Third Year Clinical Clerkships

Clinical clerkships in MSIH’s main teaching hospitals expose students to diverse patients from southern Israel’s Bedouin and Ethiopian communities, as well as immigrants from the former Soviet Union, Africa, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East.  At the conclusion of each clerkship, a Global Health Day helps provide a global perspective to the clerkship.
