Statistics: Syrians make up the largest group of foreign doctors in Germany

“The medical profession in Germany is becoming more colourful”: There are currently more than 57,000 foreign doctors working in Germany. This is the result of the current statistics of the German Medical Association. This means that out of 548,302 doctors in Germany, more than 10 percent come from abroad. For the third year in a row, Syrian doctors took first place in the number of foreign doctors in Germany. In 2021, the number of Syrian doctors reached 5404. In 2020, it was 5242. 4,314 of them work in German hospitals. Doctors from Romania took second place (4,721), followed by doctors from Greece (2,973), Austria (2,901) and Russia (2,631). The Ärzteblatt considers the increased number of foreign doctors in the health system “a good development”. In view of the current shortage of doctors, many clinics would have “even greater difficulties filling vacancies without colleagues from abroad”.
