Doctors salary packages.

Hi we are looking to relocate to the UAE from the UK. We both are physicians . I am a amily practitioner ( GP) and DH is a Consultant in Emerg medicine.
What is the basic salary for a consultant emerg med in the UAE and is it possible to get a decent education allowance for the children as schooling seems extremely expensive?  What is deemed a good package including housing and education allowance in the UAE for docs?
Any helpful replies would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi PJ,

Welcome to! :)

I hope other members will be able to advise you. Do not hesitate to have a look at other threads on Abu Dhabi forum.

Best of luck,

hi, well it depends where you gonna work, gov or pri, but normally doctors get good packages

I'v known doctors to be earning in a company with different salary packages. I guess it depends where you are from, as I've seen some working at 16K AED in total, while there are those who earn as much as 45K AED monthly. I've known a few earning more than 50K AED a month. And they all worked in the same hospital.

An apartment with three rooms can cost as much as 12-20K monthly, food and fuel is for sure cheap for a doctor, so to speak. As far as I know, there are companies that include education expenses for their employee's children.

I hope that helps.

Thank you Gonzule , that was useful. After much research , like you said no benchmark as such.Loved Abu Dhabi though as just back from a visit ..just to get a feel of the place n people.

You are most welcome.

Dear Docsjan
GPs in UAE are not paid as well as in the UK unless you get a job with a British / American company who wants you to look after its employees - then you can expect to earn as much as a locum GP would earn in the UK. Or else you will be competing with 'GPs' from the subcontinent and your salary will hardly equal that you earned in your final year of training. (with twice as expensive accomodation!!!)

Think carefully, bargain hard

hi much do Indian specialist doctors(dm/dnb ) get paid in uae..

I am a recruiter based in Vancouver, Canada.  We help hospitals / healthcare institutions fill their requirements for foreign employees (North American Experienced candidates specifically), whether they are medical or non-medical positions. 

We recently received an inquiry from a hospital in Abu Dhabi looking to hire a CFO and a CIO.  I would appreciate information that revolve around the compensation package for each of the position.  Salaries, bonuses, vacation, health benefits and other expat benefits provided for positions of this level.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Many, many thanks!
