Germany

Germany is one of the most preferred destinations for Indian students looking to do MBBS Abroad in Europe since, first, the tuition fees are at least in comparison to the other destinations abroad offering MBBS program. German medical education is even listed as the best medical system in the world for providing world-class medical education.

Human medicine training degrees take at least six years and three months to complete and conclude with the state examination (Ärztliche Prüfung). This examination (if you pass) leads to your official Licence to Practice Medicine (Approbation). You’ll complete your medical studies in the following stages:

Stage 1: pre-clinical phase This stage is four semesters (two years) long and will introduce you to the key basics of natural sciences and medicine. It concludes with the first medical licensing examination

 

Stage 2: clinical phase This is the main phase of study (six semesters – three years) comprised of the core subjects, taught in lectures, practical courses, internships and seminars
Stage 3: practical year The main phase of study is followed by a practical year. This is one-year of clinical training, in which you’ll be introduced to the practical aspects of surgery, internal medicine and an elective subject. This phase provides on-the-job experience to prepare you for your future profession

 

Stage 4: State Examination The last step in completing your medical degree in Germany is to pass the State Examination, a nationally standardised examination. After taking and passing the examination, you can apply for your medical license (Approbation) and begin working as a certified doctor.

 

*PLEASE NOTE: MBBS in Germany is NOT taught in English medium.

  2. Strong knowledge of English, in order to understand specialist literature.
  3. Extensive high school knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics (85% plus grades in High school)
