In addition to teaching medical and dental students, the Charité offers several different medically related international Master's and doctoral graduate programs. The master's and doctoral program in Medical Neuroscience is one of these programs. It operates under the auspices of the Charité's dean of teaching, Prof. Joachim Spranger, and in conjunction with the Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin, the Berlin Institute of Health and the European MSc Programm Neurasmus. The program is overseen by two steering committees consisting of eight members each. The daily running of the program is managed by four staff members.

Translating Research to Treatments

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.

Supporting Autonomy and Independence

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.

Beyond graduation: Alumni Network, Continuing Education and Training

After graduation, we keep contact with our alumni, whos professioanal expierence supports us in adapting the program's content and structures to the requirements of the academic and private job market. As a result, we teamed up with several partners to enable current and former students to develop additional skills important for innovation management, entrepreneurship in biomedical science, industrial placements and others.
