Verification of academic degrees at the Medical Faculty of the UoC

At the request of former students, ZIB Med can verify academic degrees and the duration and dates of studies at the Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne.
This requires that ZIB Med be given written permission by the former student involved.

Requests and application forms should be sent by post or email to ZIB Med.

Please note that it may take some time to respond to the requests.

ZIB Med is able to check and verify the following qualifications:

  • First Section of the Medical State Examination (Physikum)
  • Second and Third Section of Medical State Examination
  • Doctorate (Dr. med., Dr. med. dent., Dr., Dr. rer. medic)

If requested ZIB Med can issue a Medical School Transcript. This document describes the individual subjects studied and gives the number of hours of study in each case. It also lists all the different forms of practical work experience completed by the student (nursing internship, clinical traineeship (Famulatur), parts of the year of clinical training (PJ)). Students or former students must show ZIB Med the relevant original certificates, or officially certified copies of them, in order to have work experience placements verified in the Transcript.
