Other Tips / FAQ’s

 

1.       Why do I need to start my licensing process before I get an offer?

Our Client invests a lot of time and put a lot of thought into recruiting clinicians of the highest calibre to join them. It is important that the candidates also carefully considered the decision to move to the UAE before approaching us. The licensing process is one indication of a candidate’s seriousness. Being licensed is also a legal requirement for clinicians to be able to treat clients.
Clinical Psychologists should start with their licensing process with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) as soon as possible. 
Other Mental health professionals should register with the CDA and ensure their qualifications are equalized too.
Please note You do not get invited to visit our client’s clinic – for the final screening step – until completed Primary Source Verification (PSV) through Dataflow. You cannot start employment until the license has been granted.

We have a dedicated licensing division that can help you process DHA / CDA Dataflow for a fee.

 

2.       How long does the interview process take?

Our Client has 5 stage/levels of interviews and they conclude the fourth screen by the 5th week after receiving the candidthe ate’s resume and all documents and in the format requested above.
The final round - clinic visit is dependent on the candidate’s progress in the licensing process and their availability for travel. Once they receive an offer, their start date is dependent on when they get awarded their license and when they can move from their previous job/country (if applying from abroad).

 

3.       Do you offer other benefits such as housing or schooling allowances or flights home?

 

Such allowances are rare in private practice employment contracts in Dubai and, when included, they are usually coupled with a lower base salary. Instead, our Client ensures that the clinicians have the opportunity to earn enough income to cover such costs themselves, and through the production model clinicians do not have an earning ceiling, if they see more clients, they earn more. The clinicians’ income with this employer is in the top 2-5% for mental health professionals in Dubai.

 

4.       How do clinicians build their caseload?

 

The clinic’s reputation for excellence, professionalism and care attracts a steadily growing number of clients. Our Client operates a triage system to assign clients to clinicians whose expertise best match their needs, within a reasonable window of availability, and with a consideration of the clinicians’ relative caseloads. You are also offered multiple platforms and opportunities to build your reputation which in turn further bolsters the caseloads.

 

5.       Does the teamwork in a multidisciplinary manner?

 

At our client’s, Psychology, Psychiatry, Occupational and Speech & Language Therapists all work alongside each other. They make appropriate inter-referrals and engage in joint working.

 

6.       What clinical specialities are needed at our client’s?

 

The Client serves the community across the lifespan and therefore welcome clinicians who can work well as generalists and bring specialities and serve niche areas of need. Your speciality will also provide opportunities to train colleagues and various mental health professionals in the community looking to deepen their clinical skills.
