In this article, we’re going to share with you the study material for HAAD, MOH, DHA DHCC license exams. These are the medical licensing exams of the United Arab Emirates for doctors and healthcare professionals who wish to practice medicine in UAE. All this information has been collected from our alumni (currently training in UAE) and partly from our research via social media and online forums. This article will suffice the study material you need for cracking UAE’s medical licensing exams. 🙂



But first, let’s take a look at what we already know about life as a doctor in UAE. We recommend reading the following articles for knowledge base if you’re seriously considering obtaining HAAD, MOH, DHA or DHCC license in UAE:

Salary of Doctors in UAE (Authentic and Fully Updated)

How to Apply for HAAD, DHA, MOH and DHCC License Exam of UAE

Exemption Criteria for HAAD, DHA, MOH & DHCC License Exams

After publishing the above-mentioned articles, we received too many emails asking for the study material for HAAD, DHA, MOH and DHCC license exams. Because the authorities have just provided a vague description of the paper which is JUST NOT ENOUGH when it comes to exam preparation. So, for making this clear, we contacted our alumnus, Dr. Yasir Ameer Baloch (currently working as a Physician-General Internal Medicine at Masafi Hospital, Ministry of Health & Prevention, Fujairah, UAE) for his assistance. And in addition, we also searched the web. And so, we have come across some seriously useful stuff that you can use for your preparation! 🙂

Here’s what you need for HAAD, MOH, DHA or DHCC license exam preparation:

Exam Pattern of HAAD, MOH, DHA or DHCC

The exam pattern is as follows (all of this based on experience and recall of doctor who recently took the exam):

  • Number of questions: 120 (Best of 4 MCQs)
  • Allowed time: 150 minutes
  • Passing: Around 60%
  • TYPE OF QUESTIONS:
    1- Straight 1-2 line questions followed by multiple choice options
    2- They give two columns (3 lines/words in each column) and ask to choose the best option
    3- There will be 2-3 line scenarios of a disease (i.e Systemic Lupus Erythematosus was one) and then subsequently asked 3 questions, all of them were one line questions.





Time management is not an issue because the questions are of single line mostly.

  1. Assalamualaikum Aurangzeb
    In order to get expemption from MOH licensing examination for becoming a GP in Sharjah. Is clearing PLAB 2 only is sufficient or MRCP is also required along with Plab 2 . Your kind reply will be really appreciated

    Regards

    • PLAB 2 would do enough, as indicated by their policy. If you have passed PLAB 2, you can directly apply for an exemption from the said licensure examinations and get a license-to-practice directly.

      Good luck! 🙂
