UAE leading the way with future technologies

It really is an exciting time to be working in medicine in the UAE, as our nation continues to embrace new technologies and investigate ways they can be utilised to improve patient health.

Firstly, came the news this week that the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) are already embracing AI (Artificial Intelligence) in areas such as chest X-Rays, retinal scans and 3D printing of prosthetics, where AI is used to compare patient measurements and develop prosthetic limbs to specification. The use of 3D printed silicone heart valves is also being championed in the UAE as a means to tackle the waiting list for those requiring a heart transplant.

AI is also seen as a useful tool for analysing DNA, making predictions of potential genetic conditions or diseases that people are susceptible to.

“It is wonderful to see so many medical breakthroughs and cutting-edge technology being developed in Dubai,” Doctor Expat’s Kaneez Nabijee explained. “With developments like this it is easy to see why so many Doctors want to come and work in Dubai and be part of this. The fact that the DHA is at the forefront of these new technologies is just one of the reasons that we’re seeing a high demand for our DHA Licensing Packages. If you are a Doctor who wants to come and work in Dubai, please get in touch with us and we can help find you your next role.”
