REQUIRED DOCUMENTS FOR SPECIALTY RECOGNITION (PHYSICIANS)
The Scientific Council of the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) will be joining us at the 2023 MedEx (read more about the IMA here). They will be present to introduce potential physician Olim to the Israeli medical system and provide detailed and technical information about the process of working in Israel. Additionally and critically, they will be assisting physicians with the process of having their medical specialty recognized in Israel, before they make Aliyah.
