Saudi Arabia sacks Pakistani doctors with MS, MD degrees

Saudi ministry of health has rejected Pakistan’s MS,MD degree, claiming it lacks structured training programme, a mandatory requirement to hire medics against important positions. This comes as a shock to hundreds of highly qualified medics who are now rendered jobless. After KSA, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain also removed the degrees from eligibility list of highest paid tier.

The same degree programme offered by India, Egypt, Sudan and Bangladesh was acceptable in Saudi Arabia and other countries. Pakistan will face a huge loss of foreign remittance in addition to sufferings of the medics in the form of joblessness.
