German for doctors and medical staff

telc German B2/C1 Medicine – subject-specific training for doctors and health care professionals

Take our preparatory course for 3 or 6 months

‘Appendizitis’ or ‘Blinddarmentzündung’? As a foreign doctor or health care professional you have to face numerous linguistic challenges every single day. For example, taking the right tone in different situations. The medical environment entails a whole variety of communication requirements. A general language examination cannot really meet these as a result. That is why a subject-specific German test was developed especially for foreign doctors and health care professionals: telc German B2/C1 Medicine!

This examination is tailored exactly to the linguistic context in hospitals and health care facilities. At the same time, the focus is on typical communication situations from everyday medical life and is therefore far more meaningful than a general language examination. You do not have to reel off any grammar or vocabulary but can show that you can apply them correctly and appropriately in your everyday working environment. Attend our preparation course over three or six months and go into the examination relaxed and well prepared.

Course contents and learning goals

The course prepares the participants for typical communication situations in the medical profession. The focus of the course is on oral expression and listening comprehension as well as reading comprehension and writing skills. The learning goal is:

  • To effortlessly understand what the participant hears or reads in the practice of the medical profession
  • To pick up and summarize information that the participant receives as a doctor in hospital in order to process it in a task- and goal-oriented manner (doctor's letter, anamnesis interview, anamnesis protocol, patient presentation, etc.)
  • To be able to express oneself spontaneously and fluently, both in conversations with relatives and with other doctors, and to be able to make finer nuances of meaning clear even in more complex specialist topics
