About this course

Physicians from third countries have to learn languages and specialist knowledge quickly in order to keep up with the pace of work in German hospitals. In contrast to all the language courses which focus only on the German language, this course aims at providing additional content-related subject matter. Thus, we help not only overcome language barriers but also prepare you for a career entry in the best possible way.

    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 discover 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.
