Student Birthright Israel Trips

APF considers students vital to ensuring future generations of leadership, for both APF and the Jewish community at large. Through our Birthright Israel Trips, medical, nursing and other students in healthcare fields receive the opportunity to experience Israel as tourists while learning about the practice of medicine in Israel. This life-changing trip is designed specifically for those studying in medical professions

Students see Israel stretching from the Lebanese and Syrian borders to the Negev and the Dead Sea. They visit the mystic city of Safed, hike the mountains of Galilee, kayak the headwaters of the Jordan River, swim in Kinneret…and that’s just on the first of 10 days! It gets busier and better once they reach Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the Negev. The only things they won’t do are sleep or be bored.

“The APF Birthright Israel experience was an excellent way to combine the life-altering Birthright trip with my interest in expanding my medical perspectives.  It was an opportunity to have fun while learning about my Jewish heritage and Israel.  Just as importantly, it was a way to enjoy the company of other medical students who share similar interests, and form unique and lasting connections with colleagues from both the United States and Israel.” – David Rahimian, Past Participant

Specifically Designed for Medical Students

What differentiates APF’s trip from all the others is the opportunity for medical students to raise their awareness about medical issues in Israel. Our students spend time and receive training at cutting-edge IDF and civilian medical facilities that are off-limits to “regular” tourists!
