The Dubai Health Authority(DHA) has developed a self-assessment tool, which is an instant 24/7 online service that is free of cost to support investors, health professionals, and medical facilities.
The service aims to provide support and guidance to stakeholders and enhance the sustainability of the health sector in the Emirate.
Dr. Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector at the DHA said that the self-assessment tool is an important initiative and enables applicants who want to apply for a medical license to check whether they meet all the conditions required to obtain a health professional license to practice medicine in the Emirate of Dubai.
Professional titles and all licensing requirements are clearly mentioned in line with the standards approved in the country.
He pointed out that the self-assessment is carried out by the applicant by answering some short questions, and then obtaining the initial evaluation result immediately.
The user needs to select the category of license he is applying for. For example Physician, dentist, nurse, midwife, allied health, or traditional complementary and alternative medicine.
He stated that this service helps applicants, health facilities or investors to ensure the applicant is eligible to obtain the required license without the need to submit any documents.
Al Mulla said that the authority has developed another service which supports the health sector in Dubai, known as the Document Verification Service.
This smart electronic service allows the concerned authorities to verify the authenticity of all documents and certificates issued by the authority, through the DHA’s online electronic licensing system known as Sheryan.
He stated that the Document Verification Service includes several documents such as sick leaves approved by the authority, professional licenses, health facility licenses, professional registration certificates, and certificates of good standing.
The online service is simple to use and the user simply needs to enter the barcode number and the existing PIN code at the bottom of the document and the user will be able to see and verify the identical copy issued by the DHA.
Al Mulla added that the aim of adding additional online services is to provide stakeholders with added convenience, enhance efficiency and reduce the time taken for these processes.
