Immunological training in Austria

The cooperation with the European Union of Medical Specialists (IUMS) for harmonization with the European curricula in immunology was indispensable for this ÖGAI specialist group. A further goal is the creation of accompanying structures to enable the further training of immunologists (PhDs) as well as clinical immunologists (MDs) and to secure their accreditation.
