Introducing two new study tracks- Shaping future doctors

 

Bioengineering AND Medicine: Shaping future doctors

The field of Bioengineering studies human physiology and health by the use of methods from the field of engineering and from the exact sciences. One of the outcomes is the design of technologies and methods of diagnosis and treatments of patients. This clinical reliance on new engineering technologies in Medicine, and the need for physicians with a deep understanding of technology, have brought the two disciplines closer than ever over the recent years, raising the need for a combined training framework.

We are therefore delighted to announce the launching of a prestigious program for outstanding applicants, which will train them in Bioengineering and Medicine:

  • The first 3 years are dedicated to studying bioengineering. Students will study, in parallel, a few core courses required for their future studies in Medicine.
  • The following 4 years are in the School of Medicine (2 pre-clinical years, followed by 2 clinical years).
    The students are expected to complete their final bioengineering project during the preclinical years. Upon completion of the project, the students will receive a Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering (BSc).
    Upon completion of 4 years in the School of Medicine, the students will receive their MD degree.

Altogether, the program is 7 years long, followed by a clinical internship.

Program coordinators:

Prof. Uri Nevo – Department of Bioengineering, Faculty of Engineering - nevouri@tauex.tau.ac.il

Dr. Sharon Weiss – Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine - lahavsha@tauex.tau.ac.il

 

 

Computer Science-Life Sciences Bioinformatics Joint Program AND Medicine: shaping future doctors

Physicians increasingly rely on and use various technologies as part of clinical practice and research. Bioinformatics combines biology, computer science, and data science to develop and apply methods for analyzing vast clinical datasets and thereby generate insights of potential clinical relevance.

We are therefore delighted to announce the launching of a prestigious program for outstanding applicants, which will train them in Bioinformatics and Medicine:

  • The first 3 years are dedicated to studying Computer Science, Life Sciences, and Bioinformatics, as part of the joint Computer Science/Life Science Bioinformatics program. Upon completion, the student will receive a Bachelor’s degree (BSc), with a combined major in Computer Science and Life Sciences with specialization in Bioinformatics.
  • The following 4 years are in the School of Medicine (2 pre-clinical years, followed by 2 clinical years). Upon completion the students receive their MD degree.

Altogether the program is 7 years long, followed by clinical internships.

Program coordinators:

Prof. Irit Gat-Viks – Faculty of Life Sciences - iritgv@tauex.tau.ac.il

Prof. Elhanan Borenstein – School of Computer Science and Faculty of Medicine - elbo@tauex.tau.ac.il

Dr. Sharon Weiss – Faculty of Medicine - lahavsha@tauex.tau.ac.il
