  3. Hello. I am a radiologist from India. MD finished in 2015.
    I am planning to relocate to Germany. I wanted to know whether I can practise in Germany with my specialist degree?

    1. Hello

      While MBBS is recognised as a basic medical qualification in Germany(though not equivalent to German degree), but PG qualifications gained in India are not recognised. So, you will need to follow the same path as that of an MBBS candidate to obtain a SPECIALIST(PG)training position and complete the training. However, you stand to gain credits for previous learning/higher skills based on the assessment by the Chief Training Specialist after you obtain a SPECIALIST training position- thus reducing the duration of the training. Ather this training, you can work as a SPECIALIST in Germany.

      Please check your mail and respond to the Qualifying questionnaire for PG in Germany. Please check your SPAM folder, just in case.

      Regards
