medical manpower in saudi arabia current situation
Medical Manpower in Saudi Arabia – Current Situation
  • Only less than 17% of the doctors in Saudi Arabia are Saudis.
  • Over 80% of health professionals are Expatriates.
  • The Average no. of people per physician :
  • Saudi Arabia: 588 USA: 358 UAE: Germany: 285
  • ( Source: WHO 2003 )

Currently, there is an acute shortfall of qualified medical personnel. This gap is met through the import of skilled medical personnel from abroad, at a cost of SAR 15 billion. With the increasing efforts for Saudisation, the coming years will see an even heavier demand for skilled Saudi medical professionals.

The number of health physicians, nursing staff, and Allied Health personnel in the Kingdom has grown at a compounded annual growth rate of .9%, 1.9%, and 6%, respectively, between the years 1995 and 1999. According to this growth rate, combined with the current population levels, crude death and birth rates, and life expectancy rates, the ratio of doctors to patients will not reach the International standard of 1/358, even by the year 2050.

  • Development of knowledge and experience transfer to a new and high profitable business field for German Universities by Zero-Financial Investment ( but fare away from false clichees – not all Arabs have an oil-source in their garden ; We have also to calculate our return of invest – because it‘s an international very competetive market )
