Professional license for health profession

Service Description

In order to practice as a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, psychological psychotherapist or child and adolescent psychotherapist in Germany, you need a separate professional license: the Approbation or the Berufserlaubnis. In contrast to the Approbation, a professional license is granted for a limited period of time and is restricted to work in a specific institution in the Free State of Thuringia.

Prerequisites:
The professional permit is linked to various prerequisites, which relate to a successful completion of studies in Germany or a completion of training abroad as defined by the respective professional law, citizenship and personal and health suitability for the practice of the profession.

Application abroad in a health profession:
If you wish to practice the profession of a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, psychological psychotherapist or child and adolescent psychotherapist abroad, a "certificate of good standing" is usually required. This certificate is also issued by the State Examination Office for Academic Health Professions at the Thuringian State Administration Office, provided that you last worked in your profession in the Free State of Thuringia.
