The doctors were upgraded and promoted to the level of specialist registrar after studying certain criteria which included at least 10 years of work experience at the DHA and high achievements.
Humaid Mohammad Obaid Al Qutami, chairman of the board of the DHA, said: “In every field, particularly in the medical field, human resources play a vital role in the growth and development of the sector.
