Medical Language Course German B2/C1 in Class
The Medical Language Course (FSP) follows the previous B2 language test (Standard Language) in the institute or, for external participants, the telc B2 or Goethe B2 exam, the TestDaF or the DSH. In this course, the participants are prepared for the medical language examination of the medical associations or the telc German B2 / C1 Medicine Specialist Language Examination.
In order to work as a doctor in Germany, you need a state license (Approbation) or temporary professional license (Berufserlaubnis). In Germany, those approvals are linked to the acquisition of certain qualifications. This includes, in particular, proof of general language skills at level B2, the medical language at level C1 and the „knowledge test“ (Kenntnisprüfung), if you have completed your studies in a Non-EU Country.
This process of qualification includes many organizational and administrative processes – especially with regard to preparatory courses and registration for exams – we will be happy to support and accompany you in this process.
