Over 10,000 Palestinian children received medical treatment in Israeli hospitals that was unavailable in the Palestinian Authority.

Training Doctors

 Project Aim

Due to limited opportunities for medical residencies and fellowships in Palestinian hospitals, this project aims to strengthen the capacities of the Palestinian healthcare system by providing advanced training opportunities for Palestinian doctors and medical personnel in Israeli hospitals. The project also fosters people-to-people relations between Israeli and Palestinian medical personnel who share a common language of medical professionalism and ethics.

 How It Works

Based on the training needs of the Palestinian healthcare system, medical trainees participate in residencies and fellowships in Israel's leading hospitals for up to five years. Trainees live in Israel and learn Hebrew, becoming part of the medical team at the hospital at which they are placed. Upon completion of training, the doctors return to Palestinian hospitals, significantly increasing the capacities of the Palestinian healthcare system. The project generates concrete cross-border cooperation and knowledge exchange, as well as deep-rooted professional and personal relations.

Statistics: Over 180 Palestinian medical personnel have been trained in Israeli hospitals through this program.
