Overview of the Electives Program

Activity During Electives:

The participants take part in routine departmental activities, participate in supervised rounds, give patients bedside instructions, and attend seminars & conferences.

Due to hospital restrictions, practical hands-on training is limited. Students will have the opportunity to observe clinical activities. Theoretical lectures and clinical research are not a part of this program. 

Department work is carried out in Hebrew. Patient files and reports are in Hebrew.  Lab reports are generally in English; Hospitals/clinics staff will assist students with non-English-speaking patients whenever possible.

The participants' official status in this Program is that of non-matriculated Tel Aviv University students, with all the accompanying rights, duties and responsibilities equivalent to the medical students of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine on their elective rotations.

Additional Notes

Any inquiry before, during or after an Elective rotation must be done though the TAU’s Electives Program office only.
