“This unique medical experience in Vienna has helped me to understand how an established healthcare system works. Doctors meet their patients in a respectful and competent manner and have comprehensive training available. I have been able to expand my knowledge here through experience-exchange. For me a very valuable treasure, which I may take home.”

“The organization of the OMI program is of a very high quality, the conditions for a study visit are very good. One of the special features is that doctors from all over the world meet here and exchange experiences with each other, which contributes to the development of better healthcare-systems for all of us. ”


Stevan Ivanoski, M.D.

“Only by devoting yourself to the pursuit of medical knowledge you can contribute to the best treatments possible. I am honored to be able to learn and gain experience in the center of medical education in Europe, in Vienna. I met one of the best doctors from around the world and shared experiences while talking about ideas.”

“I appreciate the OMI activities because it does not only improve the medical knowledge of our visiting colleagues but also opens our mind and understanding of different health- and education systems worldwide. During my work for the AAF I have not only made friends with my outstanding colleagues from Cornell Univ./ New York but also with many young, gifted doctors from many countries. It is an honour to work for the AAF-OMI Project.”

„The OMI-Vienna activities are interesting and helpful for both sides: The fellows from various countries and the Austrian colleagues benefit from stimulating medical discussions and such a program also broadens the social and cultural understanding of the involved parties. Joined scientific programs are made possible and may help to answer questions that a single institution might have difficulties to approach. Personally I am very glad being part of the OMI Vienna project which last but not least can also be considered a political project for friendship among nations and for world peace.”

“The main impact that Vienna OMI had on medicine in Bosnia and Herzegovina is through the medical staff it educated. Positive practices observed and learned during the stay of our doctors were adopted and transferred into our medical system in the range of our possibilities. Vienna-OMI observership is now part of the CV of many doctors from different countries. I’m glad to state that during my three visits I’ve written articles together with Austrian doctors which were published.”
