The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has been expceptionally challenging für the entire world. For us at Vienna Medical Academy, it has led to intense growth.

We provide our clients with the most suitable solution for every continuing education.

We have our own definition of profit!

The WMA GmbH is a full subsidiary of the Vienna Medical Academy, a non-profit organisation whose defined purpose is the facilitation of postgraduate medical education. This allows us to really focus on the scientific and educational objectives of our clients.

Having been reliable congress organisers for decades, we are able to meet any requirements for the organisation of your event.

HISTORY

SERVING THE MEDICAL FIELD FOR OVER 120 YEARS

We are probably the oldest professional conference organiser and association management company in the world.

 

Established as the "Course Office for Postgraduate Medical Education" in 1896, the Vienna Medical Academy was officially founded 1924 by Julius Wagner-Jauregg, subsequently a Nobel Laureate. Since then it has organized courses and, seminars as well as congresses, and it serves medical societies as their administrative office. In 1997 the WMA GmbH was founded as a full subsidiary of the Vienna Medical Academy.  

The VMA is situated on the New University Campus. The construction of the historical building in which the VMA is accommodated  was started in 1693 under the Austrian Emperor Leopold I and, after his death, continued by Empress Maria Theresia's eldest son, Emperor Joseph II.

Up to the year 1992 all University clinics were located on this campus. It is on these premises that the roots of the famous "Wiener Medizinische Schule" are to be found. Professors of medicine such as, Hyrtl, Semmelweis, Rokitansky, Hebra, Billroth, Koller, Escherich, Wertheim, Pirquet, Landsteiner, Wagner-Jauregg, Knaus - to name only a few - worked and taught at these clinics.
