Compact Course Preparation Medical Language Test
This course prepares foreign physicians for the Medical Language Test C1 to obtain the German medical license (Approbation).
In classroom instruction, the relevant structures as well as the peculiarities of the professional competences in the area of communication and interaction are explained (for example, taking history, case presentation, patient consent, patient consultation, documentation). The medical language skills are taught with regard to the professional competencies and are practically trained using simulated patients.
The following textbooks are included in the course fees:
- Kommunikation und Interaktion für ausländische Ärzte
- FIA skript
Instructors of the course are qualified teachers with appropriate degree and pedagogical aptitude.
As simulated patients, persons are employed who can appropriately present clinical cases, their symptoms and patient behavior in the context of the courses in a realistic manner.
- Degree in medicine
- Recognized language certificate B2 (FIA, Telc, Goethe or ÖSD – confirmation of participation is not sufficient)
If you do not have a recognised language certificate, you can participate in a free placement test. The test is held online.
After completing the course, the professional language test C1 should be taken at the responsible licensing authority.
In the federal states of Hesse and Saarland, the Patient Communication Test (PKT) Medical Terminology C1 of the FIA is currently recognized as a professional language test. It is up to the participants to take it off as an alternative. Here you can register for the PKT professional language medicine C1.
