There is no need to point out the fact that there is a doctor shortage in Germany. This is a well-known fact that we have already covered in previous articles.
Through this article we want to highlight the fact that serious studies underline the fields of psychiatrics and psychosomatic as the specialties with the biggest doctor deficiencies in Germany.

Berlin â€“ Two-thirds of all psychiatric institutions have problems with the filling the vacant positions. Nationwide, six percent of all doctors in psychiatry are vacant. This is the result of the new so-called psychiatric barometer of the German Hospital Institute (DKI), a 2011 representative survey carried out in psychiatric and psychosomatic institutions in Germany. According to the study, psychiatry represents the specialty with the biggest shortage of doctors in Germany.
The psychiatric hospitals, according to the survey has and average median of 158 beds, while general hospitals hold an average of 105 beds. According to the data collected in 2010, psychiatric hospitals provided medical inpatient care for an average (median) of 1996 cases. General hospitals provided medical impatient care for an average of (median) 1364 patients.
â€œWith the introduction of the pro rata pay system, the psychiatric institutes must face new tasks and challengesâ€. The psychiatric barometer indicates the ascension to personnel and administrative burden. The majority of the institutions have created new jobs and functions, expanded internal documentation and staff training.
The results of the psychiatric Barometer 2011 are based on an exhaustive survey of the psychiatric hospitals and general hospitals with psychiatric or psychosomatic departments. 178 institutions have participated at this survey.
Soâ€¦ the German job market is waiting for you! What are you waiting for?
