The dynamic and growing healthcare sector in the UAE requires highly skilled and experienced gastroenterologists who have their completed consultant training (CCT). Those with advanced fellowships post-specialisation are especially sought after to bring new skills and techniques to the region.
Subspecialties and areas of special interest in which gastroenterologists in the UAE work include hepatology, obesity management, inflammatory bowel disease, transplantation, and upper/lower GI diseases. Gastroenterologists may work in multi-specialty hospitals, day surgery units, medical centres or specialised clinics. Hospitals and clinics are equipped with the latest technologies for imaging, endoscopy, minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery.
Gastroenterologists working in the UAE are well supported in their continuing professional development (CPD). The Emirates Gastroenterology and Hepatology Society is one of the most active professional medical societies in the UAE, with an active schedule of events, seminars and forums covering clinical problems related to the specialty. In December 2022, Dubai hosted the World Congress of Gastroenterology with more than 2000 attendees from 110 countries.
Professionals in gastroenterology and other specialities are attracted to the UAE for many reasons including tax-free salary, improved lifestyle in a safe, multicultural, family-friendly environment, and the opportunity to apply for a Golden Visa.
