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!

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 …

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 …

How I passed it: ِAnamnesegespräch für die Fachsprachenprüfung!

# My aim from this video is to share my expereience and help foreign doctors in understanding better what is tested in the Fachsprachenprüfung. Sorry for the mistakes! “Life is too short to learn German!’ **** Language mistakes are tolerated. But it is a huge problem when you use Lateinisch with the patients. It is wrong therefore to ask the patient: “Haben Sie Diabetes/Hypertonie? Haben Sie Appendizektomie gehabt” — Correct …
