German for Physicians

Achieving approbation with professional language courses

Preparation courses for the German "Medical Language Exam"

In order for physicians from EU countries to practice in Germany, they must receive medical approbation by first passing the B2 "General Language Test."  This, in turn, is the prerequisite for taking the special C1 level "Medical Language Exam," (Fachsprachprüfung), which tests the specialist knowledge of German needed for everyday work in a hospital.

On the way toward this goal we will accompany you with the following language course modules:

Medical terminology for physicians (Level C1) ("Fachsprachkurs") 8 weeks
This course with 30 units/week over a period of 8 weeks covers special medical terminology and deals with topics that are relevant for the medical terminology examination and for the later practice of your profession in Germany. The courses are conducted by teachers specially trained for instruction in medical areas and who have many years of teaching experience.
