At the end of each third year core clinical clerkship at MSIH, students benefit from a Global Health Day where the topic of their clerkship is placed in an international perspective.

This year, for the first time, the Surgery Global Health day was organized and run by an MSIH alumna, Dr. Falyne Shapiro.

Dr. Shapiro graduated from MSIH in 2009. After residency in Internal Medicine at Wilmington, North Carolina she came back to Israel with her husband in 2014.

Now a Critical Care Fellow at Assaf Ha-Rofeh hospital in Central Israel, Falyne agreed to come back to her alma mater to run the Surgery Global Health day.

“It was a really strange feeling,” she said. “Only 10 years ago I was sitting in those 6th floor classrooms. Now I’m teaching to the next generation of MSIH students and it’s really exciting to give back and teach.”
