Fast Track Solutions simplifies specialised healthcare hiring

DUBAI, January 24, 2022

Fast Track Solutions, a leading healthcare recruitment agency, has reformed the way hiring is done in UAE medical sector, which needs nearly 16,000 health professionals and specialty doctors by 2025.  
With operations in UAE, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, 10,000+ specialised pool of candidates, 25+ sourcing countries and 82+ licences procured, Fast Track solutions provides end to end consultancy services in recruitment and career counselling of medical professionals in the healthcare Industry.
Apart from local demand for tertiary care, growth is also driven by booming medical tourism that saw around 350,118 visitors, registering a rise of 4% in medical tourism arrivals in 2019. 
Dubai and Abu Dhabi are attracting medical tourists from world over; both the cities are ranked 6th and 9th respectively as per Medical Tourism Index as most popular medical tourism destinations in 2020-2021.  
Commenting on the growth of medical tourism and subsequent talent acquisition, Seema Zaidi, Director, Fast Track Solutions, said: “Post pandemic the medical tourism is expected to rise at record levels as visitors from GCC, African and Middle Eastern countries are looking for excellent treatment. Hospitals in UAE are offering exceptional infrastructure, specialised doctors and advanced care at affordable costs. Top specialty healthcare includes cancer treatment, cosmetic procedures, fertility procedures, dermatology, and orthopedics. Highly skilled doctors are looking to relocate to UAE because of better infrastructure, higher salaries, and long-term visas.”
Fast Track Solutions aces in hiring for niche specialties such as super-specialised doctors like paediatric subspecialists, medical oncologists, hemato-oncologists, interventional radiologists, IVF experts, spine specialists, radiologists (MSK), fetal medicine etc. 
Adding further Zaidi said: “We have successfully placed super specialised doctors in different specialties such as fetal medicine, medical oncologists, pediatric neurologists etc, for startup as well as established hospitals. These positions are difficult to fill as the talent available with right qualifications, experience and DHA/MOH/DOH licenses is limited. Since we have vast pool of database from UK, US, Australia, Canada Germany, India, New Zealand, Middle East, we were able to fill up these positions in record time.”
Fast Track acts as a consultant for their clients by providing customised solutions in non-clinical roles as well such as Marketing, HR, and Finance etc. For instance the agency has successfully placed Head of Service Excellence and Insurance Head with adequate healthcare experience for leading Hospitals in UAE. 
Healthcare recruitment differs from other industry recruitments as it is an extremely demanding career, with patient lives on the line every day. Hence a number of special considerations have to be kept in mind while managing recruitment.  For safe hiring Fast Track Solutions focuses on verifying candidates’ background through technology enable screening services. 
The candidates undergo series of interviews, verifications, reference checks, tests and licence verification process as per UAE compliance to make them suitable for the job. 
The agency not just offers support to hospitals but also takes care of candidates, their on boarding, training etc. so they are well placed and grow in their organisation. 
“After all our goal is to better patient experiences, better outcomes, and lower costs,” added Zaidi.
