Information for junior doctors and medical specialists

(for non-EU doctors): we first assist you by providing invitation letters in order to receive the necessary Visa.

The German medical specialist has become a brand of his own. The German medical specialist stands for performance and quality, structure and knowledge, expertise and experience which provides hospitals and their patients the security of competence and safety.
Some very wealthy oil-countries send their junior doctors to follow their post-graduate medical training in Germany. They send their junior doctors with full scholarships to Germany in order to become a medical specialist. They do this due to the high level of quality which the German post-graduate medical training program provides. Therefore, Germany plays a significant role within the medical field. As such, German medical specialists are wanted worldwide!
Our service contains the complete guidance until you received a signed contract from a hospital in Germany, where you as a junior doctor can do a paid post-graduate training in order to become a medical specialist.

We offer full assistance by introducing you to clinics and hospitals, offering assistance for:

Germany consists 16 states (Bundesländer) with each having their own regulations and therefore also their own requirements. Because of our longtime experiences, we can guide you to the states where you can easily get your medical license to practice medicine in Germany. This mainly depends on your citizenship and where you visited the medical University.

VISA

In order to enter Germany as a non-EU citizen, you need to have a Visa.
If you are starting with German language courses in Germany, you need to have a Study-Visa. Later after finishing your language course and if we have found a position for you, then it is not necessary to go back to your Home-country.
In fact, we can organize in Germany to exchange your Study-visa into a Work-visa.

EU citizens do not need a Visa for Germany because they can travel all over Europe but you have to register yourself at the city registration office.

The new Visa regulations from 01.08.2012 (Blue Card) says that at first, you get a temporary Blue Card for 22 months. After this period you can already demand for a permanent Visa.

Language training

In order to get the right information, the conversation with your patients is very important to achieve the core task of your profession, namely healing your patient.
Therefore it is also necessary to be able to “ hear and listen between the lines”.

This is one of the main reasons why you should learn German in Germany!

Starting at the 1st of January 2016, you need to provide a C1 level German language diploma in order to get your license to practice medicine in Germany. Furthermore, in every state of Germany, the “Chamber of Doctors” organize a so called “Patient-Communication-Test”.
This oral exam checks your communication skills on C1 Level.
In Germany, there are a lot a language schools, but just a few of them are professional. After our longtime experience, we only work with really professional language schools. They are able to train our doctors in a way which is sufficient not to only integrate the doctors in the German society but more important in the German hospitals.

Be aware that only members of ALTE (Association of Language Testers in Europe) are professional language schools. Although there are a lot of language schools which name themselves e.g. “Academy of German Language” but still they are not professional. Only when they are member of the ALTE Associations, they are really professional.

Job interview

Before you start to do interviews in German hospitals, we have a special German application teacher who will prepare you for this interview. She knows exactly which questions the head of the medical department, the medical director and the head of HRM are going to ask you. For this very important job-interview, she will help you not only to improve your German language skills but also to perform convincing and with confidence.

Housing

If you arrive at the language school in Germany, we offer good housing with a separate bathroom and toilet. If you find a position in a hospital in Germany, the hospitals mostly offer accommodation for starting doctors. If not, we support you to find a convenient housing. The accommodation in small cities is quite cheap (for about 7 €/m²). In big cities like Munich or Berlin it goes up to 30-40 €/m².
