Formalities for Physicians (Medical Doctors) from non-EU-States

Generally for the citizens from non-EU-countries, who have already completed their medical training, it is difficult to get work permission to work in the health instiutions in Germany. Physicians from non-EU-Countries need the following: 

A. Residence Permit (Aufenthaltserlaubnis)

B. Working Permit (Arbeits- und Berufserlaubnis)

C. License to practise medicine (Approbation): The constitution of Germany gives most government powers to its 16 constituent Bundesländer (states). The foreign medical graduates from non-EU-States  have to get the Approbation from the responsible state authorities (Bezirksregierung) as licensing bodies. 

Some States demand  a so called Adaptationtime (Anpassungszeit) before giving a "Approbation". In this Case the Applicants have to work with a preliminary Professionpermit (vorläufiges Berufserlaubnis) between  12 or 18 Months, depending from which Country they are coming,  in a Hospital. The Adaptation-Time must be split between the departments internal medicine, surgery and a third Specialty. 

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