Translated Article: Uniform Language Tests for Foreign Physicians [in Germany are decided upon]

• Source of this article: “Einheitliche Sprachtests für ausländische Ärzte”, http://www.handelsblatt.com/technologie/das-technologie-update/healthcare/arzt-patienten-kommunikation-einheitliche-sprachtests-fuer-auslaendische-aerzte/10118790.html.

• Probably, these language tests will begin sometime in 2015. In my opinion, these tests will bring justice because there will be uniform tests, of an equal hardness (or easiness?) level, throughout Germany. This will end the current different tests that differ not only on the level of each German state, but also as I easily noticed, on the level of German cities and districts. In addition, if these tests will be with marks, not only pass/fail tests, then they will be of benefit to good doctors who worked hard on their German language.
