Public Health in Israel
Sponsor: Northwestern University Office of International Program Development (IPD), in partnership with Tel Aviv University
Location: Tel Aviv, Israel
This new Northwestern IPD program exposes students to the distinctive nationalized and high quality medical healthcare system that places Israelis among the healthiest people in the world, as well as the delivery of medical relief in disaster situations, an activity for which Israel is internationally recognized. Israel’s expertise in the delivery of healthcare to immigrant and minority populations will be also be a focal point of the program, and students will learn about the policies and barriers to healthcare delivery to culturally and economically diverse populations. Field trips to historical and archaeological sites, kibbutzim, medical institutions, research facilities, and high-tech enterprises will further complement class lectures and readings, including the Red Cross, the Israeli EMS, the National Center for Trauma & Emergency Medicine Research, and the National Simulation Center where students get to role-play an emergency scenario.
