Indian Doctors (MBBS/MD/MS) in Germany

Germany has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. The use of the very latest therapies and medical equipment helps guarantee an exceptionally high level of care. Increasing digitization is opening up new possibilities for medical care, as X-ray images and medical reports are available faster. And digitization is set to grow even faster, lowering costs and bringing continual improvements in healthcare.

A dense network of clinics and doctors’ surgeries ensures that patients get the medical services they need rapidly. At the same time, physicians are held in great esteem by the German population. In surveys, the medical profession is consistently one of the most highly regarded in Germany.

German hospitals have had to contend with a shortage of doctors for quite a number of years now. There is a need throughout Germany for several thousand additional doctors. This demand will continue to rise in the coming years, particularly as many hospital doctors are soon due to enter retirement.
