Job situation in Germany

The labour market for doctors has improved significantly in recent years. Income and working hours have been adjusted. However, the lack of doctors in many regions of Germany often leads to potentially unacceptable situations. The influx of foreign doctors, especially from eastern and south-eastern Europe, has also increased. The biggest obstacle for foreign doctors who want to come to Germany is usually a lack of German language skills. Germany can offer enormous opportunities for young doctors – including those from the UK. There are numerous training positions available in the main specialties (e.g. general internal medicine, surgery, psychiatry, and rehabilitation medicine/psychosomatics).

In order to be successful, however, applicants must possess sufficient language skills. Some reputable human resources consultancies offer support in career planning, free of charge.
