George Washington University’s International Medical Programs (IMP) honored the AAF for the Max Kade Clinical Clerkship Program, at its annual dinner in Washington, DC. Ambassador William Eacho, former US Ambassador to Austria and AAF Board member accepted the award on behalf of the American Austrian Foundation.

This program, which fosters knowledge and experience exchange between 4th year American and Austrian medical students, through clinical rotations began in 1996 and has provided a total of 463 one-month clinical clerkships. We aim to supplement the students’ education and broaden their horizons by exposing them to a foreign health care system and culture.
