The Salzburg Medical Seminars

CHPS, in collaboration with the American Austrian Foundation (AAF) and Open Society Institute New York (OSI) runs, in Romania, the The Salzburg Medical Seminars program.

The purpose of this program is to bring together physicians and professors from renown hospitals from the US and young physicians from Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the ex-USSR countries so that the latter find out about the latest evolutions from the health-care area.

The Salzburg Medical Seminars program targets specialist physicians and last-year residents fluent in English. The transportation, accommodation and meals are covered by the American Austrian Foundation.

2013 results have covered:

  • 35 seminars for which 99 physicians have applied;
  • 33 physicians have been selected for and participated to the Medical Seminars

The project has started in 1999 and the financing is provided by Open Society Institute New York and  the American Austrian Foundation.
