02 January 2012
   His Excellency the Minister of Health, Dr. Abdullah Bin AbdulAziz AL Rabeeah, received yesterday a number of Health Diploma holders at the meeting room of the MOH Headquarters. His Excellency has listened to their demands and questions, stressing that the Ministry of Health is keen to designate the new employees in accordance with the hospitals' formations classifications, and job vacancies.
Dr. AL Rabeeah clarified that when the candidates are equal in qualification, specialization and sex, the priority will be given to Saudi candidates. Moreover, he noted that the Ministry will soon offer bridging programs in cooperation with the Ministry of Higher Education after studying the requests submitted by those wishing to complete the study of the specialization, which emphasizes the MOH's keen interest in making optimal use of the graduates of all specialties.
In addition, the Minister of Health stressed that the MOH employment opportunities are developed according to a specific mechanism that works in full coordination with the Ministry of Civil Service.
Dr. AL Rabeeah pointed out that the Ministry of Health is accounted for 50% of health services in the Kingdom, while 30% of health services are distributed among all other health sectors, and 20% for the private sector.
On the other hand, there are some difficulties facing Saudi health practitioners working in the private sector. In this regard, Dr. AL Rabeeah stated that all the issues that citizens suffer from are taken into consideration. The MOH has made some observations and filed them to the concerned authority to be discussed and find solutions to overcome them for the graduates’ best interest. In addition, he pointed out that the private health sector is complementary to the system of health services in the Kingdom.
It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Health has employed 4000 Health Diploma holders in cooperation with the Ministry of Civil Service, in accordance with a Royal Decree.  This is to be added to the 75.000 persons who had been employed over the past few years.
