General information

All courses can only be booked via the Charité's learning objectives platform (link see "Book event" above). The different courses serve to acquire practical doctoral skills.

For a detailed understanding and the concrete application of the individual course contents, it is assumed that the students will independently deal with the taught contents.

You must therefore be able to speak German or English! Otherwise we cannot give you ECTS points for the course.

In the sense of equality, doctoral students with children, relatives in need of care, full-time employees or similar obligations who have problems finding an appointment can contact us by e-mail and we will try to find an individual solution.
