The Institute for Social Medicine, Epidemiology and Health Economics of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin represents the clinical-theoretical field of social medicine with its disciplines epidemiology, demography, prevention and health economics at the medical faculty Charité.

We are in the canon of the Charité institutions and as the largest institute in the CharitéCentrum 1 for human and health sciences with a team of about 50 employees and additional visiting scientists, student employees and doctoral students in research and teaching as well as in health care.

Our research focuses on epidemiology and prevention, health economics and health systems research, global health sciences and complementary and integrative medicine.

In the various occupational groups, which work together in an interdisciplinary manner within the teams, networking with clinical and basic sciences, clinics and the humanities and social sciences is particularly reflected. Physicians, psychologists, health economists, statisticians, data managers, study nurses and secretariats work together on the same projects and benefit each other from their different education and scientific socialization.

For our research projects, we solicit over € 1 million in funding annually. Our research results are published in international journals.
