The Rabin Medical Exchange Fellows program selects top doctors, researchers and medical practitioners from hospitals and research centers from the Rabin Medical Center of Israel to conduct research and share their expertise. A fellow can be sponsored and named for $5k-$10k for two to four weeks and $35k for a one to two year fellowship. During his/her observership, Rabin Fellows will engage in educational projects to benefit healthcare, treatment and research at Israel’s premier medical center.

Since its inception in 2010, there have been over 60 Rabin Fellows funded for medical specialties, including cardiology, orthopedics, diabetes, internal medicine, gastroenterology, pulmonary medicine, oncology, robotic surgery and high-risk pregnancies at U.S. hospitals, including Weill Cornell Medical Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Duke University Medical School, Columbia University Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering, National Institute of Health, UC San Diego Medical Center, Boston Eye Group, Keck School of Medicine of USC, University of Maryland Medical Center.

The selection of doctors is based on the process used by the Fulbright Program. Reviews of each experience are made by the participating institutions, Rabin Medical Center and the American Friends of Rabin Medical Center.

"I see this extraordinary opportunity given to me by this wonderful organization to spend time in a leading gastroenterology center, a chance to expend my knowledge in gastroenterology in general, and in inflammatory bowel diseases in particular, to generate new contacts that hopefully will pave the path for future collaborations, and to bring added value to the RMC in the future."
