that you have the following certifications as a doctor:

1. Generally speaking, the ideal candidate would possess CCT (Certificate of Completion of Training), or equivalent certification, in their specialist area. The equivalents accepted from other countries include:
  • American / Canadian Board Registration
  • Facharzt (German)
  • French Board DES
  • Australian or New Zealand Fellowships

In addition, the candidate will also have a minimum of 3 years’ substantive post experience.

2. Alternatively, candidates who have been in Consultant posts which pre-date CCT will require fellowship of a Royal College in your specialism (e.g., Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS)) and typically have at least 10 years’ experience post Fellowship.

3. Some clients prioritise Arabic speaking candidates over others who do not speak the native tongue, whereas others are do not require this and look for excellence in spoken English.

4. Female doctors are preferred for some specialists, especially Obstetrics and Gynaecology roles.
