  1. is there the need for German language? and how to get the post of training? i am interested. also i already have a poat graduate degree in general surgery. would this allow me to skip the first few years and join to senior level training?

    1. Hello Tanin Aziz

      You may get credits for previous learning on account of your Post Graduate degree in General Surgery, but this can happen only after you obtain a training position by fulfilling all steps as required for a Doctor with basic degree in Medicine(MBBS).

      Yes. One needs to learn German. I have sent a separate email to you which will help you decide whether this meets your career goals.
