12 New Stroke Treatment Centres by 2019

The number of opportunities for Doctors and Healthcare professionals who are keen to relocate to the UAE continues to grow on a weekly basis. The latest announcement of 12 new stroke management centres to be spread throughout the country by 2019 only serves to highlight the wide array of healthcare jobs available.

Doctors in Dubai’s CEO Kaneez Nabijee discussed the news: “In Dubai the average age for a stroke is 45, which is much lower than the world average, which is 60. Because incidences of strokes are a real problem across the UAE these centres have been opened to deal with the issue. Obviously these centres can only run properly if they are adequately staffed, which is why the UAE is crying out for Doctors, Nurses and other Healthcare staff to relocate here.”

If you are a medical professional who is considering relocating to the UAE then you will need to get your UAE professional license in place before employers will consider your application. Whilst the process can be both lengthy and daunting, Doctors in Dubai’s expert team is ideally placed to both reduce your application time, and take the burden of applying off of your shoulders. We can help with HAAD Licensing, DHA Licensing, MOH Licensing and DHCC Licensing. If you’re not sure which license you would need (or which region you would like to work in) we can guide you through the whole process. We can also help increase your chances of finding a job by helping you get multiple licenses and also helping to introduce you to clients.

New Skin Bank Set To Open in Dubai

Dubai continues to flourish as a medical tourism destination, bolstered by the recent announcement of the opening of the Middle East’s first skin bank, which is due to be opened in 2019.

The bank is set to open in within the Rashid Hospital complex in Dubai – the largest trauma care hospital in the region. The aim of the bank is to increase survival chances for those who suffer serious burns and require urgent skin grafts. Plastic surgeons and maxilla facial surgeons will also be utilising the bank to help reconstruct patients that have had to have skin removed due to cancer.

“This new facility will specialise in storing dermal grafts from donors,” Doctors in Dubai’s CEO Kaneez Nabijee explained. “It is wonderful to see that this new skin bank is planned for 2019 as it is yet another new medical facility opening in Dubai. Every day, we are talking to clients about the growth in the UAE’s health sector and how it is fast becoming one of the world’s premier destinations for medical advancements.

“When you think about all these new complexes opening, and combine that with the glorious climate and extremely lucrative financial rewards, it is no wonder why so many Doctors and other healthcare professionals are choosing to relocate to the UAE to take advantage of the quality of life available here.”
