Open Medical Institute
The Open Medical Institute (OMI) is an international educational initiative for medical professionals. The physicians trained by the OMI are equipped to significantly improve healthcare delivery in their countries. To prevent brain drain and initiate lasting brain gain, the OMI offers several postgraduate programs and mentors healthcare professionals over the course of their career. Leading medical institutions in the United States and Europe joined this initiative and provide highly committed faculty, who donate their time and expertise, sharing knowledge and experience with colleagues from around the world. Since 1993, the OMI has awarded more than 24,500 fellowships to physicians from 128 different countries, to whom more than 3,400 observerships in Austrian and American hospitals have been granted.
