Vacancies in the German-speaking countries during April and May 2022.

13. April 2022.

Although the same language is necessary to apply for job openings throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria, the job application processes are very different. We go over the requirements that must be met for each country, as well as the benefits for each of these countries, with all of the doctors who are seriously considering relocating to a German-speaking country.

The great news is that all three countries are looking for both medical specialists and medical residents. Therefore, if you want to start or continue your specialization in Germany, Switzerland or Austria and you are at the B2-C1 level in German, you can now apply through this questionnaire.

We have compiled a list of the most sought-after specialisations for doctors in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. We also manage open applications for doctors with active work licences in addition to applications for active competitions in these countries.
