you're very much welcome. :-) im a neophyte in saudi and still about to be deployed. they would always tell me that government hospitals in saudi provide better benefits. i will be working at king fahad hospital in jeddah (hopefully). i think the rate/salary will be based on your number of experience. rates are higher also if you are in special areas like, icu, er, or..
benefits in government hospitals:
- free tickets
- free accommodation
- free food or additional allowance for the food
- free transportation, to and from the hospital
- free sets of uniform
- 30-45 days annual vacation leave, with free roundtrip ticket in the country of origin.
- contract renewable yearly
tip: to be placed in good hospitals/cities, you must
get a high
score in their qualifying exams and delegate's interview. according to the office, that will determine placement.
