Knowledge test

German: Kenntnisprüfung

A knowledge test is a compensation measure for individuals from third countries, who are completing the recognition procedure for regulated medical professions.

A knowledge test allows individuals in a regulated medical profession to compensate for substantial differences between a foreign professional qualification and a German reference occupation.

The competent authority conducts the knowledge test.
The knowledge test relates to the content of a German state final examination. All the content of such a final examination may be tested. However it is not essential that all content is examined.
