The German language certificate for doctors



You will need this certificate in order to obtain a free practice authorisation (Approbation). 

      It is paramount for a doctor who seeks a job Germany, Austria or Switzerland to hold a German language certificate according to the desired land requirements.


     As of March 2017, all of the German lands require doctors to take a supplementary test on medical terminology, on top of holding a B2/C1 German language certificate.
