A live interactive Facebook event about the medical specialization in Germany (Facebook-Live: Eine Veranstaltung über die Facharztausbildung in Deutschland)

  We, Tejas Ghetia and Jameel Hijazeen, are relatively new in Germany and doing our medical residencies here. Maybe you know us from our blogs and YouTube channels, where we publish materials related to medical specialisation in Germany (short bios and URLs at the end of this post). We both received hundreds of thousands of views of our materials and received many questions from hundreds of international medical doctors. Because …

Arab Christians in the Time of ISIS

I came today upon the article below. Christians from Arab countries are fleeing and those remaining, are sometimes discriminated against and of course at other times killed. Israel presents itself, among other things, as a country, where all citizens have equal rights. I hope that others would learn the importance of being open-minded and accepting minorities!!! In a perfect situation, accepting minorities and respecting them is not a favor, gift, or …

Jameel Hijazeen und Kleidung von der Pharmaindustrie

Dieses Bild war auf einem Kongress (Kongress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie, Psychosomatik und Nervenheilkunde). Eine Pharmafirma hat so eine große Kamera und einen Drucker gestellt, wo die Teilnehmer an dem Kongress (dieses Jahr knapp 9.000) kostenlos so witzige Fotos machen können. Die Haare und die Brille (die ich im Bild trage) sowie andere Kleidungsstücke gab es dabei. Wie oben sah ich aus. Der Titel des Postes habe …

If you are to read one book for the Fachsprachenprüfung… Then probably this one.

In the following PDF book/document is a great summary of the necessary material for the Fachsprachenprüfung (German medical language test)! It is really amazing! It contains almost all the necessary information! If I were to do the exam again, then I would probably not need a lot more than to read this PDF book/document. Of course, the more you learn, the better, but this summary really contains everything. It is prepared by …

Was bedeutet der Titel “Ich pfeife auf den Tod” von dem Buch bei Babak Rafati

“Der Titel ‘Ich pfeife auf den Tod’ soll eigentlich zum Ausdruck bringen, scheiße auf all was da passiert, sondern das Leben ist mir so viel Wert, dass alles kein Wert hat, um sich darüber Gedanken zum machen und vor allen Ding kaputt zu machen!” Quelle: Babak Rafati selbst über sein Buch in dem folgenden Video, Zeit 00:08-00:26, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrqrWuM6GZ0 Ich besuche morgen eine Lesung von diesem Autor! Ich bin sehr begeistert!

I am no longer the administrator of “Doctors Going to Germany”

Dear colleagues, Due to long-term and time-consuming goals in life, I gave up the administration of the group “Doctors Going to Germany” today. I expect that the group will contain about 4.000 members in the next one to two weeks. I gave the administration to a Mr. Teddy Kabel. He is a German man who helped me, and I am sure he helped hundreds of other foreign doctors who are aiming for a medical …

Two Great Blogs by Two Foreign Doctors about the Medical Specialisation in Germany

Today and about three weeks ago, I knew that I am not the only foreign doctor that blogs in English about the medical specialization in Germany. I found two great blogs by two Indian doctors who are aiming at a medical specialization in Germany. I totally recommend them. Their web addresses are as follows. 1) www.DrInGermany.blogspot.de: The author writes the following title for his blog and I think that it is self-explainatory, “Journey …

English Book Club (Dortmund, Bochum and surroundings)

I searched and asked a lot and then much surprised that I had not found an English book club in or around Dortmund. Even in whole North Rhein-Westphalia, I only found one in Düsseldorf! I kept asking people until one told me, “You did not find one! Then establish one!”. So, here I am trying it! Are there any people interested? We can meet in Dortmund or Bochum? What do …
