Frequently asked questions

Are work shadowing or an internship available at the Charité?

The Charité is pleased to facilitate internships and shadowing for applicants aged 14 and over. This will enable you to deepen your knowledge in specific fields and familiarize yourself with the tasks involved as well as getting to know potential future colleagues. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer paid internships at the moment. If you are interested in shadowing, please contact the relevant ward directly


What opportunities are there for advancement? 

The Charité will support your career and promote your further education. We are convinced that we can provide the best healthcare only if all Charité employees are able to grow and push their boundaries – whether in clinical routine care, as mentors, in their studies, in research or through teaching. You can find more information on further education and training opportunities on the page of our training academy. Also talk with your contact person regarding individual further training opportunities. 

What is the application process like?

As soon as you have submitted your documents, we will check them and contact you. If you fulfil the criteria for the role in question, we will invite you to attend a digital or in-person interview, depending on your preference. One-day shadowing sessions are also possible on request, and are mandatory in some cases. You can expect to receive a definitive response to your application around one week after the interview (and the shadowing session where relevant).

Can I apply to the Charité if I am rejoining the workforce?

We also warmly welcome people who have taken an extended break from their chosen profession or who have not worked in the hospital sector for a long time. We will work with them to find a way back to work that is tailored to suit their individual needs.
