The Medical School for International Health is a four year, North American-style medical school that incorporates global health coursework into all four years of the medical school curriculum. The mission of the Medical School for International Health (MSIH) is to address the need for medical education that focuses on the interface between global health and community and preventive medicine. The first three years of instruction take place in Israel, beginning with the full-year Introduction to Global Health. Fourth-year clinical electives take place at Columbia University Medical Center, its affiliated hospitals, and other locations in North America. Fourth-year students take an eight-week clerkship with an underserved community at approved sites throughout the world. Students are prepared to take the USMLE Steps 1 and 2, and complete residencies in the United States and Canada. The Ben-Gurion Global Health Scholarship will give one excellent student the chance to pursue their MD with a focus on global health tuition-free, for the four years of the MSIH M.D. program. Applicants will be evaluated for this merit scholarship by a committee of world leaders in global health and medicine. Decisions will be based on the applicant’s likely success in building a career at the intersection of medicine and global health. To be considered for the BGGH Scholarship, submit a completed admissions application by January 8, 2018.
