Dubai is the most populous and the largest emirate in the UAE, with approximately 2,502,715 people. The emirate has majorly developed due to trade and tourism. Notably, it is the most progressive emirate among the seven emirates. Dubai is classified as an alpha city due to its strong economy. Despite being a desert, the country has managed to utilize its resources, and according to the 2015 statistics, it has an annual GDP of 105.6 billion USD. Unlike its neighbouring emirates, such as Abu Dhabi, the oil reserves of Dubai have been exhausted; oil contributes only 2 % of the total GDP of this emirate. Although it started as a port, Dubai has developed into a luxurious emirate that is home to the world's tallest building named, Burj Khalifa.
Dubai Health Authority issues DHA Licence. The Emirate of Dubai has two licensing bodies; the first one is the DHA (Dubai Health Authority) or Dubai mainland. The second is a free zone, DHCC(Dubai Healthcare City), whose license is issued separately, allowing qualified health professionals to practice exclusively in the DHCC Freezone.
Healthcare. Professionals seeking to start their career in Dubai must obtain a registration and then activate it into a licence to practice. Thus, the application, assessment, examination and issuance of the Licence follow the policies and guidelines formulated by DHA ( Dubai Health Authority). Therefore, candidates who wish to work in the Dubai mainland medical entities must apply for the DHA license.
