Victor Theodor Adolf Georg Schilling studied at the Kaiser-Wilhelms-Akademie in Berlin, obtaining his doctorate in 1909. From 1910 to 1913 he was assigned to the Hamburger Tropeninstitut, and during the World War was a corps hygienist in Galicia and Russia, subsequently advisory army hygienist in Aleppo and head of the bacteriological teaching laboratory for the Turkish army in Constantinople. In 1919 he became divisional physician (Stationsarzt) in the I. Medical clinic of the Charité. He became Privatdozent of internal medicine in 1921, in 1922 ausserordentlicher professor in Berlin.
