In an effort to address the shortage of medical professionals in Israel, the Ministry of Health has made a request to Israeli universities to enroll foreign medical students who had to interrupt their studies abroad to join the reservist service under agenda number 8. The ministry estimates that there are approximately 200 foreign university students who may lose a year of study due to the academic year abroad beginning on time, while in Israel the start of studies was delayed until the end of December because of the war.
To assist these students, the ministry has assured that it will provide assistance to universities and coordinate with hospitals to provide places for practical training. This move is expected to help fill gaps in Israel’s healthcare system and ensure that patients receive high-quality care from qualified medical professionals.
In addition, the ministry has also announced plans for a range of skill enhancement programs and virtual reality experiences aimed at helping students enhance their skills in various areas related to computer science and gaming. These initiatives are designed to help students develop new skills and stay up-to-date with emerging technologies in these fields.
