The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) is a government organization administering the overall health system in Dubai. This Licensing Authority aims to provide and maintain an accessible, effective and integrated healthcare system within the Emirate. The DHA also manages all healthcare professions in Dubai, UAE, with obtaining their professional licenses. But take note that each healthcare profession has a different set of DHA exam requirements based on the candidate's Professional Qualification Requirements or PQR.

The DHA exam in Dubai must be taken by both local and foreign medical professionals who wish to acquire a professional license and practice under this Emirate.

The standard DHA Exam Application process for foreign-trained professionals consists of the following steps:

1 Pre-Eligibility and Dataflow Application

The Pre-eligibility and Dataflow or Primary Source Verification (PSV) application is the phase in which the candidate can determine if he/she is eligible for the category the candidate applied for, mainly based on their educational and/or employment background. Once the candidate determined that he/she is eligible to proceed on the exam application process, the candidate must undergo a highly reliable background screening procedure to verify the candidate's personal or professional credentials directly from its original issuing source. The DHA DataFlow requirements vary depending on the candidate's profession. Therefore, please make sure that the information you will be providing in your application is correct. Any discrepancy may raise a red flag. 

Two DHA application statuses or results may show on a candidates' Dataflow report: either a POSITIVE result or a NEGATIVE result. Each candidate who sent his/her documents for the verification process will be given a dedicated DHA application tracking or log in details as their reference.

2 Exam Booking & Scheduling

The exam booking and scheduling phase is the pre-registration and confirmation of the candidate's DHA exam schedule. At this phase you should get ready for the DHA exam questions that you might encounter on your exam and make sure to study the DHA exam pattern in order to be prepared. If you haven't availed a review course yet, this is the time to do so.


3 Take the DHA Exam

On the day of your exam, ensure to bring acceptable forms of identification and plan to arrive at the test center at least 45 minutes of your confirmed test time for orientation and check-in purposes. If you are late or arrive at the test center without acceptable identification, you will be turned away and may register again for exam scheduling. You will also need to pay again for another DHA exam fee.

4 Claim your Exam Result

Candidates may access their official exam results using the corresponding DHA login details given to them. There are two DHA exam results, either PASS or FAIL only. There will be no examination scores or exam certificates issued regardless of whether the candidate passed or failed the examination.

5 Prof Credentialing Evaluation Phase

Once the candidate received his/her DataFlow report and passed the exam, the candidate can now proceed to the Prof Credentialing Evaluation phase. This is the process wherein the candidate's eligibility letter will be released; this document is needed to process his/her DHA license. Take note, in order to process your license application, you must find an employer first, if haven't done so yet, who can link his/her application to the DHA regulatory body for the DHA license issuance.
