Besides in depth theoretical training, the MSc program emphasizes state-of-the art practical lab experience, preparing graduates for continued research as PhD students.

The PhD program places a high emphasis on scientific excellence, provides a multidisciplinary research and learning environment and offers extensive supervision and tutoring allowing students to complete their projects within 3 years. The supervised research project stands in the center of the PhD program, complemented by colloquia, workshops and training in professional skills. Our PhD students are member of the Öffnet externen Link im aktuellen FensterHumboldt-Graduate-School providing an excellent service and training in transferable skills.

Natalia Denisova, MSc Medical Neurosciences, graduated 2012

While studying medicine at my University I always knew that I would deal with brain diseases. Nothing else in human body has comparable complex structure and marvelous functions as nervous system. To succeed in my future clinical practice I decided to get a solid theoretical knowledge of neuroscience. And I was right to choose International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences at Charité for this purpose. During the course I have many opportunities to listen to first hand scientific lectures in Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology and Neuropathology, work at my own research project in the lab and gain all necessary scientific skills. I am sure that an experience acquired here will give me competitive advantages at the residency time.

Tian Zhang, MSc Medical Neurosciences, PhD Student

I am a medical student with great interest in doing research in the fields of both neurology and immunology. In the past two years, the Medical Neuroscience Master’s program has provided us with diverse opportunities and broad perspectives to the basic knowledge of neurosciences as well as the cutting-edge researches in a variety of neurologic diseases. During my three lab rotations, I have been exposed to a very open and friendly atmosphere of discussing scientific questions and exchanging experimental experiences with colleagues that have different backgrounds. Gradually, I find my interest in stroke research and will continue my PhD also here in Berlin, where I would like to recommend as one of the best places to pursue a highly qualified scientific education in neuroscience and other interdisciplinary fields.
