Medical staff in Dubai need further education to renew licence
The new requirement from the Ministry of Health has been put into effect retroactively from last month, and will help raise the standards of health care services and improve the performance of doctors in the country, the Ministry said in a statement.
Medical staff needs continues education and training to deal with the lives of hunan beings. Training and education is same as pilots and the air crew as they also deals with human lives. I am sure airlines are investing a lot to upgrade the training of their crew. But unfortunately for the doctrs to learn new skill and attend international conferences, to gain new knowledge money is needed. It is very difficult with the limited salary for doctors to spend money on their professional development. Authorities and private sectors should give the education allowances for the medical staff so that they should keep themself updated with new knowledge and new skills. Unfortunately this important allowance is missing in most of the doctors salary package.

The requirement for medical staff to further educate themselves with the new developments in the field is welcome. Linking of renewal of practising licence to the qualified personnel is also a welcome step. No private hospitals and clinics at present grant any promotion or other benefits to the medical staff based on their attendance in courses to attain more knowledge in the field. It is suggested that directions to award promotions and benefits as envisaged in the proposal should be made a part of the scheme when requiring the medical staff to equip themselves with additional know-how and expertise in the field.
