The Licensing Regulations for Physicians in Germany have long been outdated. Although a ministerial draft bill for the redesign of teaching and examinations in medical studies has been available since November 2020, it is still uncertain whether the reform, which has been in preparation for a long time, will be adopted in the near future. This SPOTLIGHT Healthcare provides an overview of the genesis of the reform and presents the examination formats developed in our project with the Institute for medical and pharmaceutical examination questions (Institut für Medizinische und Pharmazeutische Prüfungsfragen, IMPP).
