Israeli Medical Students

Israeli medical students may choose to do their electives in the UK

Over the years there have been several programmes to facilitate this that have been supported by the Association and its members.

A successful joint scheme with the student branch of the Israeli Medical Association was organised by Dr Alan Naftalin and Prof Susan Gelding. Details (with feedback) can be accessed here.

Several medical students from the Bar Ilan University Medical School (based in Safed) have come to do on electives in the UK. Accommodation was provided by Prof Liz Lighstone, and the UJIA assisted with financial support. The students who took part in this programme, and the main medical schools and hospitals where they were based in London, are listed here. In addition several members of the Association met with them and told them about their work.
