Applying for admission as a doctor in Germany with professional training abroad


In order to obtain a state license to practice medicine, the so-called Approbation, you must have your professional qualification acquired abroad recognized in Germany. In the recognition procedure, the competent authority compares your professional qualification acquired abroad with the German professional qualification and checks the equivalence.

In addition to the equivalence of the professional qualification, you must meet further requirements for the permit to be issued. For example, sufficient German language skills and health suitability are important.

You can also obtain a license to practice medicine in Germany with a professional qualification from a so-called third country. Third countries are all countries that do not belong to the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), as well as Switzerland.

There is no deadline.
