BIH-Charité Clinician Scientist Programmes

Closing Date: 15/03/2023

Residency training programmes for physicians to conduct clinical and translational research with a contractually regulated share of working time at a Charité hospital in Berlin.

The Charité – Universitätsmedizin (Charité University Hospital) is a single medical faculty, which serves the Freie Universität, Berlin, and the Humboldt Universität, Berlin. As one of the largest European university clinics, the Charité has four campuses and about hundred clinics and institutes, which make up a total of seventeen different Charité centres. The Charité supports research, teaching and clinical care of the highest international standard.

The BIH-Charité Clinician Scientist Programme is a scientifically and clinically structured residency training programme which supports physicians with a clearly recognisable scientific research interest to conduct scientific research at an academically managed Charité clinical institution.

During multi-year programme, fellows are supported by mentors. It offers a contractually regulated share of working time (‘protected time’) which can be dedicated to clinical and translational research.

There are two programmes that can succeed each other: the Junior Clinician Scientist Programme (JCSP) and the Clinician Scientist Programme (CSP). The JCSP is aimed at physicians in their first and second year of residency training. The CSP supports physicians from their fourth year of residency training. At the end of the CSP, residency training is completed.

In the case of the CSP, up to 50% of the contracted hours may be dedicated to research. Fellows in the JCSP may dedicated up to 20% of their time to research.
