This year, 704 medical students in Israel completed their studies and are scheduled to begin their internships in the coming year.
Israel’s Ministry of Health recently published information detailing the internship choices and preferences of medical students who have completed their medical studies. With 67 medical school graduates wanting to do their internships at Rambam Health Care Campus, the largest hospital in Northern Israel, the hospital is tied for third place with Kfar Saba’s Meir Medical Center.
Another medical facility in Haifa, Carmel Medical Center, was in fourth place, and the two Haifa-based hospitals placed higher among the interns than most other leading institutions in the center of the country. Taking first and second places were Petah Tikva’s Rabin Medical Center (Beilinson) and Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov).
Dr. Eyal Braun, Director of Rambam’s Department of Internal Medicine H and Coordinator of the hospital’s Internship Program notes, “This is a great achievement that indicates the significant investment of the hospital’s departments in its interns, and signifies the great demand for a medical career in the hospital among the younger generation of doctors and medical students,” adding that “Rambam continues to be at the forefront of the education and training of the younger generation of medical students in Israel.”
