Welcome from the Dean
The Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University is the largest health and medical sciences faculty in Israel. Our community of researchers, students, physicians, scientists, and clinicians cover the full spectrum of cutting-edge health and biomedical sciences.
Our primary goal is to continuously connect innovative advances in medical care with the needs of our patients. Our vision combines excellence and innovation in teaching and research with compassion and outstanding care for the individual.
The Faculty of Medicine is comprised of approximately 2,000 faculty members engaged in teaching and research on the Tel Aviv University campus in Ramat Aviv and in affiliated departments in major medical centers, psychiatric hospitals, rehabilitation centers and community clinics in the greater Tel Aviv area.
Our diverse educational and training programs are delivered by academic staff who are experts in their fields, offering degrees in medical sciences, clinical medicine, dental medicine, communication disorders, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and public health. Excellence in research combined with clinical work provides trainees with an exceptional and solid foundation in both areas.
We integrate our basic science and translational and clinical science through partnerships between faculty on campus and at the hospitals. This integration promotes ongoing innovation, which is further augmented by international collaborations.
The key to our success is the ability to translate our research into effective cures and treatments. We believe that bringing together the best and brightest minds – faculty, research associates, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students at the Faculty of Medicine - will expedite medical breakthroughs.
The Faculty of Medicine is comprised of:
- The School of Medicine: three programs for M.D. degree: Six-Year Program and Four-Year Program for Israeli students; NY/American Program for American and Canadian students.
- The School of Health Professions - B.A., M.Sc., Ph.D. in Nursing, Occupational Health, Physical Therapy, Communication Disorders
- The School of Dental Medicine - D.M.D. degree
- The School of Public Health - M.P.H. degree
- The Graduate School - M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees
- The Academic Center for Continuing Medical Education for physicians
TAU’s Faculty of Medicine also offers a combined degree in Medical Sciences and Life Sciences, MD and Engineering, and MD and Computer Science/Bioinformatics.
Looking towards the future, we are working to transform and change our medical school curriculum – our campaign to do so is TransforMED 2030 – to ensure that we train MDs and other health professionals with the most advanced training and teaching tools. We plan to integrate climate change, sustainability, integrative medicine, healthy aging and more into our already outstanding teaching and research programs.
Please join me in celebrating the Faculty of Medicine, as together – a community of over 7,000 - we work towards prevention of disease, improving quality of life and creating a better world for future generations, with care and compassion.
