Rudolf Ludwig Karl Virchow
Langenbeck Virchow Haus
Restored with the support of B. Braun Aesculap
The goal of the Berlin Medical Association and the German Surgery Association in building the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus in 1913 was “to promote scientific efforts across the entire field of medicine, to build up a relationship of friendly cooperation among members and to safeguard the interests of the medical profession" as well as "to unite the surgical workforce in face of the constantly expanding scope of scientific endeavour, to facilitate the exchange of ideas through personal intercourse and to foster cooperative activity".
Since its reopening in 2005, the Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus can now once again fulfil this ambition, together with twenty professional associations, the Aesculap Academy with its training activities, and other medical partners. As a centre for medicine in Berlin, it should also act internationally to promote the ongoing training of medical professionals.
