On December 5, 2013, the “Music for Medicine - 17th Annual Benefit Concert” honoring the 20th anniversary of the Salzburg Weill Cornell Seminars of The Open Medical Institute – Medical Education beyond Borders took place at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall. The concert included performances by members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and The Vienna Boys Choir.
Music for Medicine supports the Open Medical Institute, a program founded by The American Austrian Foundation and physicians from the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Since 1993, the Salzburg Weill Cornell Seminars of the Open Medical Institute has awarded more than 15,000 fellowships to English-speaking physicians from developing nations worldwide, enabling them to participate in seminars taught by teaching physicians and physicians from various U.S. and European medical institutes. The program mentors young, promising physicians and offers them multiple opportunities to meet with outstanding faculty members to advance their academic and clinical skills.
