Seha in major Emiratisation drive
Abu Dhabi, September 8, 2011
Seha, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, recently recruited 131 UAE nationals in its health facilities, aiming to employ and train UAE nationals in their home country.
A total of 75 Emiratis are taking part in an internship programme, while another 56 Emiratis who have already completed their internships will enter accredited residency programs for specialist training.
“Seha is building a sustainable, healthcare system where UAE nationals assume a larger role in healthcare delivery and are supported in professional development along the way so they can contribute to healthcare needs in the country,” said Madiha Al Marzouqi, head of recruitment and manpower planning section, Human Resources Department, at Seha.
“Seha’s internship programme helps incubate UAE nationals to the point they become able additions to the healthcare workforce in various specializations.”
“Seha is dedicated to becoming an employer of choice for UAE nationals, and increasing the number of Emiratis in the healthcare sector,” Al Marzouqi added.
Post residency, candidates can either start practicing general medicine or apply for a four year higher education program to specialize in a specific branch of medicine.
Seha also offers scholarships to undergraduate and graduate UAE national medical students to deepen the pool of skilled candidates in healthcare. – TradeArabia News Service
