Mumaris Plus: The SCFHS Portal Explained
<p>Healthcare workers around the world who wish to <a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/whitepaper-a-healthcare-professionals-guide-to-working-in-the-kingdom-of-saudi-arabia/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">work in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia</a> (KSA) need to be<a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/guide-register-health-practitioner-saudi-arabia/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"> accredited by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS)</a>. As an overseas healthcare professional, you need to get your credentials classified before your professional license can be issued. To do that, you need to register using the SCFHS portal: <a href="https://portal.scfhs.org.sa/en-US/Account/Login" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Mumaris Plus</a>.</p> <h2>The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties</h2> <p><a href="https://www.scfhs.org.sa/en/about/pages/organization.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties</a>, or better known as the SCFHS (sometimes shortened to SCHS), is the regulating authority that sets the standards for healthcare professionals to practice in the KSA. The SCFHS has a say in anything to do with the medical industry in the KSA. If you’re going to build a hospital, you must coordinate with the SCFHS. If you want to practice a medicine-related profession, you have to register with the SCFHS. If you studied a healthcare course in the KSA to pursue a career in the medical field, the SCFHS would issue your diploma and other credentials. The SCFHS also develops and supervises medical education and health-related programs in line with the general education program.</p> <h2>Why do you need a Mumaris Plus account?</h2> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1000" height="667" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_1756191701-1.jpg" alt="" class="wp-image-10883" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_1756191701-1.jpg 1000w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_1756191701-1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/shutterstock_1756191701-1-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></figure> <p>As a healthcare professional intending to work in the KSA, you need to have a permit to practice there. The permit comes in the form of a health or medical license. To begin applying for your license, <a href="https://portal.scfhs.org.sa/en-US/Account/Login#signup" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">create an account on Mumaris Plus</a>, the unified portal for all SCFHS services for healthcare practitioners. If you have been registered or have an SCFHS profile in the previous Mumaris portal, you can <a href="https://portal.scfhs.org.sa/en-US/Account/GetRegistrationId" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">request to retrieve it</a> using your SCFHS profile number or your National/Iqamah ID. There is no need to create a new account if you already have an old one. If you have previously registered with the SCFHS and already have an email address associated with your account, just click “I forgot my password” on the login page. The Mumaris Plus portal will send you a reset password link for you to log in with.</p> <h2>Mumaris Plus account issues</h2> <p>If you encounter any issues or problems using the portal, all you have to do is create a ticket on the <a href="https://www.scfhs.org.sa/en/eservices/Pages/MumarisPlusTawasul.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Tawasul-Mumaris +</a> page, previously known as ‘<a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/scfhs-licensing/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Tawasul</a>.’ If you get locked out of your Mumaris Plus account, you don’t need to create a ticket here.
