Busy doctors describe re-licensing deadline as unworkable.
A call for all Dubai’s doctors to report to a hotel over a two week period in January to apply for re-licensing, has been deemed unworkable by physicians and healthcare managers.
The move is part of a wholesale reform of licensing and regulation procedures being carried out by Dubai Health Authority (DHA) - the first phase of which is to reassess every doctor’s eligibility to practice in the emirate.
All 6,000 physicians working in Dubai at present has been told they must present in person at the Al Murooj Rotana hotel between January 16-30, to obtain a user name and password so they can apply for a new licence online.

this is tough as very short time for any one. Perhaps give the doctors three months before their licernsure needs renewd. The best way would be to adapt federation credential veriication service from FSMB. This will help all and for many countries. The major problems would be the senior doctors. Other proactive thing which can be done is to grandfather all who have been practising for more than 5 years and have no compalint and qualioty is good. Recertiications or competency requires very well thought out processes and needs to be individualized. Health care providers are healers and need to be respected well and not come in two weeks etc
of course patient welfare is the mission so needs to be done
