Charité – University of Medicine Berlin

Charité is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. All of our clinical care, research and teaching are delivered by physicians and researchers of the highest international standard. Charité proudly lays claim to more than half of all German Nobel Prize winners in Physiology or Medicine, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich. Charité is internationally renowned for its excellence in teaching and training.


Medical Neurosciences focuses on translational research. The main objective is to bridge the gap between successes at the bench and treatment at the bedside. We integrate basic laboratory research and the clinic in terms of faculty, students, course content and infrastructure. The program covers the breadth of neuroscience from molecular neurobiology to cognition and neurovascular diseases.

The program encourages students to develop their own, individual professional, offering a variety of elective lectures and lab rotation opportunities combined with the design of individual development plans. As a result, students have developed a variety of projects and activities, such as a students' run newsletter CNS, contribution to science slams, self-organized retreats, advisory groups for the development of the program and many others.
