On behalf of our University I am very pleased that the 25th World Congress on CONTROVERSIES IN OBSTETRICS, GYNECOLOGY & INFERTILITY takes place in Vienna in 2017, once again. It is a privilege for us to host this well-known congress and I want to warmly welcome you here at the Medical University of Vienna.
Vienna is not only a capital of music but also of academic medicine and is among the top international event locations. The Medical University of Vienna is not only the largest medical institution in Austria, it is also among the top 20 medical research institutions in Europe and provides Europe’s largest hospital, the AKH in Vienna with its highly qualified medical staff.
With its 650-year history and tradition the Medical University of Vienna has developed into a modern medical research institution. Internationally competitive medical research and the development of innovative solutions for relevant medical needs such as those covered by this congress are core tasks of our institution.
I sincerely hope that your time in Vienna will enable you to acquire inspiring new contacts, to sustain old friendships and will serve as a fruitful basis for progress in your work.
I wish you inspiring and successful days in Vienna.
o.Univ. Prof. Dr. Markus Müller
