5 reasons to specialize in Germany or Austria
03. February 2021.
In the abundance of attractive offers for doctors without specialization in Germany, it is good to remind and point out the advantages that specialization brings in Germany or Austria. With a language certificate and a medical license in an EU member state, doctors who want to move to these countries can start the process of obtaining a medical license which you can find more about here.
1. you do not sign contracts with the hospital to stay after specialization
One of the biggest objections of young doctors in Croatia lies in the fact that while contracting a specialization, you have to sign a contract to stay in the country for the next few years after finishing the specialisation. This is not a problem for those doctors who do not want to work abroad, but if you are reading this post on our site, you are likely interested in the opportunities offered to doctors outside Croatia. However, if you see yourself in Croatia in the long run, you can also turn this advantage on your own by completing a residency in Germany or Austria and then getting a job as a specialist in Croatia without a contractual obligation.
2. greater mobility during the specialization
As the German-speaking area does not have contracts linking doctors to the hospital, trainees also have open doors of mobility between hospitals making it much easier to arrange a move from one city to another.
3. better standard of living
When it comes to living standards, Austria and Germany are always among the leaders in Europe. Of course, this does not mean that absolutely everyone will like these two countries, but there is a much higher chance that you will reach your potential and that your family will have better conditions.
4. more opportunities for professional development and education
What makes Germany and Austria interesting countries for the younger adolescent population are constant investments in technology and education, which opens the doors to professional improvement. Hospitals support doctors who want to learn, and additional training is regularly provided through various educations, courses and similar programs.
5. international working experience and opening of personal and professional perspectives
Apart from the fact that a specialist degree from Austria or Germany brings a certain dose of seriousness, international work experience in CV also shows that in practice you are ready to take the necessary steps to grow in your professional area. Living in a new country is also a great opportunity to better prepare yourself for life’s obstacles.
