Training courses in health care

Get your training in the health professions at the best hospital in Europe. Learn from leading medical professionals and participate in the medicine of tomorrow. At the Charité, you will encounter a wide range of courses of diseases and learn how to recognize and treat them using state-of-the-art technology. This is crucial for the health of patients while pushing your career!


Choose from ten skilled occupations

We offer ten different skilled occupations in health care. You will learn the theoretical part of most of the skilled occupations at the new Berlin Education Campus for Health Care Professions, which Charité and Vivantes launched together at the beginning of 2020. You will then experience the practice and thus also real everyday life at the ward on a rotation basis. As a maximum care hospital, this rotation between departments is particularly extensive and allows you to go through all areas of your profession and get to know them in detail.


State-of-the-art knowledge

Since the Charité is a university hospital, we place great importance on research. All treatments and therapies are based on the latest scientific findings, many of which are developed and tested directly at the Charité. For you this means: Not only will you gain the latest medical knowledge, you will also apply it directly.


Direct line to practical instructors

The new labor agreement for the health care professions also applies to you.* The contract not only improves working conditions, it also stipulates that there is a maximum of two trainees for every practical instructor. This also applies in a similar way to the other areas. There is always enough time to provide you with ideal support and training.


Interdisciplinary maximum care

At the Charité, all health care professionals and all specialty departments of the medical college work hand in hand to provide holistic care to patients. You are in the thick of it and get to know all fields! This will help you figure out which field suits you best and align your career accordingly.


Respected throughout Europe

An education at the Charité opens doors for you throughout Europe and the world. The Charité has an excellent reputation in the whole world, which opens up many professional opportunities. You can benefit for the rest of your life from the network you build at the Charité.

Training in administration and research

With over 20,000 Group employees, annual sales exceeding € 2.3 billion and an unmeasurable responsibility to more than 800,000 patients and over 9,000 students each year, there is no question: The Charité must be managed efficiently. And this is where you come in!

Responsibility and variety

Complete your apprenticeship at one of Berlin's largest employers and get to know a particularly diverse administration. At the Charité, high-tech medical equipment has to be purchased just like bandages and drugs, staff has to be supervised and treatments have to be billed to the health insurance companies, technology must work, and major projects like construction work cannot be allowed to come to a standstill. The rotation process allows you to participate in exciting projects in a wide variety of fields and to get to know the broad spectrum of administrative professions at the Charité.

Experience and help shape the digital change

It has never been more exciting to work at the Charité – because digitization is changing health care and its administration. Just as in cutting-edge medicine, the Charité also strives to be a pioneer in the digital transformation. During your training, you will learn to help shape transformation processes from the inside out.

Common good instead of profit

At the Charité, it's not about developing the next app, becoming a unicorn or making a grand exit. It is about developing the medicine of tomorrow (research), empowering people to help others (teaching), and providing the best possible care for people who are ill (healing). But this will work only on the basis of a well-organized administration. All your tasks have a meaningful background.

A career with a future

The Charité provides training to retain new colleagues for the long haul and offers the best opportunities for permanent employment. Should you decide to continue your career elsewhere, you can be sure that you will benefit from the excellent reputation of the Charité. If you stay at the Charité, we can offer you numerous exciting opportunities for further education and training.
