Student Life


“In Beer-Sheva, I’ve created a home; at MSIH, I have a life in medical school. I’m doing what I love, surrounded by people who care.”
Chelsea Powell, class of 2019, MSIH First-Year Blogger

The Medical School for International Health (MSIH) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) attracts high-achieving, ambitious people. In our close-knit community, students spend much of their time in the classroom, hospital and library, as well as working with faculty. But there’s more to medical school than academics, and MSIH offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to earn your degree while immersing yourself in the rich culture of Israel.

If you choose to study with us, you’ll make a home in the vibrant city of Beer-Sheva, explore the beautiful Negev desert, engage in campus and community activities, and build lasting friendships.
