Excellent career chances for international medical doctors

Good news – medical doctors and other medical professionals are in high demand in Germany! The need to make up for skill shortages in various specialist areas means that there are lots of opportunities for qualified medical doctors to find work in Germany, especially in rural regions and smaller towns. The medical profession in Germany has high starting salaries and medical doctors are well paid throughout their careers. However, it is strictly regulated, and there are many conditions for international medical doctors to meet before they can work here.
