Information on the examination
The aim of the examination is to test whether written and professional language skills are mastered in order to cope with communication in the everyday life of doctors.
The exam consists of 3 major parts (medical history interview, doctor’s letter and patient presentation) and at the end the technical vocabulary is tested in a fourth part.
Structure of the FSP:
Medical history interview (20 minutes)
In the first part, the heart of the exam, a conversation between you (as a doctor) and a patient is simulated. Here you have to ask specific questions in order to find out the causes of the complaints. The anamnesis is therefore practiced in the course on all relevant specialties including: Cardiology, Pneumology, Hematology, Dermatology …
In addition, you must explain the further examination steps and methods to the patient. The explanations of the examinations will be discussed in class and presented in small presentations by the students. During the doctor-patient conversation, you should take notes that will help you with the further tasks.
Documentation (doctor’s letter) (20 minutes)
In the second part, you are to summarize your notes from Part 1 in the form of a short report. Here it is important to use medical terminology and not slang. The teacher will give helpful tips on special grammar as well as sentence structures used in doctor’s letters. You will improve your written language through a lot of writing exercises.
Patient presentation (20 minutes)
In the third part, a conversation between you and another doctor is simulated and you introduce the patient. You may also use the notes from part 1 here. You should be able to answer the examiner’s questions fluently, understandably and grammatically correctly.
Depending on the federal state and the examiner, technical vocabulary is tested in oral or written form at the end of the 3rd part. In our course we practice again and again in short sequences to translate these words correctly into German. e.g. Thyreoditis – thyroiditis
To pass, you must achieve at least 60% in each part of the examination.

The course is designed so that you prepare for a new subject area before each new lesson. On the following day of the course, you will then be given one or more cases related to that area. A good structure is important for preparation and confidence in the exam.
We generally work individually and address the needs of each student. This works best in individual training or in small groups, which is why we work in groups with a maximum of 5 participants.
In addition to free materials, we use a book in which you will find all the important information on parts 1 to 4 as well as many technical terms, example cases, examinations and a summary of the most important pathologies. The book is perfect for preparing and following up the lessons and costs approx. 40,-€.
This course is suitable for you if you intend to work in Germany or already do so.
Our language teachers have both specialist medical knowledge and extensive experience in the field of German as a foreign language.
