Please join members of our New York based Admissions team as we provide information on the Medical School for International Health. The MSIH is a four year, North American-style medical school that incorporates global health coursework into all four years of the medical school curriculum. The MSIH is an English-language track in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and is affiliated with Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons. 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, as well as other affiliated hospital locations in North America including Mt. Sinai, the University of Pennsylvania, Hofstra-LIJ and the University of Kentucky. There is a New York based electives coordinator who supports students who seek electives at other institutions as well. 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 2016 residency match rate was 95%.
