OMI Salzburg Medical Seminars


The OMI - Salzburg Medical Seminars (the Salzburg-Weill Cornell Seminars, the Salzburg-CHOP Seminars for Pediatrics, the Salzburg-Cleveland Seminars, the Salzburg-Duke Seminar and the Salzburg-Columbia Seminars) are the first step in OMI’s postgraduate medical education program. The seminars are taught by physicians from leading American hospitals and their affiliated medical schools and are directed to physicians practicing in Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the former Soviet Union and other countries in transition.


The program operates under the auspices of The American Austrian Foundation and the Salzburg Stiftung of the AAF, and is funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research
and The Open Society Foundations, as well as corporate and individual donors.

From 1993 - 2004, the seminars took place at Schloss Leopoldskron, home of the Salzburg Seminars, an American foundation established in 1946 after World War II. In 2003, the Salzburg Stiftung of the AAF purchased Schloss Arenberg, which is now the site of the Salzburg Medical Seminars.
