Hello, sag Mir, how does it go?
Re: Medical Doctors Going To Germany, Let's Meet Here! by ProfOrlando: 9:42am On Jun 17, 2017
hello my very good friend mowah ,

first of all learn german language till B2 ... u hav to clear the B2 exam ..it takes from 6 mnths to 1 year tym..after that u can submit your complete translated document in any of the provinces of your choice in germany .. each province is different .. our Nigerian degrees are not recognized here . So the aurhorities will take out your equivalnce and will book a C1 ( medical understanding / fachsprachprüfung) appointmnt for u .. u can join academies for the preperation of this test .. its relatively easy.. after that they will giv u a work permit ( Beruferlaubnis) so that u can work in a hospital in order to prepare urself for the big exam ( kenntnisprüfung) . Thr work permit is usually for 2 years! U can also join academies to prepare fr dis exam too !! Its an oral exam but a deep thorough medical evaluation is done !! Every thing in german !!! After clearing this exam , u get ur liscence! A little difficult path but not impossible !!


Viel Glück mein lieber Bruder wink

Dank viel bro, is the exam in Germany?
Re: Medical Doctors Going To Germany, Let's Meet Here! by tuscani: 4:22pm On Jun 20, 2017
Thanks for this thread, but you did not mention anything about aprobation, secondly is it really possible to learn German in to b2 level in 6 months to one year ? . I have been trying my best to apply to any of the federal state, the sad part is that most of the state reply email inquiries with German language expecially those states in the east. Please do you know how to learn German easily.

Hello, approbation is what you get after passing those two exams for a particular state, it just shows equivalence to a German medical degree.

I think the most important thing is to learn German language first.
the best and easiest way to learn it is by Goethe-institut in Lagos Island, you can start by competing Duolingo in about 2 months so that you'll find the lectures at Goethe institut much easier. it will take you exactly 12 months to get to B2 level and I'll recommend only Goethe institut and nowhere else because , you could have fluency problems like some of my colleagues who speak German with a bad accent which wouldn't be good enough for you.

Thank you ProfOrlando for your inputs.
I am a final year medical student in Nigeria and I'm planning to do my residency in Germany. Apart from learning German up to B2 level, are there other things I need to prepare for?
Also, I did not get your explanations about submission and translation of medical certificate. Kindly expand on it.
Regards!

well, you just need to learn German up to B2 Level, do your house job in your home country and apply for your visa, for now , what matters most is your language skills and clinical skills. When you get to Deutschland, you can enroll in academies such as
FIA Freiburg International Academy. which would prepare you for the approbation exam in about 3-6 months.....
as for the submission and translation, it's not a big deal.when your applying online you'll just need to upload your documents both in the original form and the translated form *(in German)

Thank you proforlando for this very useful thread.

Please can you give more information about the cost implication (or the approximate estimate).
That is, for the approbation and kenntnisprufrung examinations, the Academy fees and other financial needs.

Also, like how much will one earn with the initial work permit?

Thank you.

Thank you.

As at 2014, approbation cost about €350 and the tuition fee for the FIA was about €2000. so, it should still remain around that range.
As for the Salary,though it is not as high as what one would earn in USA or Australlia, it is quite much as doctors earn more in Germany than any other country in Europe including the U.K. The salary could really vary depending on the location and hospital. from €5,000 per month in Berlin and Hamburg, to €4,300 per month in Munich, €3,800 in Freiburg and cologne and €2000 per month in Rüdesheim am Rhein and Bielefeld.

Thank you for the information.
The payment is actually worth the stress of learning a new language cheesy. €2000 is consultants salary in Nigeria.

I remember you said the initial working permit lasts for 2 years. What happens if per chance, one fails the "big exam".

Also, what is the likelihood of an African getting placement for residency in surgery specialties like orthopedic or plastic.

Danke!

Re: Medical Doctors Going To Germany, Let's Meet Here! by BLACKBOY19: 6:39pm On Sep 20, 2017
Currently doing A2 @ Goethe. I won't advise you to equate Duolingo to actual german classes. German has its technicalities...the language get comma small. grin

Just take out time to learn the language, then move!

I am done with nysc very soon and I might move after B1.

Ich kann jetzt ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen.

Alles gute
