More than 35% of the German population is above 55 years. The need to make up for skill shortages in specialist areas means that there are lots of opportunities for qualified doctors to find work here. Second, the country, on an average, needs 6000 doctors annually. To validate please log on to

Fresh MBBS graduates from India can earn minimum Euro 48,000 annually while pursuing speciality. By the time it gets completed the salary gets double as well. However, the medical profession is strictly regulated and there are some conditions for international doctors.

The doctor needs to clear the German Medical Licensing Exam. This exam when compared to MCI is easier. Learning German and the field specific terminology in the language makes one eligible or trained to clear this licensing exam.
