Fireside chats

Charité Alumni represents communication and networking between current and former students and members of the Universitätsmedizin Berlin hospital. The interactive fireside chats are the first Charité Alumni events to be held on a regular basis.

Event format

Once a month, someone from within Charité is invited for a fireside chat, which involves a direct dialogue with participants. The aim is to highlight people and areas linked to Charité and to use this to strengthen the internal network at the Universitätsmedizin Berlin hospital.

Going forward, the fireside chats will be held on the fourth Thursday of every month from 18:00 to 19:00; in view of the ongoing pandemic, they will take place on Microsoft TEAMS for the foreseeable future. Although we can't provide a fire online, we hope that we will still be able to create the same cosy, familiar and intimate atmosphere.

The event series is intended to raise awareness of the guests and their work across various areas. The format is normally a dialogue (although it can also be a presentation) with the opportunity for people to then ask moderated questions afterwards. This is the ideal way for our Charité representatives to share their individual and personal stories with listeners.

You can register for each fireside chat by logging into our free portal and navigating to "Events" for the relevant details:
