Electives in Israel

The Jewish Medical Association (UK) supports electives in Israel which aims to foster links between all UK medical schools, and medical students, with Israeli medicine.

• The scheme is advertised to all medical schools at the start of the academic year.
• All UK medical students are eligible for these awards
• Applications are invited on a rolling basis as the timing of electives varies considerably between medical schools.
• Applications must include a curriculum vitae, a covering letter explaining the nature of the elective, documentation of approval from the student’s medical school for the elective programme, and documentation from the host teaching hospital / medical school that the student has been accepted.
• On completion of the elective a written report is required.
• Students may also be selected to give an oral presentation on their experiences to members of the Association.
• Students are placed on the mailing list and are expected to maintain contact and if appropriate to become full members of the Association on graduation

In addition to this scheme, occasional ad hoc scholarships have been awarded to students doing specific courses (e.g. Medical Ethics).

Applications for a Jewish Medical Association (UK) Elective Scholarship in Israel should normally be made at least three months in advance of the start date for your elective.

Please contact  info@jewishmedicalassociationuk.org if you have any queries, and notify the Association by email when you send in your application.

The application form can be found here.

The completed application (hardcopy) should be sent to Jewish Medical Association (UK) PO Box 38278 London NW3 4YG. Alternatively electronic applications can be sent to info@jewishmedicalassociationuk.org.

You should expect to be notified about the outcome of the application within one month of the Association receiving it.
