Why Doctors are Important?


You are sick, you need to see a doctor. But not just any doctor will do, no matter how much your head wants to convince you otherwise. It’s important that the doctor has studied well, passed all his exams, and completed years of practical training. Without this training, the doctor cannot read medical journals to keep himself up-to-date on new developments in his field or apply for continuing education courses through which he can broaden his knowledge base even more.

A good doctor knows this makes him better able to diagnose and treat illnesses correctly. You are happy with your choice of a doctor because it probably means less chance of getting treatment that won’t work or being misdiagnosed… two things people have unfortunately experienced countless times throughout history at their low point.

The doctor also knows he can’t just do what feels right and hope for the best: “I’m going to give you this pill and then we’ll see if that works,” he might tell a sick person, only half-joking. But no patient wants to hear such unprofessional talk. They want treatment plans based on tests and diagnosis. The doctor should continue prescribing the proper treatment until the symptoms go away or his patient insists on trying something else (keeping in mind his doctor’s suggestions take precedence because he has earned this authority through years of study). If all goes well, everyone is happy! The patient feels better and the doctor gets appreciation from case review parties at which medical students check out each other’s work as an art gallery.

Doctors in Society


Doctors are an important part of society because they treat and diagnose illnesses that would otherwise never go away and/or might be worse than death (believe me, I know this first-hand!).

The amount of knowledge they have is staggering and we should value it as such. They even save lives every day by doing things like operating on people or giving them medication intravenously (the science behind which makes my head spin). “Bad doctors” do exist, but just as there are bad lawyers, teachers, plumbers, and cashiers in the world, so too must there be some doctors who aren’t as good as they should be. However, it is not fair to judge all doctors based on the mistakes made by a few rotten apples in a noble profession.

How To Become a Doctor in Dubai?


Being a doctor is an extremely demanding job not only in the long hours but also in the responsibility you are given to save people’s lives.

Your patients depend on you for their health and well-being which means you’ll need to commit yourself fully to your profession. To work as a doctor in Dubai, you must first complete your undergraduate education by completing medical school. 

The good news is that there are numerous respected universities throughout the world that offer quality 4-year bachelor’s degree programs in medicine or related field. Medical schools typically require undergraduate degrees, but some may accept students after earning a 2-year associate degree at community colleges. And with many online options now available, studying medicine abroad no longer requires uprooting your life and moving away from family and friends.

After completing your bachelor’s degree, you will then need to complete a 4-year medical program in the country of your choice. These programs typically require applicants to pass an entrance exam such as the MCAT, which tests their knowledge of biology and chemistry while also checking their critical thinking ability with essay-based questions.

However, students may have the opportunity to gain some credit for their undergraduate degrees if they choose a graduate-entry program or UK foundation medicine course. Graduates from these courses are awarded a place directly into a UK PhD/Masters course without having to sit any further exams. This method obviously saves time and money but is only available at universities that work closely with affiliated schools of medicine that offer these courses.

Once you have completed your medical degree you will need to gain the proper work visas. You must have a license issued by the UAE Ministry of Health in order to work as a doctor in Dubai. Remember that your visa is only valid through your sponsoring clinic, so you may need to start your search for employment even before arriving in the country.
