Humes Visiting Professorship

The Humes Visiting Professorships are a bequest by the estate of late AAF Trustee and Cornell Medical University graduate Dr. Jean Humes in memory of her husband, John P. Humes, a former U.S. Ambassador to Austria and the first president of The American Austrian Foundation.

This professorship is awarded by a committee of experts and only a course director and the corresponding co-course director of a Salzburg Medical Seminar is eligible for the Humes Visiting Professorship.

Since the program began in 1990, 41 Humes Visiting Professorships have been awarded in the areas of urology, molecular biology, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, cardiac surgery, radiology, neurology, anesthesiology, orthopedics, cardiology, otolaryngology, thoracic surgery, oncology, family medicine, infectious diseases, psychiatry, dermatology, ophthalmology and palliative care.

Humes Visiting Professors visit each other’s institutions and give (as a minimum) two lectures on cutting edge developments in their field, grand rounds with residents and attending physicians, and a session with case presentations. Recipients schedule the visit themselves and submit the schedule to the AAF for documentation purposes.
