MSIH Founding Faculty Member Mick Alkan: Israel’s Most Widely Traveled Physician?


Mick Alkan, Professor Emeritus and founding faculty member of MSIH, is probably Israel’s most widely traveled physician. In his long career, he has participated in medical mercy missions throughout the world, from Cambodian refugees in Thailand to a field hospital in Macedonia, from Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, to the 2004 tsunami in the Far East, from the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, to African refugees traversing Serbia. Alkan, a world authority on AIDS, has taught medicine in rural Kenya, Ecuador, Nepal, and Kyrgyzstan.
