Vienna, Austria

Embark on an enriching ISAPS Fellowship in the cultural haven of Vienna, Austria. Renowned for its imperial history and artistic legacy, Vienna provides the perfect backdrop for refining your surgical expertise amidst the charm of a European capital.

The Radetzky Villa, once the residence of Graf Radetzky of Radetz, former head of the Habsburg army in the 19th century, has been transformed into a modern private clinic, preserving its classic Viennese charm. This state-of-the-art facility offers a comprehensive range of aesthetic surgery services, employing cutting-edge techniques that prioritize safety and efficacy.

The fellow will gain comprehensive exposure to the operations of a premium private clinic, encompassing not only practical experience in aesthetic surgery but also insights into business management, conceptualization, and how to develop a vision. Networking opportunities with fellow plastic surgeons and reputable clinics in the city will provide a diverse range of perspectives and attitudes within the plastic surgery field.
