Andlinger Residency Exchange

The American Austrian Foundation awards fellowships to outstanding American and Austrian medical residents to participate in the Andlinger Residency Exchange Fellowship Program.

The Andlinger Residency Exchange supports training for Austrian medical residents in the United States and for American medical residents in Austria at one of our partner institutions. Fellows are encouraged to do rotations in American and Austrian hospitals for a minimum of two weeks up to a maximum of one month. The program aims to supplement the resident’s education and to broaden his/her experience through exposure to a foreign healthcare system.

The fellowship program bears the name of Mr. Gerhard R. Andlinger († 1931 – 2017), a successful American businessman with Austrian roots and a trustee of the AAF. Mr. Andlinger generously supported this program since its inception. Started in 1992, more than 179 medical residents from Austria and the United States successfully participated in this bilateral exchange.
