Try searching the ministry of health website (links at the end of this post), The exam is of 2 part MCQs and if you pass with this they will call you for the interview (Viva).
The doctors can try for a job in private hospitals and apply for a medical licence while you are at work. Getting a job in private sector in the UAE is much easier, but working hours are more and pay is less.When you pass with the licence you are allowed to work in Ministry hospitals in the Emirates except Dubai and Abudhabi, these two emirates have a different licensing. The applicants can submit the application in MOH office in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. (you can find the address with phone numbers at the end of this post)

MOH exam is held in Dubai, application can either be submitted in MOH office in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi. Successful pass of MOH examinations entitled the doctors to take the job in ministry of health hospitals and reputed private hospitals. Your performance in the exam is important you will be evaluated after the exam whether you are qualified to work only in Private hospitals or both private and ministry hospital.

I will explain on the registration in Dubai and Abu Dhabi you need to pass the licensing exam of DOH or GAHS to work in work in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi national hospitals respectively. After you pass the DOH or GAHS try applying with the ministry hospitals and private hospitals. They will pass the information regarding the job openings after you qualify the MOH, DOH or the GAHS, but don’t wait for this you can start trying by approaching different hospitals, it’s your responsibility to find a job and successful passing of the exams will support you to get you the job.

The DHA/DOH exam is only panel interview and there is no written exam, but MOH has two parts panel interview and written exam.

A DHA/DOH allows you to work in Dubai while the MOH will qualify you to work in any other emirate besides Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

You need to check with the concern authority on the experience required to practice in Dubai and other emirates of UAE because the requirements by the ministry keep changing. Usually the ministry ask for MDS with some experience to practice as a Dental General practise and MDS with 3 years for practicing as a Dental Specialist.
