Strategic partnership
Cooperation with the German Heart Centre of the Charité

Our training and further education programs are carried out in cooperation with the German Heart Centre of the Charité (DHZC). As one of the world’s leading heart centres, the DHZC sets standards in patient care and is equally committed to education and science as we are. Our academy provides training and further education for the DHZC and thus contributes to their staff recruitment and development. At the same time, DHZC experts teach in the programs of the DHZB Academy, thus ensuring a high degree of practical relevance and topicality.

This special partnership is rooted in the history of the German Heart Centre Berlin, which merged with Charité’s cardiology facilities on 1 January 2023. The DHZB Academy is sponsored by the DHZB Foundation, which is jointly responsible for the strategic development of the DHZC through equal representation on the DHZC Board of Directors and participation in the Charité Supervisory Board. We shape professional perspectives in healthcare and contribute to Berlin’s visibility in the cardiovascular landscape.
