SOLIDARITY MISSION IN ISRAEL

FEBRUARY 11 - 15, 2024

Help make a tangible difference in Israel. Join APF for the opportunity to provide immediate relief to the land and the people of Israel.

By participating in this Mission, you will not only deepen your appreciation for Israel’s current challenges—and the invincible spirit of the Israeli people—but you will have an opportunity to lend your hands and heart to our brothers and sisters during this uniquely challenging time.

About the Program

Who We are

The American Healthcare Professionals and Friends for Medicine in Israel (APF), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization of physicians and healthcare professionals, is committed to advancing the state of medical education, research, and care in Israel by assisting in the training of young Israeli physicians and healthcare professionals, and in fostering ties between the North American and Israel’s healthcare communities.

Who It’s For

The solidarity mission is aimed at a diverse audience that is interested in understanding and supporting the humanitarian efforts being implemented to restore the security and safety of Israeli society, including from all medical professions (acute care, trauma care, public health, care for populations with disabilities, rehabilitation, and more), humanitarian and aid organizations, political leaders and influencers, academic professions, veterans and military personnel, business leaders and entrepreneurs. People from all faiths are welcome to join the mission.

What to Expect

Participants will engage in a comprehensive and insightful program, including visits to key medical and rehabilitation centers, where delegates will learn about treating war casualties, rehabilitation practices, and the challenges medical professionals face in conflict zones. A unique aspect will be understanding the secondary traumatization of medical teams and exploring military response strategies, including medical combat training and Special Search & Rescue operations. The program also includes hands-on experiences, such as volunteering on agricultural farms and participating in community services, directly contributing to local efforts. Additionally, educational sessions on forensic medicine during war and visits to strategic operation centers will deepen the understanding of the complexities of war-affected areas. The mission concludes with a culturally enriching visit to Jerusalem, offering a reflective end to this deeply engaging experience. The program will be delivered in English and medical professionals will be eligible for CME credits

American Healthcare Professionals and Friends for Medicine in Israel (APF)

Advancing Innovation

The American Healthcare Professionals and Friends for Medicine in Israel (APF) is an organization of healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring Israel’s emergency preparedness and enabling Israeli healthcare providers to train in cutting-edge medicine in the U.S. before taking leadership positions in Israeli medical institutions.

Shaping Future Leaders

Since 1951 APF has sponsored more than 1,500 Fellows to help train Israeli physicians in specialty care. From cutting-edge surgical techniques to advanced diagnostic tools to the establishment of new community health clinics, APF is proud to play an integral and critical role in the healthcare of the people of Israel.

Leveraging Partnerships

Because APF is not affiliated with any particular medical institution in Israel, we are able to provide assistance to a wide array of medical facilities and programs in Israel. APF has excellent relations with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Medical Corps of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Enhancing Education

APF provides the opportunity for North American healthcare professionals to receive advanced training in disaster management. APF is proud to offer travel grants and awards to Israeli physicians and other healthcare professionals to facilitate their attendance at international meetings and conferences.
