Advanced Training and Research Periods for International Graduates
Information on research and advanced training at the University Hospital in Magdeburg
Depending on the department, it is possible to spend research periods at our university hospital.
A university degree or certificates are not awarded for this.
Unfortunately, we can usually not offer you a financial compensation for expenses or a paid position.
Depending on the department, it is also possible in our university hospital to complete observerships of up to one month. Observership ("Hospitation") means that you are only a passive observer and are not allowed to deal directly with patients. Unfortunately, no financial compensation is offered and you must organize your own accommodation.
If you are interested in an observership in our clinics, please contact Ms. Schulz for further information: .
If you wish to complete practical training course with us during which you actively deal with patients, the same procedure applies to you as for specialist training.
This means that you must apply for a permit to temporarily practice medicine ("Erlaubnis zur vorübergehenden Ausübung des ärztlichen Berufes").
If you get a paid position in one of our clinics, you will need to apply for a work permit.
Depending on the length of your stay, you may also need to apply for a residence permit.
Please check our website Facharztausbildung for further information.
