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.
Structure of the FSP:
- Medical history interview (20 minutes)
In the first part of the examination, 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. You also have to explain the further examination steps and methods to the patient. During this part of the examination you should also take notes which will help you with the further tasks.
- Documentation (doctor’s letter) (20 minutes)
In the second part you are to summarise your notes from part 1 in the form of a short report. It is important to use medical terminology and not colloquial speech.
- Patient presentation (20 minutes)
In the third part, a conversation between you and a 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 other person’s questions fluently, clearly and with proper grammar.
To pass, you must achieve at least 60% in each part of the examination.
We comprehensively prepare you for the medical language exam Medicine C1 medical professions and the licence to practise medicine at the Bavarian Medical Association. In this German course you will practise specialist communication with patients and colleagues, e.g. anamnesis discussions and writing doctors’ letters. This course is suitable for you if you intend to work in Germany or are already doing so.
Our language teachers have both specialist medical knowledge and extensive experience in the field of German as a foreign language.

In Combination with
C1 evening course – here you can go through the whole C1 level (or just part of it), because although the official requirement for the exam is the B2 language level, the exam must be taken at the C1 language level. The chances of passing the FSP increase significantly with a successfully completed C1 course.
Conversation and pronunciation one-to-one – here you can work on your pronunciation and fluency in intensive individual training so that you can go into the exam with confidence and also be well prepared for future conversations in everyday medical life.
