After his medical studies in Vienna, including his stay abroad in the U.S., he began his scientific career at the Vienna University Clinic for Clinical Pharmacology in the research group for experimental oncology. In 2006, he moved to the University Clinic for Internal Medicine, where he completed his clinical training as a specialist in Internal Medicine at the department of gastroenterology and hepatology. There, he also successfully completed the 3-year supplementary specialization in gastroenterology and hepatology, as well as internal intensive care medicine. Doc. Sieghart qualified as a university lecturer at the age of 34 in the field of Internal Medicine and, after successfully fulfilling a qualification agreement with the Medical University of Vienna, obtained the title of "Associate Professor". His clinical research in the field of liver cancer resulted in numerous publications in leading international journals, the award of multiple research grants, and more than 60 invitations to lecture both at home and abroad.
Since 2013, Doc.
