Leah, you don’t indicate where you have already researched but there are extensive indexes for Lwow on JRI-Poland.org, many of them linked to the original records. GesherGalicia.org has an ongoing indexing project for Jewish medical students from Lwow University, as well as the Jagiellonian University (Krakow), Pest University & Prague University, and GenTeam.at has a database of medical students from Vienna University, as well as other Vienna-related lists.

Recently, I posted a query regarding my HEILPERN family & its extended family. Looking at old photos with & without id, and recalling names my father mentioned being, "cousins of some sort."  I hope to connect these faces/names to my family tree, but there are BIG gaps. I posted 3 photos on View Mate about a week ago, #88955-57 hoping to id the men shown.  The names I have in mind would connect on my father's maternal line, and from what I know so far, they would likely be in these families: STROH, PINELES & RAPPAPORT, (and maybe POLTURAK). My grandmother was, Ernestine Lea Korpus, born 1881, in Lemberg/Lwow/Lviv. Most of these families were also in that area, and eventually many of them ended up in Wien/Vienna & a lot of them were in the medical field.  Any suggestions on finding more siblings & married-in people & resulting children connected to these names; any possible relations along the family names mentioned here?
