Hospitation

What is Hospitation?

Hospitation wiki

 

” Hospitation is a praktikum(internship) for doctors. If i remember well, formally you are not allowed to do medical acts and you should only observe and do things under the direct supervision of a doctor. In practice, a lot depends on what the clinic and the people there are like. Some clinics are relaxed about that and if they see you have experience, they will let you exercise more initiative. Others won’t. On the first day you will be told what to expect. In any case, all that is unofficial, medical acts are performed by fully Approbiert doctors who also have the responsibility for them. Some patients feel uneasy when a student performs something on them.

Many hospitals provide free accommodation in a dormitory for the duration of the Hospitation.

Having done a Hospitation will distinguish you from other foreign applicants who haven’t. however German graduates spend the last year of their studies doing a structured praktisches jahr. so u wont be on par with them.”

    Hi,
    Thank you for your blog. Is it possible to get a hospitation with only a b1 level?

    • It is possible that get Hospitation with B1 too. But it will not be helpful to you. As you will not understand enough for improvements of language. And B1 is a lower level to learn medical terminology in German or to communicate with patients.

      Better to do it after B2. Even after B2 many people face problems!!

    Hello, your blog is very helpful, thanks
    One question, can we get hospitation on bases of provisional licence from india? It usually takes 4 to 6 months to get permanent licence and I don’t want to waste that much time.

    • it is possible, as far as I know; because Hospitations are given directly by Hospitals and you don’t require to complete your studies for that. But language is important to gain something from Hospitations.

    hi sir, can i apply for internship there in germany

    • I have to start by saying that, I do not have any official links or information .
      But I heard that at least last year, one friend completed internship with a temporary work permit for internship in Germany. You don’t receive an Approbation in Germany at completion of internship. You have to get the internship recognised from your nativ country or the country where you learned your medical education. You have to get it recognized in that country, then submit your medical registration of that country in Germany along with other documents for Berufserlaubnis application. Your documents will be verified and you will be issued Berufserlaubnis, and then you can initiate further Approbationsverfahren as per rules.

    • If you want to ask about Hospitation… not internship…. then please read post again, information link is available in post. Thanks

    is it legally allowed to apply for approbation in more than one state in Germany simultaneously?

    • Tejas Ghetia says:

      No it is not allowed. It can lead to rejection of your application, don’t do that.

      But you can transfer the same application another state after applying it in one state.
      Or you can take the approbation application back from firt state, and apply it in another state with a cover letter letter along with documents proving that you already took your first application back.
