21.6.2018: The Israeli Medical Association World Fellowship Scholarship Ceremony

This year 15 scholarships were awarded to outstanding Israeli physicians who are going to or have already began fellowship programs around the world. The Israeli Medical Association World Fellowship hosted a scholarship ceremony attended by IMA leadership, grantees and their families and representatives from other hospitals and organizations who have donated funds. The scholarships, in the amount of 16,000 NIS each, were funded by the Israeli Medical Association, the Organization of Clalit physicians, the Organization of State Employee Physicians, Rambam Medical Center, Sheba Medical Center, the Sheba Medical Center Physicians’ Committee, Tel Aviv Medical Center and the Australasian Jewish Medical Federation.

 

The World Fellowship Grants Committee convened to evaluate prospective candidates. There was a plethora, close to 85, of exceptionally qualified applicants and the committee members, comprised of Dr. Zeev Feldman, Dr. Esther Barchilon, Dr. Miriam Katz and Dr. Boris Isikowitz took great care in identifying the most suitable candidates. After much deliberation scholarships were granted to 15 doctors who have been accepted to fellowship positions worldwide. These physicians return to Israel and share their professional knowledge and what’s more they serve as emissaries of the State of Israel while abroad.

 

The grants presented in memory of deceased physicians, add another dimension to an already meaningful tradition. Invited speakers eulogize the physicians and loved ones are invited to attend.
