Recently, the UK authorities placed Nigeria on its red list of countries that should not be targeted for recruitment by health and social care employers.

Germany provides a desirable working atmosphere for all medical staff, especially physicians.

Medical doctors are highly paid in this country, a general physician may earn about 7000 EUR on average per month, while it may exceed 10000 EUR depending on the working time or the working place like clinics or hospitals.

Specialist doctors earn much more naturally. Their salary is around 16000 EUR per month, while surgeons earn more than other specialists.

It is a small country in Western Europe, its population is around 632000.
