This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Against the background of rising unemployment, Professor Jorg-Dietrich Hoppe, president of the German federal doctors' chamber (BAK) warned the government not to use the health service as a job-market experiment. Industry as a whole was discarding employees, but demand within the health service would continue to rise, he said. "We need stability and a basis for innovation," he added. Professor Hoppe pointed out that the health service employed some 4.2 million people. "The doctors' profession alone offers more positions that any other industry branch in Germany, offering up to one million places in its surgeries," he added.
