Additional notes
Working and living in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can be both difficult and frustrating at times, particularly for females. Working hours are long, communications can be difficult and most newcomers will experience a degree of culture shock. It is essential to come equipped with an open mind, a sense of humour, and a positive attitude. You must be prepared to give yourself time to assimilate to the new culture, the new environment and to give yourself time to make new friends.

This hospital can also provide language courses to new employees and students.
