Why look at GP jobs in Qatar?
Now is a really exciting time to take a GP job in Qatar. In recent years, the country has made improving its healthcare a priority, and with plenty of financial backing, the medical facilities are thoroughly modern and properly equipped. What’s more, unlike the UK, GP jobs in Qatar allow for slightly longer consultation times, as there are fewer patients at every practice.
In your spare time, you can enjoy the many delights of Qatar – known as a highlight of the Persian Gulf. Otherwise, you could explore the UAE, Bahrain or Oman which are all easily accessible. Alternatively, you may wish to simply relax in your included accommodation. Family medicine consultant jobs in Qatar come with a standard of living that’s rarely – if ever – matched in the UK. Many enlist the services of a maid, housekeeper and driver to help them; as this is all easily covered by salary. And with a generous leave allowance, you can visit home frequently if you do ever get homesick!
Those with GP jobs in Qatar will also receive education assistance for their children, so they can learn from the best at one of the internationally-renowned private academies that can be found in the country.
To work as a family consultant GP in Qatar, you must hold CCT and MRCGP or equivalent Western qualifications (U.S. Board or Australian/New Zealand Fellowships also accepted). The ability to speak Arabic would be advantageous but is not essential.
