Since its inception, MSIH has had a relationship with Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. BGU and MSIH also have relationships with other medical schools throughout the world, including in North America and, of course, Israel.

The diversity of MSIH’s relationships benefits you as a student. You will spend three years studying in Israel, take fourth-year electives at prestigious medical centers in the United States or Canada, and complete an eight-week global health clerkship at one of several approved resource-deprived sites around the world.

This broad international experience helps prepare you for a meaningful medical career. Graduates of MSIH enjoy high match rates parallel to those of students at top medical schools in the U.S. (96% in 2021). An M.D. from MSIH offers a clear path to U.S. residency.
