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.
