Undergraduate Medical Education

Basic medical education starts after completing secondary school education of 12 to 13 grade and holding Abitur or Fachabitur certification.

Germany has many medical schools (List of medical schools can in Germany can be seen here) Basic medical education is taught in German.

Studying medicine in Germany allows you to work as a doctor in all European countries and many other countries in the world. Undergraduate medical education requires 12 semesters (6 years) compulsory full time. The study period is divided as follows:

  • Preclinical study: 2 years.
  • Clinical study:3 years
  • Internship: 1 year

At the end of each module mentioned above, students have to pass a state exam called Approbation (Approbationsordnung für Ärzteand present a thesis at end of their education. Upon graduation they are titled as Dr.med.

Foreign students who want to study medicine in Germany, usually their high school qualification is not accepted in Germany and they should complete one year “Studienkolleg” course which will make them eligible to study medicine in German university. For further evaluation of their secondary school education abroad they should check this link (in German). (also see Foreign students who want to study medicine in Germany)

For a number of universities, international applications should be submitted via the University Application Service for International Students, (uni-assist). Usually basic and postgraduate medical education in state universities is free of cost for locals and foreign students. Foreign students can find scholarship or stipends for living and other expenses on Daad (a huge database for basic and postgraduate education). While local and EU/EEA students can also get monthly stipend from Federal Student Financial Aid Program or BAföG.

More information about Germany medical residency or specialty training  (in German).

License/Registration

In order to practice medicine or carry out specialty training in Germany, all foreign medical & dental graduates should get license so called Approbation from local state health authority where they want to practice medicine in. Foreign medical qualifications are recognized by State Health Authorities. (see below application procedure).

There are two types of recognition of foreign basic and specialist medical qualification/training in Germany:

  • Automatic recognition (qualification/training completed in EU/EEA and Switzerland)
  • General system for the recognition of evidence of training (education/training completed outside EU/EEA and Switzerland)

Medical specialists qualification and training are recognized or validated by State Chambers of Physician.

To work as medical doctor or specialist in Germany, all foreign doctors should be fluent in German language. Most states require B2 level of German proficiency while some of them need C1 level of German language to issue license.

1. Working and training in Germany with EU/EEA/Swiss qualification:

Foreign medical doctors or specialists with qualification and/or training completed in any of EU/EEA/Swiss area countries, their qualification is automatically recognized in Germany and once they have registered with the state health authority (for basic medical qualification) and State Chambers of Physicians (for any additional specialists qualification), they will be issued license to practice and/or train in Germany.

2. Working and training in Germany with Non EU/EEA/Swiss qualification:

Foreign medical doctors or specialists with qualification and/or training completed outside EU/EEA/Swiss countries, their qualification is not automatically recognized in Germany. Their need to apply for registration with the state health authority (for basic medical qualification) and State Chambers of Physicians (for any additional specialists qualification), they will be issued license to practice and/or train in Germany. But if their basic medical qualification is not recognized in Germany despite their clinical experience or any additional postgraduate diploma they will be required to sit for an aptitude test (details below in Examination section). After passing this test they will be issued license to practice medicine in Germany.

For Specialists, the State Chambers of Physician and the regional chambers of physicians are the main authorities responsible for the recognition of specialty training completed abroad. A physician must be a member of one of these 17 State Chambers of Physician before his or her specialist qualifications may be assessed for equivalence.

There is also possibility of getting Temporary license to practice medicine in Germany in certain conditions which is issued for maximum 2 years and can be extended. More information can be found here

    Hi all,

    I am Steven from Indonesia. I want to ask about residency training in Germany. I am currently studying MBBS in China (6 years), I have B2 certificate of Germany. If let say I have completed my degree including the internship in China, can I immediately register for medical residency ? And do I need to go back to my home country and get my registration certificates ? As I saw there is a need for Health authority registration certificate from home country as well as Professional experience certificate. Do I have other possible alternatives instead of going through the process of going back and get medical registration?

    Thank you for your kindly help.

      As Westindies hasnt signed bologna process so your qualification wont be considered equal to German one. You might need to sit for Licensure exam first to get license and then apply for PGship/residency there. So first of all start with German language B2 (in some states C1) and then proceed with licensing exam. details are in the post already

    Hi
    I am from Jordan but studied medicine in Russia where the medical course(MD) is 6 years. I would like to know if I am eligible for applying for a License/registration/residency in Germany immediately , once I have a B2/C1 knowledge of German language? And where can I find out If my basic medical qualification from Russia will be recognized in Germany and whether or no I will have to sit for an Approbation/aptitude exam.?
    Are you sure that I will not need licensing exam because all the sites are saying those outside the EU may need to sit for exam
    Or is it that all these schools outside the EU are reviewed on a case by case and some may have to write exam and others not?
    Can you just verify for me.

      well Since Russia has signed Bologna Process. So its qualification is recognized in Germany. you don’t need to sit for approbation or aptitude test. Just learn the language well.

    I graduated from Georgia Europe. Do I still need to write the licensing exam? My educational system is basically the same as russia or ukraine or any other european country.
    Georgia did sign the bologna process in 2005

    Hi Junaid
    Compliments of the season to you, my daughter is South African but studying in Romania. She is currently completing her final year of medical studies in Iasi, “GT Popa medical university” . Will appreciate your assistance in providing me with a recruitment agency in Germany for applying medical residency in any hospital. If possible the process of applying for residency.
    Your Help is greatly appreciated.
    Regards
    Pat Naidoo
