For anyone stumbling onto this thread...In 1980 I worked at Tawam Hospital in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates as a single American woman. The hospital was in its primitive infancy then and is now affiliated with Johns Hopkins Hospital of MD.
The laws and atmosphere in the Emirates are very different than Saudi. Women are allowed to drive, you need to dress discreetly in town, but on the coast...Dubai for example...the beach resorts are amazing and you can wear bathing suits, drink alcohol etc. The area has gone through vast changes since then, but I believe the basics remain the same.
It was the best time of my life. It is a different culture, but my philosophy was "when in Rome, do as the Romans". I had no problems traveling around, (never alone). You just have to use common sense and educate yourself on the customs and culture as you are in their country and should respect it.
There are lots of sites with info for Dubai. Google Respiratory Therapy Dubai or UAE. Another good site for info on travel positions in general is delphiforums.com
Maybe I'll see you there one day.
Best of luck,
Diana
FYI...the first International RC conference is being held in Dubai this fall.

Hi,
I searched Dubai Respiratory therapist. All of the agencies that I saw required at least 2 yr experience. You could try as a direct hire, I'm sure the HR people there could direct you through the paper work. I found it interesting that there were only permanent positions. If you searched and put yourself on a few email lists, something may come up.
The Respiratory community is vastly different from the way it was when I was there. I was excited to find that they formed an Emirates Society for Respiratory Care last Feb.
www.earcp.com/index.html
The contacts there are your best bet for accurate, up to date information. The Links section lists the hospitals, locations and web sites.
Now, my personal opinion:
If you are considering a travel position internationally or in the states, I would recommend that you wait until you have at least one year of critical care experience. Working in a chronic care facility provides you with great experience for that genre of patients, but you need to expand your skills and become proficient in acute care as well. Hospital staff expect a traveler to "hit the ground running" and be able to work the ER, ICUs and general floor care areas independently.
I was really humbled when I took my first travel assignment in AK. I came from a major teaching hospital where the therapists only worked in the intensive care areas. I thought I was prepared for anything, but non critical care is a huge part of a travelers responsibilities. EKGs, holter monitoring, bedside PFTs, just to name a few. The phlebotomy dept drew all of our ABGs, so I was only experienced with drawing from an art line. I was embarrassed on more than a few occasions by my lack of skills.
Also, if you don't have a passport, start that process now. I wish you the best of luck.

RT from the great white north. Loving the profession. Been to the Middle East for 11 years and loved it. To radhuidu in Tiruppur, India, get that license but be damn proud of your accent bhai saab!!! i sure am :)
and those who cant accept people based on something as simple as their accent don't deserve to be in a caring healthcare field to begin with.

peace and best of luck

Robin, don't bring accent here. You know many doctors you work with have different accent. They are all good. All you need is compassion and dedication. You are in globalized world. Grow up and change your attitude.

Hey Ivan Nemorin,
Are U aware that you'll be working 48 hrs a week? Did SA Int'l(Agengy) explain it clearly to you that the working hrs in Middle East the norm is 48 hrs/wk? and also, did they explain you'll be taxed on your overseas income when you filed your tax returns?

That is such BS.
Ignore this ignorant person.
UAE is nothing like the rest of the middle east.
I worked there for 2 years. Wore what I wanted, drank alcohol, drove> all legal.
UAE is 85% expats and only 15% nationals.
awesome place to work, Live. Good money, good role as an RRT, good travel.

Jobless RT in Los Angeles, California

37 months ago

I am very interested in going abroad to Dubai for an RT contract. Which company/contractor is the best to go to? I am a male, so there would be no problems for me living and working in the Middle East.

Also, I am getting conflicting reports on whether or not the income you make will be taxed once you get back onto US soil and file taxes.

Thank you very much for you replies.
