Formalities for Physicians (Medical Doctors from EU-States

Generally EU citizens, who have already completed their medical training, are allowed to work as physicians in Germany. The constitution of Germany gives most government power to its 16 constituent Bundesländer (states). They have to get their Approbation (license to practise medicine) from the state health authorities (Bezirksregierung), who are the responsible licensing bodies.  

The second step for doctors after getting approbation is to register  themselves with the responsible state medical associations (Landesärztekammer). Applicants must prove, that they have sufficient knowledge of the German language (kleines Sprachdiplom vom Goethe Institut) . 

The Citizens of the EU-Countries need a Residence Permit, but not a Work Permit.

Working as a specialist

Applicants, who had already completed their post-graduate training and want to work in Germany as specialists, have to submit their qualifications to the responsible state medical association (Ländesärztekammer). They determine the acceütamce of diplomas.
