In January 2015, the New Revised Medical Curriculum program received its accreditation for a duration of three years. This followed an external review, which also included an inspection of our facilities, and a review of our financial and staffing resources. The reviewers also focused their attention on the concept and structure of the program, our decision-making, admissions and examination processes, and scrutinized students' opinions on course and conditions, the demographics of students, and the quality of student support. The accreditation is unconditional and valid until 27th January 2018.

Review: The Traditional Medical and Revised Mecial Curriculum

Medical students who started their first year of medicine at Charité in the fall of 2010/11 were enrolled on the New Revised Medical Curriculum program. Prior to the winter semester 2010/11, medical students had the option of enrolling on either the Traditional Medical Curriculum or the Revised Medical Curriculum.
However, the Traditional degree program is still available at many of the other medical schools in Germany. Throughout Germany, the program is strictly regulated by the Licensing Regulations for Physicians, ensuring consistency in the content and teaching of pre-clinical and clinical medicine, and the  examinations (Staatsexamen) taken at the end of each of these sections of the course.
