Faculty of Dentistry

The Faculty of Dentistry offers challenges to young people interested in an in-depth studies in bio-medical profession, along with technical proficiency, as well as challenges in research, teaching and clinical service.

At the end of three years of study, the degree of "Bachelor of Medical Sciences" (B.Med.Sc) is awarded and after the end of five years of studies, the degree "Doctor of Dentistry" is awarded.

In dentistry there are a number of fields in which clinical specialization can be acquired.

Dentistry is a dynamic profession that provides work opportunities both in private and public sectors, while providing great self-fulfillment.

Those who choose the dental faculty can sleep peacefully. This Faculty has one of the highest percentages of passing the licensing exams in Israel (Stage 1 and Stage 2) compared to other universities abroad.

The Faculty has rich budgets, innovative equipment and a new complex of clinics and buildings.

High level of instruction, equipment and academic chairs that provide theoretical material according to the American syllabus, as well as uncompromising practical requirements, not only prepare the student studying dentistry for success in passing the licensing test, but also provide him with skills that will ensure his success in the private sector.

Unlike students in general medicine, students at the dental faculty are "thrown into deep water." As early as the first year, students are required to be able to do precise work with their hands during practical lessons.

Due to the demand and complexity of the profession, a small number of students are admitted to this faculty, but upon admission, you will be counted as the elite of the group.

Beginning from the third year, the student is integrated into afternoon clinics and in fact begins a practical work treating real patients.

Continuous cooperation with dental faculties in the US, Romania, Russia, France and the Czech Republic gives students exposure to various techniques and "thinking outside the box".

This course focuses on implants, facial reconstruction, microsurgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery, which contributes to acceptance in Israel for further specialization in oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, endodontics and more.

At the end of the fifth year students will sit for theoretical exams in all courses, which examine the material studied throughout the clinical years. In addition to these exams and accompanying clinical requirements, the students will also do practical tests in some of the courses, in order to assess their professional abilities.

Faculty of Medicine

Following the training of dozens of Israeli graduates who are integrated in the various departments in hospitals in Israel, the United States, Germany, England, etc., it is possible to determine that the Faculty of General Medicine at the university has the winning formula for preparing the students for passing the national licensing examinations and integrating them into the hospital system.

The syllabus of the degree is on the level of the syllabus used in the US universities.

The basic medical sciences: biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, pathology, sociology, psychology, etc. are studied according to body systems and human diseases. The student is required to develop a sense of interaction between the different sciences, to acquire and present a capacity for problem solving and the ability to apply the material studied.

The first three years (pre-clinical) are characterized by courses and theoretical seminars through which the student enters the world of exact sciences and medicine.

These are considered to be very difficult and intensive years, which include extensive study material and tests on a daily basis. Most of the students in these years spend many hours in learning at the university library or at home.

From the end of the second year until the end of studies for the degree, the university requires three weeks of stay in Israeli hospitals during each summer vacation in July-August, based on the understanding that early exposure of the student to the departments and doctors in Israel will be beneficial for him during the internship year in Israel.

The last three years of the degree (clinical years) are characterized by rounds in hospitals and learning about the practical substance of a doctor’s work in the department. Alongside this, these years also include a great amount of theoretical learning material.

During these years the student is expected to undergo rounds in departments of internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, gynecology, psychiatry, family medicine, and short specializations in surgical and internal departments. During the sixth year, the students are expected to assume some of the positions of the intern, with limited freedom of action.

During the course of studies the student undergoes many experiences: he participates in the life of the departments, taking an active part in surgeries, and academic activities outside the school hours.

Most of the students begin writing their thesis in the fourth year under personal supervision of a mentor (a senior lecturer in the field in which the student chose to write and research).

In preparation for the sixth and final year, the lecturers invest a lot of time in preparing for the Israeli licensing test.
