American Austrian Max Kade Foundation

American Austrian Max Kade Foundation

This is a four week clinical elective. Students must first complete the IMSE application stating reasons why they want this elective and what they hope to gain by the experience. After the international committee provides approval, the second step is to apply to the Max Kade program directly. The American Austrian Foundation and the Max Kade Clinical Elective program provide a travel stipend and pocket money, as well as accommodations during a one-month rotation in Austria. A working knowledge of German is helpful but not a requirement. No host mentor letter is required because the Max Kade Foundation sets up the elective in collaboration with the student. Drs. Laura Greisman or Radhika Sundararajan are the WCM faculty mentor and coordinates with the Max Kade staff. (up to 15 students per year)
