Admission Open!! INTERNATIONAL MASTER OF PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAM - The Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine

The Hebrew University-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine is proud of its overseas students who since 1970 have made the International Master of Public Health (IMPH) Program a most rewarding and successful venture. More than 850 students from 96 countries across the globe have participated in this unique experience.
 Our students' wide range of cultural backgrounds and work experiences coupled with our demanding curriculum create an environment which is at once scientifically challenging and culturally stimulating. Personal contacts with our alumni and news of their impressive contributions to their countries’ health is a continuing source of pride and pleasure. The IMPH student body comprises physicians, nurses, other health professionals, economists, social scientists and those interested in public health from other disciplines. Many of our graduates return home at the completion of their training to occupy leadership positions in the health care systems of their communities and countries.

Most students come from 'developing' regions of the world, but the program also welcomes students from the north, and our alumni include graduates from Western Europe, the USA and Canada. Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation (MASHAV) has been a vital element in the development and continuation of this unique program since its establishment. A limited number of scholarships are provided annually by MASHAV, the Pears Foundation, British Friends of Hebrew University, American Friends of Hebrew University, Hadassah Medical Organization and other donors for selected candidates from lower-income developing regions, countries in transition and small-island-countries. Israel is known to be a welcoming society and along with providing you with public health knowledge and skills, we will be happy to show you many of the treasures of Israel and its capital city, Jerusalem. Surrounded by terraced slopes and pine-forested hills west of central Jerusalem, our campus lies next to the quiet, picturesque village of Ein Kerem. Students can wander along flower-lined paths, interspersed with vines and olive trees and watch artists at work. Quaint shops, restaurants and galleries dot the landscape. On campus, one of the first sights to greet newcomers is the magnificent set of stained glass windows created by Marc Chagall. Join us and become part of our world-wide family devoted to the advancement of public health practices, research, and teaching.
