Joint Corporation of Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
The Berlin city and state House of Representatives passed an interim law for the purpose of restructuring university medicine in Berlin. It came into effect on June 1, 2003. The Department of Medicine at Freie Universität Berlin and the Medical Faculty at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin were united in a new joint corporation called Charité. The new organization includes all the areas of responsibility with regard to research and teaching in the fields of medicine and dentistry previously covered by the respective departments in the two universities.
