I.4 Jobs in hospitals

A real challenge for the best of you – work in a hospital.

If you have a very good command of the German language and extensive experience in the field of IMC, intensive care and/or anaesthesia, we would be happy to provide you with a job opportunity in the corresponding wards in hospitals here in Stuttgart. During a job shadowing in a ward, you and your supervisor will be able to assess whether you are suitable for the job. Working in a clinic ward is a better paid job, which,  however, poses a real challenge. Few employees stood up to it.
