Charité – Campus Benjamin Franklin
When Berlin was divided after the war, the west part of the city no longer had a university, which is why the Freie Universität Berlin was founded in 1948. Klinikum Steglitz was established in the south of Berlin, a complex comprising numerous institutes, departments and lecture theatres. Now renamed Universitätsklinikum Benjamin Franklin, the hospital merged with the Charité in 2003, creating today’s university teaching hospital: Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
Nowadays, Campus Benjamin Franklin specializes particularly in degenerative diseases and later-life medicine. Experts here treat dementia and degenerative brain diseases, among other things.
