National Ambulance

UAE Nationals

National Ambulance shares the vision and commitment of the UAE Government to developing local talent in the critical health sector. This is reflected in our Emiratisation policy, which is a central pillar of our corporate strategy. Whether working in frontline emergency medical teams or the vital functions that support clinical care, Emiratis at National Ambulance can be assured that their capabilities and skills will be developed to empower them in their careers.

In line with our commitment to support the Emiratisation of the UAE medical sector, over the last five years, we have trained and prepared Emiratis to serve on the frontline of emergency medical service (EMS) as part of our Emirati Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Programme which was established in 2017.

Currently, we offer student sponsorship opportunities for the EMS programmes at Fatima College of Health Sciences and the Higher Colleges of Technology. Successful graduates will be employed as Emergency Medical Technicians with National Ambulance to work on the frontline in service of their community.
