MSIH is housed at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU). Located on the edge of the stunning Negev desert, with easy access to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Beer-Sheva has become a major center for research and innovation. Beer-Sheva is Israel’s fourth-largest metropolis and it is a place where the past and future converge.
BGU is consistently voted the most popular campus among students in Israel. Once on campus, you’ll join our dynamic, welcoming university community. As MSIH student Jonathan Sidlow remarks, “The bustle of many students hightailing it to class on their motorized bikes and scooters creates a frenetic buzz and turbulence closely resembling the energy of Beer-Sheva as a city.” The university is also famous for its students’ commitment to community engagement and service. BGU has modern 21st-century facilities and a dynamic campus life, as well as one of the most diverse student bodies in Israel.
MSIH students are part of a close-knit community in which 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. For MSIH students, BGU is the center of student life, connecting people from all backgrounds and areas of study. In addition to convenient facilities and restaurants, the campus is host to an exciting array of events, performances and student organizations. MSIH’s student organizations are a key component of its close, supportive community. These groups are an excellent way to meet people, explore your surroundings and gain valuable career and life experience. Life at BGU is truly immersive for students.
While some students have the opportunity to visit campus prior to applying, many do not. If you want to get a glimpse of campus, we have a video which may give you a sense of MSIH campus life!
