Physician Exchange Program

Important Information

​​​​​​​The diploma, license and board certification must be translated to Hebrew by an official notary.

Interested in coming to Israel for a short period of time to experience Israeli medicine on the ground?

The Israeli Medical Association (IMA) World Fellowship’s Physicians’ Exchange Program enables post-graduate physicians abroad to experience Israeli medicine for a few weeks/months. This elective program offers prospective participants the opportunity to combine the pleasure of a visit to Israel with a rewarding professional experience. The IMA World Fellowship assists the participant in obtaining a limited and temporary license to practice medicine under supervision in a recognized institution. Approval is generally granted for a minimum period of one month, up to a maximum of one year. Applications for the elective program should be sent to the IMA World Fellowship office, three months prior to the desired date of commencement.

Participation in the program is voluntary and not remunerative. Instructions are in Hebrew and English (other languages may be possible upon request). Requirements of attendance and performance will be established by the head of the medical service who invited the participants. The attendants will be instructed by qualified Israeli registered physicians, and will be working under their direct supervision. The participant may pursue his/her studies and work within the accepted bounds of the medical discipline/department for which the approval was granted. In some hospitals, board and lodging are available free of charge or available for a minimal fee. All professional equipment will be provided, except for a stethoscope.

To apply, submit two copies of the following documents to the Israeli Medical Association:
 

  • Application form
  • Copy of diploma
  • Up-to-date copy of license/registration to practice medicine in the country in which the physician currently resides
  • Copy of board certification in the country in which the physician currently resides
  • Letter of good standing
  • Copy of passport​


The diploma, license and board certification must be translated to Hebrew by an official notary.
