Voyage to Medicine is a unique program that combines challenging academic studies with first-hand views and experiences in one of Israel’s finest hospitals, under the guidance of professional and practiced physicians in the field. The program aims to build a bridge between young persons from other countries and the Israeli health system in the world of hospital medical activity.
Two themes are incorporated into this program: the Circle of Life and the Hospital of the Future, the two main challenges in medicine worldwide.
While observing the Circle of Life our students will be exposed to the main junctions of a person's life span: from pregnancy and birth, through childhood and adulthood, and finally, old age and "end of life". They will be exposed to health and sickness, innovative abilities to provide care, and patient-doctor communication.
Hospital of the Future will provide students with a review of hospital needs in 2050. They will be exposed to worldwide health systems in other countries: Germany, Japan, Australia, and Scandinavia, from the perspective of physicians, architects, managers, and the public, about challenges, preferences, and dilemmas. The students will be invited to share their own ideas along with the perspective of their family members and friends and to offer recommendations that could be implemented in future hospital strategies: what should patient care look like in the future, and how can we use innovative tools to improve care and health?
