The ministry has also started to recruit doctors from Pakistan and Egypt.
According to sources in India, the team conducted interviews for 353 vacancies. The doctors selected are expected to arrive in the Kingdom shortly. The remaining vacancies would be filled in the next few weeks, the sources said.
A total of 313 specialist doctors have been selected from Delhi, 256 from Hyderabad and 145 from Cochin, the sources said. Advertisements detailing vacancies are published widely in leading Indian newspapers, job portals and medical journals.
The ministry's requirements are handled by 14 authorized recruitment agencies across India. The interviews are conducted personally by a Saudi committee comprising officials from various regional directorates and specialist doctors from the ministry.
The Saudi government's spending on health has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 18 percent between 2005 and 2012.
The total Saudi budget was SR690 billion in 2012 compared to SR580 billion in 2011, an increase of 19 percent. However, total spending on the healthcare sector increased 26 percent from SR68.7 billion in 2011 to SR86.5 billion in 2012.
