The Location

In recent years Saudi Arabia has witnessed a period of high growth and economic progress. Record oil revenues have given rise to increased public spending on infrastructure to match the increasing needs of a fast growing population. Priority has been given to education and healthcare, which has led to the growth of medical cities as well as the creation of many new healthcare institutes. This has created a number of exciting new career opportunities for doctors interested in working in Saudi Arabia.
