  1. Application to the district government: Before you can work independently as an MTRA in Germany, your qualification has to be recognised by the district government. For this, the authorities require all documents on your qualification. After reviewing all your documents, the district government will issue their recognition notification with an overview of the exact number of theoretical and practical units you have to catch up on.
  2. Application to Med 360°: As soon as you receive your notice from the district government, you are ready to apply to our program. We're looking forward to your application! We've prepared a checklist with all the documents we need you to include in your application (see above).
  3. Theory and practice at Med 360°: Make a new start at Med 360°! After all the paperwork, we can employ you as an MTRA pending recognition.  You will then complete the missing theoretical and practical units with us. If your language skills are not yet sufficient, we will support you with a language course. We can also help you find accommodation. Depending on how much you have to repeat, the recognition phase can take about six to twelve months.
  4. Unlimited permanent position at Med 360°: Congratulations on your registration! After you have successfully completed the recognition procedure, you are in line for an unlimited term, permanent position as an MTRA at Med 360°.
