The next phase, the habilitation would be different than in the US if it 
is still in use in Germany.

Some acquaintances of ours discussed differences between MD programs 
between the US and UK and Ireland.  Not that the final degree/skills or 
capabilities are any different, though the pathways sound rather 
different (more hurdles in the US from what they told me, now as med 
school profs in Ann Arbor).
