Einstein Student Support for Corona Medical Emergency 
Einstein Foundation launches aid program to support medical care in Berlin
 
The Einstein Foundation Berlin has launched an aid program to fund the temporary deployment of student helpers at CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin. As part of its ‘Einstein Student Support for Corona Medical Emergency’ program, the Einstein Foundation will provide €300,000 to boost basic medical services. Over the next three months, this will enable Charité to pay up to 100 students a salary of €1,000 per month. The program is intended to address a predicted shortage of nursing staff which is expected as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Einstein Foundation hopes to use this initiative to help Charité to better meet the medical and nursing challenges ahead. By supporting students, we also wish to recognize and encourage the social commitment of our young people,” says Günter Stock, Chief Executive Officer of the Einstein Foundation.

“We very much welcome this initiative. Over the coming days and weeks, a large number of patients will require treatment. During this time, both medical and nursing students will have the opportunity to make a real difference. Many of these students gained nursing experience or completed relevant training before starting their studies,” says Heyo K. Kroemer, Chief Executive Officer of CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin.

Applications are invited from students of Charité and Alice Salomon Hochschule. The application process is simple. Interested students will need to complete the volunteer form and email this to stud-freiwillige(at)charite.de. Non-Charité students will also need to attach proof of university enrollment. Resumés/CVs, transcripts or other documents will not be required. Successful applicants will be selected and deployed based on their suitability for a particular role. Students will be able to decide the duration of their deployment and arrange their work schedules to fit around other commitments.
