The Ministry of Health (MoH) is set to welcome an international influx of doctors who will visit the country in January, the MoH announced on Wednesday.
The teams of specialists, representing eleven different Arab and European nations, come from some of the world's most prestigious medical institutions in Brazil, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the United States, France and other countries.
In a press statement, Head of the Public Relations Department at the MoH Faisal Al-Dousari said that the visit serves as a platform for which to exchange ideas and discuss the latest research in the medical world. The doctors are comprised of pediatricians, dermatologists, neurologists, optometrists and plastic surgeons, the statement added.
Consulting with experts from an array of medical fields can only enhance the quality of medication in the country, Al-Dousari said. The latest protocols and strategies will be examined, he added.
Officials of the MoH routinely organize such initiatives in an effort to infuse some international expertise into the country's healthcare system.
