Professional development regulations (sample) and guidelines (sample)
In Germany all matters relating to the professional development of doctors fall under the responsibility of the State Medical Associations as public bodies. The (sample) professional development regulations compiled by the National Medical Association are merely recommendatory in character.
For each individual doctor, the sole legally binding professional development regulations are those of the State Medical Association of which he or she is a member. The same applies to the (sample) guidelines, (sample) course books and (sample) logbooks. (Source: Bundesärztekammer (National Medical Association), http://www.baek.de))
