Research Opportunities

Research Opportunities

Although research projects are not mandatory for MSIH students, you will be encouraged to contribute to current scientific medical research. For those who wish to partake, we offer a team to assist you with the planning, execution, analysis and publication of your studies. Students also have access to the greater BGU community, which is engaged in researching a broad range of topics — including geopolitics, pollution and water management, health service management, personal well-being, and even robotics and cybersecurity.

Flexible Research Options

Students will have the opportunity to engage in research according to their interests. Your work may take the form of short-term or single case studies, or you may choose to extend your study of an issue through comparative or cross-cultural efforts. Methodologies may be qualitative, quantitative or both. Potential topics include:

  • Health equity
  • Trauma and injury
  • Child care
  • Obesity
  • Bioethics
  • Infectious diseases
  • Basic science

Many MSIH students have published articles in respected medical journals, including BMJ Case Reports and the Journal of Travel Medicine.

Expert Guidance and Resources

Our research assistance team is led by Dr. Odeya Cohen, head of the master’s program in the BGU Department of Emergency Medicine and a researcher in the PREPARED Center for Emergency Response Research. Dr. Cohen lectures on scientific writing, research projects and bioethics in BGU’s departments of Nursing and Emergency Medicine.

Students will also enjoy close proximity to the Advanced Technologies Park, which was developed in partnership with BGU, the Municipality of Beer-Sheva and KUD International LLC to promote research, development and commercialization of cutting-edge technology.
