17 clinical and non-clinical conferences on offer at prestigious regional event

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: The region’s only dedicated healthcare recruitment and career development fair returns to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 27 – 29 October 2017 where hundreds of leading healthcare organisations, clinics and medical device companies will be looking to discuss career opportunities with the 10,000+ job seekers over the three day event. With a recent survey from Gulf Talent reporting that healthcare companies, including hospitals, have the second highest rate of jobs growth in the GCC, with 55% of firms planning headcount expansion, this positive trend is expected to drive recruitment activities at the show.

Organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, the fourth edition of the Healthcare Recruitment & Training Fair looks set to be the largest yet with 17 healthcare conferences on offer to delegates. These include 11 CME-accredited clinical conferences and six business-oriented masterclasses designed to embrace the entire spectrum of healthcare in the UAE.

The conferences will be focused more on clinical specialties this year and include new fields such as metabolic syndrome, heart disease, ENT, wound care and respiratory diseases. Each track plans to cover advancements in science, technology, management techniques and clinical implementation which delegates can absorb and implement into their own career environment.

During the sessions there will be a range of seminars, panel discussions and interactive activities to complement the conferences. For example the metabolic syndrome conference will examine strategies for combating obesity and type 2 diabetes and feature talks by eminent healthcare professionals such as Dr Omar K Hallak, consultant interventional cardiologist at the American Hospital Dubai and Dr Hassan El-Tamimi, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences.

The wound care conference will be addressing the current state of wound care in the UAE and its increasing recognition as a specialist field. There will knowledgeable and in-depth discussions on diagnostic investigation and interpretation and speakers will share non-pharmacological methods to prevent wound complications and progression.

The six healthcare business conferences include a new hospital admin workshop hosted by the acclaimed trainer and motivational speaker Anne McDougall. The healthcare management conference will focus on the theme of strategically optimising value added services, and there will be top marketing strategists in attendance at the revamped social media and marketing conference to discuss how best to connect with the appropriate markets. Given the level of competition between healthcare providers in the Middle East, it is more vital than ever for institutions to set themselves apart from the competition.

What is more, delegates will be able to take advantage of some first-class networking opportunities and share best practice with industry experts and leaders, all while earning CME points.

In addition to the new clinical conferences and free business and leadership conferences, there will be almost 1,000 onsite jobs made available by the 100 exhibiting international hospitals and organisations including positions for medical and non-medical professionals and roles in sales, marketing, HR and administration.

Tom Coleman, group exhibition director of Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, said: “This event is invaluable to anyone who works in the healthcare industry or those individuals from other industries looking for a more challenging career. There is a unique opportunity to meet key hiring personnel from the region’s major healthcare companies and leading hospitals. There is even the chance to pre-schedule face-to-face interviews at the event to make sure delegates’ time is spent productively. There is no substitute for meeting potential employers in the flesh.

“Of course, in addition to this, there is what Informa Life Sciences terms as an “exhibition with education” and our excellent onsite conferences and workshops underline this. It also presents that unique opportunity to network and share insights with fellow professionals.”

The strategic partner for this event is the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and gold sponsors include Al Zahira Hospital Dubai, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Passport USA and the Awazen Medical Center.
