Emek Medical Center will only consider medical students studying overseas who are learning in a university where the academic standards and processes are comparable to those used to accredit medical schools in the United States. As graduates (as foreign graduates), they would be prepared for and have the right to pass the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE).
Emek Medical Center is a teaching institution affiliated with the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine of the Technion Institute of Technology. We accept requests from medical students studying overseas to perform clerkships within our hospital. The fee is $40 per 7-day week (or any number of days less than 7). e.g. 10 day clerkship = $40 x 2 = $80. This fee is to be paid in full for the entire requested clerkship period on the day of arrival/registration at the hospital cashier’s desk. There will be no refunds or discounts for days not on campus.
Student requests begin with Larry Rich / Director of Development & International Public Relations – via email only: firstname.lastname@example.org
Only students who have completed their 4th year of study (clinical phase) will be accepted for rotations
To begin the elective process, Emek requires:
Personal travel & accident insurance (copy for Human Resources must be provided upon arrival)
The period of clerkship is not an employer/employee relationship.
Larry will check and verify student acceptance with the relevant Department Heads.
Students requiring rooming will be informed as to availability for the requested dates. Each room houses up to 3 people. Room fee: $15 \ 50 NIS per day per student (or the equivalent in shekels) for the entire requested clerkship period. This fee is to be paid in full on the day of arrival/registration at the hospital cashier’s desk. There will be no refunds or discounts for days not on campus. The rooming fee includes:
Hot lunches in our staff dining hall cost 11 Israeli shekels per meal = about $3. They would purchase these coupons here upon their arrival and may pay via credit card for amounts of 30 Israeli shekels or more. Breakfast coffee and bread are usually in the department at no charge and they would make their own arrangements for dinner (we have a public cafeteria in the hospital).
There are designated free Wi-Fi areas throughout the hospital.
Students will be expected to arrive in Emek ONLY on a Monday or Thursday, in the AM and they are to go straight to Human Resources where they will complete the registration process with Eli or Liron.
From there, they will go to:
The staff medical clinic where their vaccinations will be verified
