Academic Programs at the Institute of Health and Nursing Science

You are here:

We are involved in various undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.

In teaching, we at the Institute of Health and Nursing Science continue to see ourselves committed to the university education and training of teachers for health professions. In the meantime, our range of courses has been gradually modernised. Today, we are responsible for and coordinate the undergraduate Bachelor's programme in Health Sciences and the consecutive Master's programme in Health Professions Education for teaching and learning in the health professions at the Institute. We are also involved in the design of the undergraduate Bachelor's programme in Nursing Care at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.

Bachelor in Health Sciences

The multidisciplinary Bachelor in Health Sciences is open to nurses, therapists and other trained health care practitioners. It is, together with programs in medicine and dentistry, one of only three bachelor programs at the Charité Berlin. The program combines contents from the sciences, social sciences and humanities and provides a general foundation as well as specific professional qualifications for employment in a variety of management positions in the health sector. The degree program is managed by the IGPW and implemented in collaboration with other institutes and centers at the Charité Berlin.

Master in Health Professions Education

The Master's programme in Health Professions Education, which is based on international models, has replaced the traditional diploma programme in Medical and Nursing Education. It is designed to qualify students to take on responsible tasks in teaching at various training and further education institutions for health professions - both in the lecture hall, in the seminar room and in clinical settings. It also serves to promote the next generation of educational scientists. The consecutive degree programme is offered in close cooperation with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Institute of Educational Sciences at Humboldt University Berlin.


The Bachelor's Degree in Health Sciences and the Master’s Degree in Health Professions Education at the Charité Berlin has been program accredited by the German Accreditation Agency in Health and Social Sciences (AHPGS) until February 2024. The program is regularly reviewed to ensure compliance with formal requirements and to promote quality in teaching and learning.
