Overseas Medical Student Protocol

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.

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 elective clerkships within our hospital.  The fee for Israeli students is $100 per 7-day week (or any number of days less than 7).  E.g. 10 day clerkship = $100 x 2 = $200.  The fee for non-Israeli students is $200 per 7-day week (or any number of days less than 7).  E.g. 10 day clerkship = $200 x 2 = $400. 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:  rich_l@clalit.org.il 

 Only students who have completed their 4th year of study (clinical phase) will be accepted for rotations

 To begin the elective process, Emek requires:

    • A referral letter (sent to Larry) from their University that says:
      Their current student status (what year)
      What Clinical Clerkship (in which medical departments) they wish to study (surgery, pediatrics, internal medicine, orthopedics, etc., etc.)
      The exact dates they wish to study here
    • Larry will check and verify student acceptance with the relevant Department Heads.
    • The Emek Head of Department must review (but not sign) the universities syllabus before the student is accepted.  There will be no advance commitment to cover all the subjects in any given syllabus.    
    • Proof of vaccinations:  (to be verified in the Emek Staff Medical Clinic on the day of registration or before):
      • Valid Covid 19 vaccination
      • Tuberculosis (Manteaux test)   
      • Flu
      • Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis
      • MMR- Mumps, Measles & Rubella 
      • Chicken Pox
      • Polio
      • Hepatitis B – HBV, antibody level to Hepatitis B should be above 10

Personal travel & accident insurance (copy for Human Resources must be provided upon arrival)

The period of clerkship is not an employer/employee relationship.

  • Upon completion of the elective, the student is required to leave a copy of the Department Head's authorization of elective completion.
  • Students are expected to submit a review in writing upon completion of their rotations in Human Resources. 

Students requiring rooming will be informed as to availability for the requested dates.  Each room houses up to three people.  Room fee (including a hot lunch):  $250 per week (or partial week) 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:

  • Electricity / air conditioning
  • Bedding
  • Water
  • Refrigerator
  • Kitchen equipment
  • Furniture
  • Wi Fi

Hot lunches in our staff dining hall (for students not sleeping on campus) 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 NO hot lunches on Friday or Saturday in the staff-dining hall.  Students must make their own arrangement.

There are designated free Wi-Fi areas throughout the hospital.

Students will be expected to arrive in Emek in the AM and they are to go straight to Human Resources where they will complete the registration process with Sinora Peretz.   Not on Friday. 
From there, they will go to:

  • The staff medical clinic where their vaccinations will be verified
  • The Cashier station where they will purchase their meal tickets, pay for their clerkships and housing
  • The Security office where they may arrange and pay 200 NIS for one-month subsidized parking if necessary
  • The staff laundry where they will receive their white coats
  • The medical library if necessary
  • Their room (must call Larry / 050-5737641 / if applicable)
  • Their designated medical department
