The ECVP/ESVP Education Committee is now organising the Summer School 2017 which will take place in Berlin, Germany, from Monday 17th July to Friday 28th July 2017.

Berlin is the largest city and the capital of Germany with 3.5 Mio citizens. The name Berlin comes from the Slavic word “berlo” for swamp, morass or wet place. The city district of Berlin includes many lakes, woods and the beautiful river Spree. At the end of World War II, Berlin was divided in four sectors which culminated in the construction of the “Berlin Wall” 16 years later. In both parts, East and West Berlin, separate institutions existed for veterinary medical university education: traditional Humboldt University in East Berlin and Freie Universität, newly established in 1948, in West Berlin. In the aftermath of the Fall of the Wall on the 9th of November 1989, the medical institutes were restructured. While Human Medicine is now represented by the Charité University Medicine, jointly hosted by Freie Universität and Humboldt University, the two former Veterinary Medicine Faculties were merged into a single Faculty at Freie Universität, hosting this year’s Summer School. Modern Berlin is famous for its international atmosphere, multi-cultural environment, liveliness and creativity. Whatever you are looking for, you can find it in Berlin nearly anywhere and always.
