Doctors Going to Germany
I am a General Physician and Blogger from Jordan. I graduated from Mutah University\Jordan in June 2013 with a Bachelor Degree in Medicine and Surgery (MBBS). Direclty after graduation, I knew about the chances for medical specialty in Germany and easily and quickly took the decision to continue my medical specialty in Germany. I learnt German in Jordan and after ten months passed the German B2 level exam (My experience here). I applied for visa and I will be hopefully traveling soon to Germany. I am aiming at finding a residency position in psychiatry.
I am an enthusiastic blogger since 2007 and my Blog has so far 385 published posts. On 8/11/2014, with the little German I knew back then, I translated and discussed an article related to medical specailty in Germany (Article: Dear foreign doctor, are you dreaming of a medical specialty in Germany?…). This post had a lot of comments and views and it soon became very famous. My blog’s statistics (the snapshot photo to the left) show that this post is now the fifth most commonly visited post in my blog. The apparent reason is that it ranks high in Google search results. For example, it ranks third in Google search for “medical specialty for Germany” (Link). More importantly, I think that the reason is the absence of English blogs, forums, or Facebook groups that are dedicated for “Doctors Going to Germany”. Can you make a comment about any you know of?
Based on the above, I started posting more information that could help foreign doctors deciding to travel to Germany. There is now a separate section in my Blog for that purpose titled “Doctors Going to Germany” (www.amanfrommoab.com/category/doctors-going-to-germany). I have published 46 posts in this section so far (I am particularly indebted to a Mr. Teddy Kabel whom I copy his posts and links from Facebook). My blog’s section has sub-sections and you can explore them from the blog’s menus (See the snapshot below). Alternatively, you can click directly on the section’s name (Doctors Going to Germany) and be able to explore all of the posts in this section. If you select an individual sub-section, then you could only read the articles in that sub-section alone.
Click on “Doctors Going to Germany” (inside of the red oval form) to read all posts in my Blog that are related to medical specialty and Master/PhD for foreign doctors in Germany. Alternatively, check on any of the sub-menu items to read posts in each of these subsections alone.
Moreover, I had a facebook group called “Doctors Learning German Together” (www.facebook.com/groups/DoctorsLearningGermanTogether*). Seeing the number of visits and comments in my blog, and realizing the scarcity of English information on the internet, then I changed the name and aims of this group to make it for and by “Doctors Going to Germany“. What is this group exactly about? This is explained in the four group terms:
1. This group is only for medical specialty and/or Master and PhD for medical doctors in Germany.
2. Languages of Posts and Comments are English or German: The members of this group are from all over the world. When the discussions are in English or German, then the greatest majority of members can benefit and/or take part in them. Moreover, when the members know that each new post in this group is in English or German, then they would probably visit the group again and again. *** Therefore, any post not in English or German will be deleted. It is hoped that your comments are also too in English or German ***
3. No posts about learning the German language: There are hundreds of groups and pages for teaching the German language. You can join any of them. We do not want to steal precious time from the members. Exceptions are materials related to the medical German language (mainly, books, audiobooks, websites, etc.)
4. No jokes, quotes, funny/interesting photos or videos: All will be deleted and with repeated violations, the member will be removed from the group.
5. If you have a question or a comment, please do not send private messages to group members: Try your best to publish a new post or make a comment. You can tag whoever you think could answer your question. When the discussions are public, then you will certainly benefit others and more than one person can possibly answer your question.
Finally, I really do not have enough time to answer individual messages that will benefit only one person. So please do not send me a private message. Ask in the group or post your questions as comments in this blog. Only in such ways can many people join the discussion!
Help others and get helped!
*The URL of the Facebook group ends with “DoctorsLearningGermanTogether”. This was the name of the group as it was established. However, because the aims of the group changed, I changed the group’s name as it was no longer well representative. Unfortunately, Facebook does not allow changing the URL of a group once it is chosen. Therefore, we are forced to stick with this URL.
