About Us

The Medical School for International Health (MSIH) at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) is a four year, North-American style medical school that incorporates global health components into all years of the core M.D. curriculum. We are an English language program that prepares students for a career that goes far beyond the hospital or private clinic. Graduates gain the training necessary to practice medicine while meeting the challenges of global health — and make a real impact.


With classes entirely in English, the M.D. program is taught by experienced physicians with personal involvement in global health. Together, we are dedicated to preparing a new generation of doctors who have a comprehensive view of health around the world — whether they practice medicine locally or internationally.


Exciting Path to Residency

With three years of study and training in Israel, fourth-year electives in North America and an eight-week global health clerkship at one of our sites around the world, our M.D. program is designed to provide an exciting path to residency in the United States, Canada and beyond. Match rates for MSIH graduates parallel match rates of top medical programs in the U.S., with 93% of students matching with one of their top residency choices over the past decade.


Serving Both Domestic and International Communities

Since the program’s inception 20+ years ago, over 550 MSIH graduates have taken positions as physicians in the U.S., Canada and Israel — with others practicing around the world.
