Clinical studies are conducted in 15 hospitals/medical centers whose departments are affiliated with the medical school. These hospitals include: eight general hospitals, one rehabilitation center, five psychiatric hospitals, and one community mental health center. The hospitals serve a population of approximately two million, including 6,000 hospital beds. The Faculty of Medicine is affiliated with departments in these hospitals for teaching purposes, following rigorous investigation of staff and facilities. The broad spectrum of ethnic origins, cultural backgrounds and socio-economic levels of the populations served by these hospitals provides students with a wealth and variety of clinical material. Our faculty members are devoted to providing advanced care to their patients and mentoring future doctors.
Our affiliated hospitals and clinics include Chaim Sheba Medical Center, a literal "hospital city" and the largest health center in the Middle East. We also partner with several other large hospitals, such as Meir Medical Center which treats the Israeli Olympic team and Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov) that offers a large-scale emergency response Trauma Center. Students and researchers have access to a number of community clinics and mental health centers like the calming Shalvata Mental Health Center located in the countryside. Our nursing, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy students also benefit from collaborations with many rehabilitation centers. Read more about our affiliated clinical sites below.
