    A new report published in Welt Newspaper approved that healthcare system in Germany is still in need for 2.600 general practitioners in 2013 in comparison with 2.000 in 2012.

    In addition to the lack of GPs , Germany needs about 2.000 specialists in addition to 1.250 psychiatrists.

    “The numbers show how urgently we need doctors for primary care,” said KBV spokesman Roland Stahl.

    In Germany there are around 52,000 general practitioners' clinics and 66,400 specialist clinics – 22,000 of which are psychiatric. Most of these are concentrated in towns and cities, meaning the countryside is lacking in services.

    Many doctors are retiring every year while new doctors are not enough to take their place

    If there are no doctors, this often means that pharmacies and physiotherapists also shut, according to the KBV. It said that by 2021, 51,000 general practitioners and specialists will have retired.

    Stahl added that the KBV was trying to lure younger doctors into the countryside with financial incentives.

    If we searched about the cause of the this problem , we will realize that low salaries for doctors in Germany can be the main cause of it.

    This is a chart showing the minimum and maximum salaries for doctors in Europe , you may notice that although Germany needs doctors but their salaries are not fair enough , this is why many doctors migrate from Germany to Sweden and United Kingdom for financial causes.

    DON'T UNDERESTIMATE CUBANS MY DEAR COMRADE-CUBA HAS THE BEST HEALTH SYSTEM IN THE WORLD,BETTER THAN THE UNITED STATES.

    HEALTH SYSTEM IN CUBA
    Life expectancy among Cubans is 80.02 years for women and 76 years for men. Before 1959, life expectancy was less tan 55 years and today, it equals that of developed countries.
    Child mortality is 4.7 per 1000 born live and mortality among children under 5 years old is 6.2 per 1000 born live. This is the result of a policy that cares for the human being, implemented since the very beginning of the revolutionary triumph, which not only includes large budgets for such purposes, but also the training of doctors and paramedic personnel, the construction of hospitals in the most remote areas of the territory, and the high priority given to health in Cuba.
    The number of facilities of the Ministry of Health providing services to the population (according to 2008 data) is as follows: 219 hospital centres, 160 dental clinics, 335 mother craft centres, 156 home for the elderly, 229 grandparent homes, 35 home for the physically disabled, 13 research centres, and 26 blood banks. Among hospital centres, there are 82 general hospitals, 36 clinical-surgical hospitals, 26 paediatric hospitals, 26 child hospitals, and 17 rural hospitals, while 35 hospitals provide specialized services in oncology, orthopaedics, psychiatry, ophthalmology, rehabilitation and against leprosy and tuberculosis.
    The State’s priority to health services for the people is shown not only by the number of hospital centres throughout the country but also by the equipment bought for such hospitals.
    An ambitious hospital redesigning and extension program is being implemented, with state of the art equipment (ultra-sound technique, computerized axial tomography, and magnetic resonance equipment) for accurate diagnosis. Policlinics have also undergone a capital restoration and new specialized services have been added. Intensive Care Units at municipality level have also increased.
    Professional training, since the triumph of the Revolution, has also been qualitatively superior, combining theory and practice since the first year of the degree. Curricula have been designed, taking into account the experiences of the best centers in the field of most advanced countries. There are four Higher Institute of Medical Sciences, 21 School of Medicine, four Dental Schools, four Nursing Schools, and four Health Technology Schools, in addition to 169 university extension services at the municipal level nation wide.
    Cuba has 1 nurse and 1 nursing auxiliary per 119 inhabitants (107.761 nurses in 2008), 1 doctor per 151 inhabitants (74.552 doctors in 2008). 1 dentist per 1000 inhabitants (11.234 dentists in 2008).
    Since the early years of the revolutionary process, special emphasis was given to protecting the population against most common transmissible diseases and today, the vaccination program covers 13 diseases, the highest figure ever reported by any country in the world.
    With this massive and free of charge vaccine program for its citizens, Cuba, with the enormous effort it entails, makes possible one of the basic human rights: health
    Many specialized services are also provided to foreigners, and there is medical cooperation and collaboration with countries in three continents.
    Infectious diseases eradicated
    Polio (1962)
    Malaria (1967)
    Neonatal tetanus (1972)

    You don't need any exam for Germany.But your MD should be from WHO list.All you need is B2 level of German language (a must) and 2 years of experience (not necessary but preferable).Some states may require exam.But you have to be in Germany in order to apply for the registration.

    It doesn't matter MD or MBBS as long as your med school is in WHO list. You need to have your 2 years experience with you (house job)specialization .Whatever you could show them.They won't even look at your documents if you don't have B2 level.What is your nationality and where did you graduate from?I can guide you through the process.E-mail me on drwaqas.mubarik @gmail.com
