by Doctors – for Doctors

Our Philosophy

We want to establish a strong community for peer-to-peer consultation (from doctor-doctor (or student)) to help doctors from various countries apply for the licence to practice medicine in Germany. We provide our services in a fair, transparent and honest way.

We want to be the colleagues that you can count on!

Our Mission

Consult, support and coach physicians from abroad who want to live and work in Germany. Make a meaningful contribution towards German society and have a positive impact on the development of the German healthcare system. Support initiatives towards free movement of doctors and enable doctors to live and work in their country of choice.

Work as a Doctor in Germany

Berufserlaubnis

We will help you to prepare your documents to apply for the temporary licence to practice (Berufserlaubnis) should you wish to do that. The Berufserlaubnis can have several benefits but also some limitations that we will discuss in detail with you.

Approbation

We will help you with your application for the licence to practice medicine in Germany (Approbation) and assist you in collecting all the necessary documents that you need in order to make this process a successful one.

Job Application

We will help you prepare a good job application and send the documents to various hospitals. We will be your permanent German postal address hub to send and receive mails in Germany, speeding up the process for you and saving you months of delay.

OUR VISION

An open society with free movement of doctors and healthcare professionals. A strong healthcare system that benefits the many, not the few.

Your Team 

Dr Safa Cansi

Co-founder

Safa is a junior doctor resident in paediatric orthopaedic surgery in Germany. He went through the tedious process of applying for the German approbation and learned all the tricks and downfalls of the process the hard way. He was the Vice-President of Internal Affairs of the European Medical Students’ Association and in charge of all projects and organising the congresses and general assemblies. Safa is an accredited soft skill trainer, an experienced coach and loves travelling, delivering trainings and good food.

Jannis Papazoglou

Co-founder

Jannis used to study business law and is now in his final steps of medical school. He will get the approbation this year in early summer. He was one of the most active medical students in healthcare policy of his generation and the President of the European Medical Students’ Association for two years. He is interested in health policy and spends his free time reading books and sailing.

The idea of winning a doctor’s degree gradually assumed the aspect of a great moral struggle, and the moral fight possessed immense attraction for me.
