"Jerusalem: The city which miraculously transforms man into pilgrim; no one can enter it and go away unchanged" - Nobel Prize Laureate Elie Weisel
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 ancient, yet modern, capital city of Jerusalem.
The IMPH Program offers a wide range of social and cultural activities that serve to bond and integrate the students and introduce them to the historical and modern host country of Israel.
Surrounded by terraced slopes and pine-forested hills in the southwest corner of 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.
The teachers and staff of the IMPH will do their utmost to make you feel at home while you undertake this demanding, yet very rewarding curriculum of study.
Comfortable on-campus dormitory facilities are provided for scholarship students and can be rented by non-scholarship students based on availability. Apartments can also be rented in close proximity of the campus. No pets are allowed, and we do not provide couple housing.
