Mission and Goals
The mission of the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School is to train
doctors who, when graduate, will have acquired the knowledge, skills and
professional behavior that will enable them to provide humanistic care, practice
excellent clinical medicine and demonstrate competence in medical research. The
Medical School expects, therefore, its graduates to be able to integrate into
medical systems which combine clinical service with teaching and medical
research, and that they will be partners in development and management at the
institutional and national levels.
The aims of the clinical studies are to provide the students with medical
knowledge, clinical skills, ethical values in patient-doctor and doctor-society
relations, and personal academic integrity.
The amount of present-day knowledge is considerable. The study program cannot
provide all the existing knowledge and certainly not all the future knowledge.
Therefore, the study program is designed also to provide the skills for
individual, integrative and critical study.
