Medical Doctors from abroad have to clear an exam required as per

Work in a Hospital as Assistant Doctor for 6 years and then can appear for the Facharzt

Exam.


In general when a medical student in Germany wants to get a DR. Med title, he/she needs to do a Ph.D. This Ph.D unlike regular can be done along with their Medical studies. At the end the student must submit a thesis & an extra exam (Successfully defend his/her Ph.D) then can get a Dr. Med title.

Incase of foreign medical graduates, the candidate needs to apply for a Ph.D position to a medical university and do his/her phd. Depending upon the field (clinical or non-clinical) a lisencing is required to do Ph.D

No, you need not. ICPF Med-participants will learn the German language from the beginning in Schwerin, Germany.

Do I need to prove my English Proficiency even though I studied completely in English?

Yes. English proficiency test results needs to be provided (IELTS, PTE, Cambridge Test, Toefl etc.). This is to prove that the student is able to communicate in one foreign language without a problem. If the student also has proficiency in German (B1 level) & could speak and understand, the english results are not necessary anymore.
