Medical and health sciences service - Recognize foreign professional qualifications as career qualification

Service Description

In Thuringia, employment in the civil service through the establishment of a civil service relationship is tied by law to the possession of certain professional qualifications. If you are a national of

  • of a member state of the European Union,

  • of another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area,

  • of another Contracting State to which the Federal Republic of Germany and the European Union have granted a legal right to recognition of professional qualifications by treaty,

you have acquired professional qualifications that enable you to work in the public service there, you must have these qualifications recognized in Thuringia (as a career qualification) in order to be able to be employed in Germany in a civil service position corresponding to your previous profession. To this end, the equivalence of your professional qualifications with a Thuringian career qualification must be established. If you wish to work as a public health officer in a public health office (in Thuringia), you must have a further training equivalent to that of a specialist in the field of public health or a qualification equivalent to a six-month public health officer course.
