About this course

Due to time constraints, a lot of physicians who want to work in Germany cannot participate in our intensive course. For this reason, we have decided to offer a part-time evening course. The course takes place 2 to 3 times a week (also possible on weekends) and is available online. We help you to make your dream of becoming a doctor in Germany come true!

Participants learn:

  • German for physicians: A1–B2

    Learn the German language with a course specially tailored to physicians. Our curriculum is based on the requirements of the medical profession and the German language test Fachsprachprüfung (FSP).

    Gain an insight into the German social security system and get to know your career opportunities in Germany.

  • Application for medical hospitation

    We help you with your applications for hospitations within our network of teaching and partner hospitals. This way, you can improve your language skills while gaining insights into daily life in a German hospital.
