With Charité abroad: broaden your horizons

Internationalization doesn´t only mean that we win students and colleagues from abroad for the Charité. It means also that, and we encourage you, dear colleagues, to go abroad.

Enrichment of competencies overseas

In research, international networks and experiences abroad are something that is standard. For teaching, health care and administration professionals, exchanges abroad are somewhat more limited. Precisely here that we would like to affirm to you and to encourage you to start your own experiences.

The purpose is to support you as employees of the Charité in your professional evolution. Furthermore, the goal is to enable better understanding and exchanges with foreign colleagues, students and patients. Your specialized, intercultural and language skills make us diverse and allows us to live to the challenges of a globally connected world.
