A successful conference for Israeli medical students

Last week we held a lovely conference for the Israeli medical students of the Moshal Scholarship Program.


We received a warm welcome from Shaare Zedek’s Medical Center’s CEO Professor Ofer Merin, who shared information about the ethical dilemmas that the medical team faces in the Trauma Unit. The hospital staff then gave us a tour of the ER during which we heard a lecture on innovation and research in the medical world.

The conference ended with a fascinating panel discussion and a questions and answer session, with an array of medical professionals who openly and honestly shared from their own experiences as medical students. A special thanks for participating in the panel goes out to:

  • Prof. Shlezinger Yechiel
  • Dr. Yishay Weill
  • Dr. Amir Orlev
  • Dr. Nir Weigert
  • Dr. Jennia Michaeli
  • Dr. Yael Lipschitz

The highlight of the event was our special guest, Dr. Karyn Moshal, who came all the way from London to meet with our students and share from her own rich experiences. Thank you, Karyn!

And of course, we shouldn’t forget those who worked hard behind the scene to make this great event succeed – Hila Shtinboim for her dedicated production and Akiva Holzer for handling the busy schedules and making all the effort to help out!
