Saudi Licensing Exam (SLE) or Saudi Medical Board Exam


For all those Doctors who want to work as a GP or as a Specialist in Saudi Arabia, there is a necessary test to be taken and that is Saudi Licensing Exam (SLE).

Saudi Licensing Exam (SLE) or Saudi Medical Board Exam is a "Saudi Commission for Health Specialties" (SCHS) exam for medical speciality or general practice licensing. It can either be taken inside Saudi Arabia or in several countries of the world. There is an Organization called Prometric, which provides testing and assessment skills. Prometric arranges SLE inside as well as outside Saudi. It also hold other exams for different institutions all over the world, one other example is the online USMLE exam.

SLE is a 2 hour exam taken on the computer, with 70 multiple choice questions. It is considered an easy exam to pass but getting high marks needs more work. This exam counts when you apply for jobs in Saudi Arabia. The exam for General Practice consists of MCQs from internal medicine, ophthalmology, gynae/obstetrics, paediatrics, surgery, statistics and psychiatry. As the MCQs are often repeated, it is a good idea to read the old questions, many such papers are available on the internet.

Some Useful Books:
1. First Aid for the USMLE step 3
2. Oxford Handbook of Clinical Specialties
3. Comprehensive Review for Saudi Licence Exam by Dr Yahya M Al-Khladi

Click Here to visit the Prometric site to take the test inside or outside the Saudi Arabia.

Hi there, in order work as a doctor in Saudi Arabia, you are obviously required to take the SLE exam as far as I know. Will you then be provided with a *License to Practice*?

I would like to know, what documents are required in order to apply for this SLE exam?

Once you have passed this exam, what documents are needed to get an actual job as a physician in KSA?
