As Germany's largest city, Berlin has to meet the medical needs of about 3.5 million inhabitants. This also guarantees persistent demand for qualified personnel and therefore job availability.

The German Heart Institute has an outstanding reputation, even far beyond Europe. The quality of services provided by its medical staff is the European standard for cardiological treatments. This also attracts many medical tourists to the capital city. Currently, 17,000 to 21,000 people come to Berlin every year for outpatient and inpatient treatment, or just for wellness treatment.
