 Creating Doctors with a Global Mind-Set: Ben-Gurion University Shows the Way

Learn how Ben-Gurion University of the Negev’s MSIH (Medical School for International Health) provides a unique curriculum in cross-cultural and international medicine - including studies in refugee and disaster medicine - and how each medical student undertakes a clinical rotation in one of the world’s medically under-served areas.

 Dr. A. Mark Clarfield, Director of the MSIH, former Head of the Division of Geriatrics in Israel's Ministry of Health in Jerusalem and the Sidonie Hecht Chair for Geriatrics at BGU, is a former Montrealer, who continues as an adjunct professor at McGill. He will tell the story of this remarkable program, the School’s global partnerships and the extraordinary experiences of its students.
