Hi all,

I'm confused about the situation of DO's in the middle east. The official international DO information shows that their are a couple practicing in UAE with no problems. Lebanon and Saudi Arabia also give no problems. However, there's no information about Jordan. Anyone knows the situation over there?

Thanks for your time

The AOA did not receive a response from Jordan to its request for information on how a U.S. educated D.O. could obtain licensure. You need to contact the Jordanian Ministry of Health and check to see if you're eligible for the licensure exam offered to foreign physicians that did not have their medical education in Jordan. Another good contact would be AUB, they are very familiar with physicians in the area, and might know how to contact DO's in Jordan.
