Dubai: Health-care professionals, especially outside the UAE, can apply for a medical licence to work in the Emirates through the fully operational online Examination and Evaluation System (EES).

Candidates  can appear for the licence exams, conducted on a weekly basis, in their own country and receive results electronically, reducing cost and time. The fees are also paid electronically.

Previously, an applicant had to appear for an exam, and if unsuccessful, reappear after the stipulated two months wait.

“The new system allows an applicant to sit for an exam every week in his or her country the number of attempts or trials to schedule MoH exams is four,” said Dr Ameen Hussain Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary for Medical Practices and Licensing at the ministry, speaking to Gulf News.

He explained that in the past, applicants had to enter the country and incur expenses.

Now they can enter the country after they have been evaluated and are ready to seek jobs. The system is centralised and reduces the financial burden on applicants. It also saves them time.”

To facilitate the exams, the ministry has enlisted the help of Prometric Worldwide, a global testing network. “Prometric manages the exams for the ministry around the world,” said Dr Al Amiri.

Apart from licensing, health-care professionals including physicians, technicians, dentists, pharmacists and TCAM (traditional, complementary and alternative medicine) practitioners can also benefit from the system’s online features that allow one to upgrade qualification and experience.

For fee payment, the system mandates the use of the UAE e-dirham card, which was introduced in 2001 to replace traditional methods of fee collection for government services.

The UAE E-Dirham card is a ‘secure electronic purse’ that can be bought in person or online from the ministries of Finance and Interior and/or any member bank like the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank and Commercial Bank of Dubai.

Dr Al Amiri said that once an applicant has registered, he or she has to submit the required documents (passport copy, photograph, and certificates, among others), and pay the fee using the UAE e-dirham card.

He explained that the payment is done through the Blue and Red Al Haslah prepaid (customisable) e-dirham cards.

He added the system has been tested by the ministries of health and finance to ensure accuracy.[Source]
