      Hello DR Gahlawat

      1.The first step is the initial screening. It takes 3-4 working days and done over email. It has a fee of INR 25,000. Screening fee is refunded if one does not clear the screening. You may start language training if screening is positive.

      2. After reaching B1 level in German language, you need to sign a legal undertaking(this document basically defines our mutual expectations) and pay the first installment of Euro 4000.

      3. After #2, our German counter-part touches base with you and begin your online preparation till you arrive in Germany.

      4. After you obtain B2 level, balance of Euro 8000 is paid. You may also need to open a blocked account in a German bank and deposit Euro 8040-This is your living expense for 12 months.

      5. After #4, Visa and travel to Germany to enter our PGMP (Post-Graduate Mentoring program)

      During the PGMP, you will be appearing for Temporary and Permanent licensing(Approbation) exams. Candidates tend to get placed during the last stage of PGMP. Once you obtain a training contract, you join the hospital after work-permit is granted.

      As a PG Medical Specialist trainee, you are entitled to a minimum salary of Euro 4024/PM. This is for a 40hours work week. More hours attract extra wages.
