Welcome to our Medical Faculty!

Based in the exciting German capital Berlin and boasting a university history deep in tradition, the Charité certainly has a lot to offer. And yet perhaps the most popular reason why students choose to study at our faculty is our open-minded attitude towards learning in which the students themselves play a crucial role in defining and shaping the future of medical training.

At the Charité we can proudly look back on a rich undefined300 year history. Indeed the Charité can claim an array of nobel prize winners, medical researchers and teachers who have played a decisive role past and present in shaping the excellent medical training available for young students today. Furthermore in 1999 the Charité gave birth to Germany's first reformed medical curriculum. Today the Charité has more than 7000 enrolled students studying on under graduate and post graduate programmes (see the undefinedCharité Graduate College) making the Charité one of the biggest university hospitals in Europe.

 

Learning for Tomorrow's Medicine

This is the central motto of our faculty's deep rooted commitment to medical education. As a training school for future doctors the Charité carries an important social responsibility. One of the most important tasks of our faculty is the consistent and tenacious improvement of the quality of medical training and the promotion of scientific talents. We place special emphasis on the role of up-and-coming female prodigies and career opportunities for women. Indeed half of our junior professorship positions are occupied by women.
Those studying at the Charité also profit from our links with cutting-edge research projects from day one. The Charité is not only one of the largest medical faculties in Europe it is also one of the most advanced and recognized faculties in terms of research quality.

 

In the winter semester 2010/2011 the new Model Medicine Curriculum starts. This curriculum is the result of our continual attempts to improve medical training. Our Model Medicine Curriculum is based on a research and practice orientated structure with emphasis on on-ward training and patient contact, an approach that is deeply anchored in our medical school motto.  

The Associate Dean's Office, The Student Affairs Office and the Dieter Scheffner Center for Medical Teaching and Educational Research are the faculty institutions responsible for the organization of courses, quality assurance and qualification regulations.

Charité Students Shape Faculty Life and Learning

Characteristic for the Charité is our deep-set open-mindedness towards students and the innovative role they play at our faculty.

Student involvement and participation are not just part of daily life at the Charité, they are actively encouraged. Indeed we are only too happy to channel the enthusiasm and creativity of Charité students which continue to shape teaching and enrich the development of our medical faculty.

Internationality and Interculturality are Hallmarks of Academic Life at the Charité
