Thanks to APF grants, these gifted doctors come to the U.S. and Canada and receive advanced training and conduct research that’s not available back home. When APF Fellows return, they enrich Israel’s reservoir of medical knowledge, and many go on to become leaders in their fields, often as the only doctors with their particular skill set in the country or their geographic area.
Sponsoring a Fellow
APF members sponsor Israeli physician Fellows as they spend one to two years in major academic medical centers across the U.S. and Canada, learning advanced clinical and research techniques with the goal of bringing these new skills to medically underserved areas throughout Israel.
Since 1951, APF has sponsored more than 1,500 Fellows, many of whom have gone on to become hospital presidents, department chairs and other medical leaders across Israel.
Your support today helps ensures that we have strong, skilled and competent leaders who will drive Israel’s healthcare forward.
