  • Due to the demographic development and the regulation of work times according to the EU directives, many hospitals in Germany have a shortage of physicians – especially in rural areas.

Are the governmental conditions for working in Germany everywhere the same?

  • Generally yes, as the relevant law – the Bundesärzteordnung BÄO (Federal Regulation for Medical Practitioners) – is a federal law. In practice, however, the procedures differ considerably in single federal lands. Differing requirements apply in single lands especially for doctors entering from "non-EU countries) and applying for a limited work permit because of the existing shortage of physicians (§ 10 BÄO). Some lands, for instance, require an approval test …Anerkennungsprüfung; others do not. Choosing the right federal land is thus particularly important. We know the specific regulations and will consider them in the application processes.

Will I be welcome as a doctor working in German?

  • Yes. Many people in Germany have to wait long before they are treated by expert physicians. Especially in rural regions, doctors are urgently required. Every physician coming to Germany is thus welcome. Furthermore, of all professions in Germany physicians have the highest reputation. A prerequisite for you to feel at home in Germany are good German language skills – these are also a pre-condition of working as a doctor in a hospital.
