Infectious Diseases and Neurology, Ichilov (Sourasky) Hospital, Tel Aviv, Israel

We undertook our electives in Tel Aviv at the Ichilov (Sourasky) Hospital in Tel Aviv.

Lizzie worked  with the Infectious Diseases team under the supervision of Professor Shapiro.  She spent most of her time on ward rounds and in clinical meetings.  The team were very friendly and conducted all of their clinical work in English while she was there, which made her experience much more worthwhile.

Owen worked with the Neurology team headed by Professor Giladi.  This was a large department which offered an excellent opportunity to see a broad range of conditions.  The grand rounds and journal clubs, which were run weekly, were particularly interesting.  There was a very “relaxed” atmosphere among the doctors on the ward and I was made to feel very welcome.

In addition to our time spent in the hospital and around Tel Aviv, we felt this was a brilliant opportunity as first time visitors, for us to explore Israel.  We visited Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee, Haifa, Acre, Eilat and also made a short trip to Petra.  It was a wonderful experience and we are both very pleased we chose to do our elective in Israel.
