Specialist/Residency Medical Training

Thank you for your interest in an advanced training or position as physician at the University Hospital Cologne.

In order to apply for a post graduate specialist/residency or advanced medical training (Facharztausbildung),  or to work as a physician in Germany you need a German license to practice medicine (Deutsche Approbation) and your German language skills should be at level 4 or 5 of the Common European Framework of Reference (TestDaF or level B2.2/C1 at the Goethe Institute). For studies in human medicine you can choose between two ways to achieve this goal. In case you studied dentistry you have to go for the knowledge exam (Kenntnisprüfung).
