HOW DOES OUR PG Med/Surgery PATHWAY PROGRAM WORK?

Once enrolled into the Niche-FiBMed program, training begins with students taking their first steps towards mastering the German language. 

Learning a new language can often be daunting. However, our program is designed to help students learn basic German and acquire a B2 level of competency with ease before they leave for Germany. To be competent in German at the B2 level takes students approximately 490 hours of preparation and practice.

Around the same time, our online phase of medical training begins, running parallel to the language course. This includes online modules on topics connected to medical terminology in German language. This helps students get familiar with medical Terminology in German language even before their arrival in Germany. This online preparation enables you to rapidly progress towards passing your professional licensing exams in Germany.
