    Chances are decent, assuming you are of good character, learn the language well, work hard, and do not behave boorishly for 8 years. However, naturalization as a German citizen requires one to relinquish his or her prior citizenship (i.e. dual citizenship is not allowed for naturalized persons), so be aware of that.

    Hundreds, but they are not free of charge. Google is your friend.

    Dermatology is very, very competitive, even among German medical graduates. It is definitely not among the more likely landing spots for a foreign medical graduate.

    German at the B2 level is the bare minimum. Some places will require C1, as well as clinical language skills tests. It rather depends on the region and the hospital.

    Your medical diploma will need to be accepted by the German government, and that will usually be managed through a recruiting agency for a hospital. You also will need to have a clean record and a citizenship that does not make waves with the immigration authorities. I would recommend asking your questions to a good German medical recruiter. There are plenty of them around, and they will have the most up to date information.

    Pay varies, estimated 35-40k Euros/year or so. Vacation is, if I am hearing correctly from my German colleagues, 6 weeks per year.

    thanks a lot devildoc for a precise & helpful reply.
    Is it favourable for an indian to get into residency at Germany? I've heard that due to shortage of doctors they've changed their system for favouring immigration of doctors. Is it so?
    Actually I am in talks with a consultancy which does the work of getting into residency in Germany.
    I am keenly interested in dermatology. But as u said its a tougher-to-get branch.

    So what about anaesthesiology?
    Can you please tell about the working conditions? I mean the night shifts and all.

    sorry for asking these many questions.

    can anyone please tell about residency in ophthalmology?
    duration? work hours?

    It would also be very helpful if someone can update about the nature of equivalency test, non-eu diploma holders need to pass to get their diploma recognised.

    Good to see thread on discussion of German medicine. I read a lot of about Germany's strong economy and people flocking there for jobs from all over Europe. Of course for many of us language is a barrier.

    Essentially, if you can get interviews and can speak German fluently, you will probably stand a chance. They are hiring foreign medical grads in Germany, and while EU citizens will be preferred in most instances, there are still other foreigners who are hired. If you are willing to look at hospitals in the eastern side of the country, you may also have more success.

    Like Dermatology, Ophthalmology is highly competitive and not a likely landing spot for most foreign graduates. Presently, Anesthesiology is much more open as a specialty.

    The numbers of night shifts required for any specialty will depend on the hospital(s) where you work, there is no set amount.

    Duration of training varies by specialty, I would urge a Google search in that regard. For example, I work in Switzerland and these types of specifics are listed on the FMH website... I am sure that there is a German equivalent someplace.
