The Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) Examinations

The Examination Section has been established to provide a solid foundation for licensing health professionals practicing in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This is accomplished by providing assessment tools that measure core and specialist competencies required for each professional group.

Kindly note that healthcare professionals will first have to apply to Health Authority – Abu Dhabi.

You will be able to schedule an exam once credentialing has been done and approved.
