An overview of licensure exam

       Let us put in simple terms, we are all competent professionals who choose to work in the kingdom,but when it comes to write the exam we are always short of confidence predominantly due to lack of necessary information.

     As foreign professionals this lack of vital information at the right time always enhances anxiety. 

       The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCHS) is a scientific body with headquarters located in Riyadh. The SCHS has helped to establish modern, state-of-the-art healthcare institutions and has succeeded in attracting a well-qualified, diversified spectrum of  personnel. With these recognized and accredited facilities, the Saudi physician can pursue training in all different medical specialties. Cognizant of the importance of an independent Saudi body that can prepare and supervise training programs and assesses trainees, the SCHS is tasked with formulating proper standards and criteria for practicing and developing the health professions.

     The commission aims at upgrading professional performance, developing skills that enrich scientific literature, and properly apply knowledge in the various fields of health specialties. Some functions include approving and supervising profession health specialist programs; accrediting health institutions that provide training; supervising specialty exams and validating their results; certifying qualified professionals; encouraging health research and publication; holding  conferences and symposia for the region's health community; and setting criteria for practicing health professionals.

    Thus SCHS conducts exam for professionals who wish to practice in the kingdom.Needless to say its mandatory again. Nature & content of examination will be our next post. Bye for now.

TIP: Dont be apprehensive the exams will be held in standard format.
