Welcome from the Dean

Shimon Marom

A guiding principle of the Technion Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, stemming from its origins within a technological institute, has been to develop new medical technologies to improve health care by utilizing an interdisciplinary approach. Since its founding, this innovative thinking has allowed students of the Technion Faculty of Medicine to stand at the frontline in medical research and patient care. An outgrowth of this philosophy has been the creation of the Technion International Medical Student Exchange Center.

Exposure to a wide range of ideas is a fundamental part of your medical education. The mission of the Technion International Medical Student Exchange Center is to promote medical education and professionalism and appreciate different social and cultural customs. An opportunity with Intech-Med will provide you with important means to measure yourself against global peers, build networks, and facilitate a vital intellectual cross-fertilization. Exposure to such diversity will help you relate better to your future patients.

Thank you for your interest in the Technion-Faculty of Medicine’s Intech-Med Center. We look forward to greeting you in Haifa.
