Medical subject teaching in preparation for the knowledge examination (KP) in Heidelberg

You want to work as a doctor in Germany and you are in the recognition process? Alpha Aktiv Heidelberg prepares doctors not only for the professional language examination (FSP) but also for the knowledge examination (KP).

Apart from preparing for the KP, we are also happy to assist with finding accommodation or with bureaucratic matters.

Our Preparatory course for KP 

Our course "Preparation for the Knowledge Examination" is aimed at foreign doctors and dentists from third countries who would like to work professionally here in Germany and already have a good level of German (at least B2).

The content of this course is to repeat medical knowledge in German that is relevant for the KP. We will focus on the fields of surgery and internal medicine. Furthermore, topics such as emergency medicine, imaging procedures, radiation protection, vaccination, legal issues as well as reporting and confidentiality are covered.
With the help of specialist literature, exam protocols, digital learning opportunities and exam simulations, experienced specialists prepare you for the exam in the best possible way.

Our courses take place on a hybrid basis, which means that you can attend the course at our premises in Heidelberg or join online. The course lasts a total of 12 weeks and includes 360 45-minute lessons.

We recommend attending the course after successful completion of the FSP, but the prerequisite is only a B2 certificate and the completion of a German course for medical professionals or FSP course.

If you have not yet reached B2 level or have not yet attended an FSP preparation course, you are also welcome to book a course with us in advance. You can find more information about our language courses here.
