Weill Cornell OMInar in Dermatology

Dec 3, 2020

Course director Dr. Richard D. Granstein, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medicine, has been collaborating with the Open Medical Institute for twelve years, starting with the first OMI seminar in Dermatology in 2008. He and his colleagues have come to Salzburg almost every year since, teaching fellows cutting-edge knowledge and techniques in the field of dermatology.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s course had to be converted to a two-day OMInar led by Dr. Richard D. Granstein and Dr. Georg Stary. 28 fellows from 16 countries had the opportunity to listen and ask questions to seven leading experts from Weill Cornell Medicine and the Medical University of Vienna, all of whom are OMI veterans.
