The Azrieli Faculty of Medicine in the Galilee
The Bar-Ilan University Azrieli Faculty of Medicine is located in the northern part of Israel, the Galilee - in the beautiful and historic city of Safed. Founded in the year 2011, the Faculty currently offers masters and doctoral degrees as well as, of course, an accredited MD degree.
Two MD tracks are offered (in Hebrew):
- A three-year program for students returning from medical school programs abroad
- A four-year program for Israeli students who have already completed a BA/BS degree
Special focus is given to community medicine and preventive care, particularly, the needs of the residents of northern Israel (the Galilee and the Golan).
Students are assigned a mentor and learn via traditional frontal methods as well as the Flipped Classroom method and Team-Based and Case-Based Learning, to name a few. Teaching methods are taken very seriously at the Faculty.
International students (non-Hebrew speakers) are encouraged to apply for the advanced degree options (MSc and PhD) at the Faculty. At the Faculty, special focus is given to Translational Research.
The recently renovated modern campus includes an auditorium, cafeteria, fully equipped classrooms, a comfortable library, simulation rooms, lounges, an administrative wing and student union. Modern laboratories are staffed by researchers who also instruct the students in their pre-clinical studies, as well as, of course, students pursuing advanced degrees.
