Intensive language courses for medical students

ChIC offers a range of language courses in German and various foreign languages. These are targeted at medical students with a basic level of proficiency. Courses are taught ‘in tandem’ (wherever possible, with one German-speaking tutor and one who is native in the foreign language), using concrete situations and settings.

  • Topics are based on concrete situations from everyday clinical practice
  • Medical vocabulary
  • Medical history-taking
  • Clinical examinations and
  • case presentations using simulated patients.

Courses must have a minimum of 8 but no more than 12 participants and run for 16 hours (2x2 days either on weekends and/or on Thursdays and Saturdays). Participants must have a basic level of proficiency that allows them to navigate everyday situations (the ability to hold simple conversations and a solid grounding in basic grammar). This rule does not apply to our Arabic and Turkish language courses, which are aimed at students without any prior knowledge – the reason being that any student at Charité is likely to benefit from a basic level of proficiency in these languages in their clinical working lives

  • for all classes, except arabic : €70.00 for 2 weekends (for students)/€85.00 (for non students)
