Program description

Voyage to Medicine

TAU International is proud to offer an incredibly unique opportunity for undergraduate study abroad students who are interested in or currently pursuing pre-medicine or health sciences studies. Our newly relaunched Fall Semester Voyage to Medicine program combines practical experience at one of Israel’s leading hospitals, clinical research, and EMT volunteer work together with academic studies. This program is the result of a special collaboration of TAU International, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, and Magen David Adom (the Israeli Red Cross).

The program provides a truly immersive experience for students in the medical and health care field in Israel to gain first hand views and experiences in one of Israel’s finest hospitals under the guidance of expert physicians in the field. Alongside rigorous academic courses taught at TAU, students have the opportunity one full day per week to shadow hospital staff members and be integrated in the daily activity of the hospital departments such as the ER and ORs, Pediatrics and Orthopedics, Gynecology and Plastics and more. Students witness leading medical techniques and procedures, converse with patients and begin to understand what it means to be part of a medical team at a level one trauma center. In addition, students volunteer throughout the semester as EMTs with the Magen David Adom (the Israeli Red Cross).
