Licensing Services

There are three types of licenses available in the U.A.E. which allow medical professionals to practice medicine in healthcare facilities within the whole country and four different healthcare regulatory bodies which are responsible for licensing of medical facilities.

The Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) is the regulative body of the Healthcare Sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and ensures excellence in Healthcare for the community by monitoring the health status of the population. HAAD defines the strategy for the health system, monitors and analyses the health status of the population and performance of the system. In addition HAAD shapes the regulatory framework for the health system, inspects against regulations, enforce standards, and encourages adoption of world – class best practices and performance targets by all healthcare service providers in the Emirate. By obtaining the HAAD license, medical professionals are eligible to work in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) was created, in June 2007 with an expanded vision to include strategic oversight for the complete health sector in Dubai and enhance private sector engagement. The DHA’s aim in Dubai is to provide an accessible, effective and integrated healthcare system, protect public health and improve the quality of life within the Emirate.

Ministry of Health – MOH entitles the holder to practice medicine in Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Umm al Quwain or Ras Al Khaimah, but not in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain or Dubai.
