The PhD Program concerns the care of multimorbid geriatric patients. It takes a multidisciplinary approach in combining different perspectives on delivering care to the elderly. Students have completed courses of studies such as nursing, social education, sociology, psychology, or public health. Likewise, doctoral projects are overseen by members of various disciplines including medicine. These disciplines are represented in the Center for Human and Health Sciences of the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, where the PhD Program is located. The doctoral projects are grouped into three main topics--Care Problems and Interventions, Quality of Life and Self-Determination, and Care Structures and Quality.
