B.Sc in Digital Medical Technologies

The B.Sc in Digital Medical Technologies Program


Two years ago, the Israeli government launched a national program aimed at placing the field of Digital Health as one of the country's economic growth engine. The program expected to address 3 main needs: 

  1. The need to increase collaboration between the digital health industry, the health system, and the Israel academia, while promoting Israel's health system's abilities. 
  2. The need to increase collaboration between the Israeli digital health industry and the health system corporations, and main international investment funds, while strengthening the Israeli ecosystem.
  3. The need to efficiently analyze the growing available data and create an interface between the various existing databases, research and commercial companies. 

The registration to the B.Sc. in Digital Medical Technologies is now open. 
Due to the very unique character of the degree, a limited number of students will be selected. 
Graduates are expected to enter the industry as medical information analysts or will qualify with unique and highly sought-after knowledge that will enable them to pursue their studies toward a four-year M.D in Medicine program in Israel and abroad.  


Two types of graduates are expected to emerge out of the program: Analysts in the field of medical information and medical science, which after 3 years of studies will be able to practice this profession in hospitals and HMOs.
