Eight more physicians will be participating in the Salzburg International Medical Seminars Program during 2011.
The FAR Fellowship Alumni Association (FARFAA) began collaborating with the Salzburg Seminars, a program of the Open Medical Institute, in 2003. In 2010 FAR gave grants to seven medical specialists who traveled to Austria to learn how to become Continuing Medical Education Program (CME) trainers. Participants were selected by the FARFAA medical board and confirmed by the American Austrian Foundation.
Based on the first year’s success and very positive feedback, FAR’s board of directors decided to continue to provide travel grants to Armenian doctors so they could participate. A new agreement to continue the program this year was signed on April 26.
