Apotheker:innen für die
On the way to licensure, we offer you opportunities to qualify and prepare yourself best for the pharmaceutical knowledge examination.
Apotheker:innen für die Zukunft
In line with the Regional Chamber of Pharmacists in Rhineland-Palatinate and MIP have jointly conceptualized the project “Apotheker:innen für die Zukunft” to enable pharmacists who have not graduated in Germany to pursue their profession here in the future. It is the first qualification of its kind in Germany.
Pharmacists who would like to practice their profession in Germany require a state recognition. In Rhineland-Palatinate, a successfully absolved language and pharmaceutical examination conducted in Mainz by the Regional Chamber of Pharmacists in Rhineland Palatinate are required. Pharmacists who would like to practice their profession in Germany require a state recognition. In Rhineland-Palatinate, a successfully absolved language and pharmaceutical examination conducted in Mainz by the Regional Chamber of Pharmacists in Rhineland Palatinate are required.
Experience in recent years has shown that these hurdles cause many candidates to fail without targeted preparation. The underlying premise of the program is to integrate linguistic and technical learning and anchor it through practical work. Within a blended learning, the participants take part in a weekly online course led by a licensed pharmacist and also attend block seminars (so-called specialist weekdays) in the presence phase. At the same time, all participants should, if possible, work in a pharmacy in Rhineland-Palatinate. Our aim is to prepare you as effectively as possible for the knowledge examination. This should enable you to work as a licensed pharmacist, which will also benefit the healthcare system in Rhineland-Palatinate. The course is certified by the Regional Chamber of Pharmacists in Rhineland Palatinate and is accredited with continuing education points.
Since the start of the project in January 2017, more than 156 international pharmacists have completed the preparatory course for the pharmaceutical knowledge test. Many of them are already licenced and are now working in their profession in pharmacies in Rhineland-Palatinate.

National Integration Prize
The project “Apotheker:innen für die Zukunft” (“Pharmacists for the Future”), implemented by the State Chamber of Pharmacists of Rhineland-Palatinate and MIP – Medici in Posterum in the IQ Network Rhineland-Palatinate, received the National Integration Award from the Federal Chancellor in November 2019. The jury chose the project, which prepares international pharmacists for the knowledge test, because it is an “outstanding example of successful integration.” The six-month qualification is based on three pillars: 1. Integrated professional and language instruction, 2. Work in pharmacies, and 3. Individual support from a tutor. This prepares participants specifically for the exam required to obtain the German license to practice.
