All in all, the labour market situation for graduates in Germany is very good. Although the chances of finding a job and getting a visa vary considerably, depending on your degree subject.
German hospitals are suffering from a shortage of doctors. And in rural areas, there are often no young doctors to take over the surgeries. Large numbers of doctors will be retiring in the years to come, so the demand for physicians from abroad will continue to increase.
