To address the current shortage of physicians in Germany, hospital administrations increasingly recruit physicians from abroad. Their formal qualifications are easily recognized and they are free to migrate to the country. However, do these measures suffice to ensure a smooth transfer of professional knowledge and skills? Juliane Klein investigates migrants' actual integration into the work environment in the case of Central and Eastern European migrant physicians in German hospitals and attempts to understand the relationship between formal and informal aspects of integration and recognition.
