  Open Medical Institute

The Open Medical Institute (OMI) is an international initiative for medical professionals, which through education and research, aims to improve healthcare on a global scale. Fellows trained by the OMI are equipped to significantly improve healthcare delivery in their own countries. The program was founded in 1993 by the American Austrian Foundation (AAF) and the Open Society Foundations (OSF) in close collaboration with physicians from Weill Cornell Medicine. Over the past decades, many leading medical institutions in the United States and Europe have joined this initiative by providing 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 25,000 fellowships to physicians from 129 different countries, to whom more than 3,400 observerships in Austrian and American hospitals have been granted.
