Study plan for the knowledge test (Kenntnisprüfung)
and medical German

AMBOSS supports foreign-trained physicians coming to Germany

The AMBOSS platform not only provides well-founded answers to questions of everyday medical practice, but also supports more and more foreign-trained physicians on their way to obtaining a medical license (Approbation) in Germany.

For the recognition of medical qualifications acquired abroad, an equivalence and/or knowledge test must be passed. Sufficient knowledge of the German language is also a requirement. With AMBOSS, medical terms can be learned and repeated - as well as current treatment recommendations according to German guidelines.

For participants in the oral-practical knowledge examination (Kenntnisprüfung), we also provide a study plan and offer the use of AMBOSS for one year at half price.

Study plan for the Kenntnisprüfung

This learning plan serves as a guideline to prepare you in a structured way for the oral-practical examination. It covers the main topics of the Kenntnisprüfung: the most common clinical scenarios in internal medicine and surgery as well as the most important medical concepts and clinical skills.

Important: Activate ”Klinik-Modus
(The “Arzt-Modus” (clinician mode) contains too much information for the kKenntnisprüfung. For more in-depth theory content or clinical work, the “Arzt-Modus” should be reactivated).

Day 1-10: Internal medicine

Day 11-15: Surgery

Day 16-20: Clinical skills
