The Israeli Medical Association (IMA) has, since its establishment in 1912, been a leader in health policy, an advocate for physicians and patients, and the body responsible for the professional and ethical standards of the medical profession in Israel. We are proud that the majority of Israel’s physicians have elected to be members of our organization.

One of the most significant activities of the IMA is our World Fellowship (WF), instituted with the aim of involving doctors around the world with the medical profession in Israel and with their Israeli counterparts. The WF embodies the solidarity of physicians who share common values of support for the State of Israel and the Israeli medical profession.

We are determined to encourage the creation of ties and cultivate cooperation between physicians in Israel and their colleagues abroad. Among other goals, we hope to bring medical professionals and medical institutions worldwide in closer contact with Israel, its medical organizations and the IMA. We perceive our conference as the highlight of WF activities, for it not only allows physicians to become acquainted with the high standard of medicine in Israel but, more importantly, it provides an opportunity for physicians from different continents to come together, share thoughts and discuss common issues of Jewish and medical interest – all under the one roof of the IMA WF.

Last year physicians from 22 countries attended our international conference, at which President Shimon Peres was the special guest speaker.

The president stressed “the importance of a bond between Israeli physicians with physicians in the Diaspora as well as the importance of international humanitarian missions” and continued by emphasizing “I wish to declare my support for the World Fellowship and its goals”.

We invite you to be part of this unique event. Please take this opportunity to meet new colleagues, understand Israeli medicine, and show your support for Israel and the IMA. Make this a memorable experience.
