TESTIMONIALS FROM FELLOWS

TESTIMONIALS FROM FELLOWS
NEONATOLOGIST, SLOVAKIA
This educational program not only changed my
life, it saved the lives of my newborn babies who
otherwise would not have had a chance.
PEDIATRICIAN, SERBIA
Everything is completely different where I come
from. My wish to learn, to become a better doctor
and to change something, was never understood
in my homeplace, and in my country either. After
the seminar, I came back to reality with a different
perspective and a lot of motivation, that I haven’t
felt for a long period of time. The week in Salzburg
showed me that there are still people who want to
share their knowledge, their experience and good
will, with people all around the world who don’t
have a chance to see or experience that much often.
ONCOLOGIST, MOLDOVA
I’d like to thank you again for the wonderful
possibility to attend Salzburg Medical Seminars
on Oncology A: Hematologic Malignancies,
especially for the updated medical information
and skills, new professional contacts and indelible
breathtaking impressions about Austria.
GYNECOLOGIST, BULGARIA
I would like to thank you for the wonderful week I
spent in Salzburg. I had an astonishing experience.
I significantly improved my knowledge, I made new
contacts and I met many new friends. All of that
made me want to be part of this experience again
in the future. But most of all, I have to express
my respect for all of the faculty. Despite your
sophisticated lectures, you behaved so friendly that
in the end of the week I felt you were more like
friends and all this made me respect you more and
more. Thank you very much!
