The dynamic and growing healthcare sector in the UAE requires highly skilled and experienced gynaecologists 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.
Obstetrics and gynaecology is an incredibly diverse specialty that spans medicine and surgery. Subspecialties in which gynaecologists in the UAE work include gynaecological oncology, maternal and foetal medicine, reproductive medicine, and urogynaecology. Gynaecologists may work in multi-specialty hospitals, medical centres or specialised clinics.
According to research by the World Health Organisation, around 1 in 6 adults globally are affected by infertility. The demand for fertility treatments is growing in the UAE and there are many internationally accredited infertility treatment centres, equipped with the latest technologies. Fertility treatments offered include in vitro fertilisation (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), intrauterine insemination (IUI), freezing of sperm, eggs or embryos and preimplantation genetic testing (PGT).
This growth in the fertility sector is driven not only by domestic demand but also the success of the UAE, and especially the emirate of Dubai, in promoting medical tourism. The medical tourism sector is well supported and regulated by the government. The Dubai Health Experience (DXH) www.dxh.ae, founded by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), brings together a consortium of recognised, quality-assured healthcare providers and facilitators to optimise the medical tourism experience.
Gynaecologists working in the UAE are well supported in their continuing professional development (CPD). The Emirates Obstetrics & Gynecology Society under the umbrella of Emirates Medical Association (EMA) plays a key role in the continuing learning and improvement in the quality of obstetric and gynaecology services in the UAE and the wider region. There are regular courses and regional and international conferences organised for Obstetrics and Gynaecology professionals in the UAE.
Professionals in gynaecology and other specialties 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.
