WELCOME

to the
GCC eHealth
Workforce
Development
Conference

The GCC Taskforce on Workforce Development in Digital Healthcare envisions a sustainable digital health ecosystem through a skilled and empowered local eHealth workforce. We believe that by all stakeholders - government, education, industry, healthcare organisations and others - working together across the GCC region, we can develop a framework for standards and professional development in eHealth that not only creates a loyal, long-term workforce but offers a future for all our young population.

At the GCC eHealth Workforce Development Conference (eHWDC 2018) in Abu Dhabi, 27-29 November 2018, we will provide a discussion forum for all the involved stakeholders as well as workshops and training sessions for medical and IT professionals.
Now is the time to invest in the eHealth workforce and professional development.
