Many doctors, especially from India are concerned about the “long” duration of PG Specialist training in Germany. This is because they tend to compare the PG Specialist title with the MD/MS granted in India. One needs to understand that the PG Specialist Training in Germany results in a “Specialist” title, which is comparable with the “Super-Specializations” in India and NOT with MD/MS. When seen in this light, its evident that the duration is not long after all.
