Israel’s health care and its advantages for patients from the CIS
Israel’s health care system is considered to be one of the most advanced in the world. Israeli doctors have the latest medical equipment and use the most advanced medical technologies. Finally, Israel has a very high level of training. Even after having acquired the medical profession the specialists constantly upgrade their skills at the best medical centres in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
Doctors’ training in Israel lasts between 4.5 years (for specialists in family medicine and psychiatry) to 6 years (surgery). It follows graduation from a school of medicine. Having finished her/his studies at the medical faculty of one of the four universities (6 years ), and an internship (1 year), the physician chooses to specialise in one of the medical skills. Young doctors have to go through training at one of the hospital departments and pass two exams before they receive the title of a senior doctor. At the next stage they often undergo additional two-year training specialising in a particular field at medical centres in the United States, Canada or Europe.
For example, a specialist in gynecology may undertake additional training in departments of artificial insemination, a specialist in urology would specialise in pediatric urology, an oncologist would learn the methods of chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
The Israeli doctor becomes independent after a period of training which lasts between 13.5 to 15 years. Then he can start work at one of the hospitals or clinics and embark on private practice. The longest training period is in the field of orthopedics.
Today, the Israeli health care system comprises about 20,000 physicians in various areas. 12.5 thousand doctors are specialists while the remaining are general practice doctors. The system is based on a continuous learning process, and this is achieved by periodic certifications, conferences and courses. Experienced doctors in Israel enjoy a high income, their status in the society is very high, they are considered to be the national treasure. Some of them are often invited as consultants by other developed countries.
