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.

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. 

Requirements for admission

To be eligible for the IMPH Program you must hold an academic degree (BA/BSc, MA/MSc, MD) in medicine, dentistry, nursing, another allied health field, or in one of the basic biological or social sciences relevant to health from a recognized university. Diploma/Advanced Diploma degrees are not recognized as academic degrees by Hebrew University.

Applicants who hold only a bachelor’s degree must have obtained an overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 75% in their undergraduate studies.

Practical experience in public health is taken into account as well as academic achievement. Students must have a command of basic computing skills and a high level of English.

Academic Year: October – September

The academic year is divided into two semesters and a summer session. The first semester begins in October and ends in January-February, and the second semester ends in June. Exact start and end dates vary from year to year.

The summer session (July – September) is primarily devoted to work on the thesis/master paper (including field work if necessary).

Course examinations are held in February and July, and the oral thesis/master paper defense in September, prior to graduation.

Professional site-visits, social outings, cultural events, and lectures on current affairs and the history of the region take place throughout the year. Students join in the celebration of local religious festivals. Informal home visits facilitate contact with faculty members and other Israelis.

Comfortable on-campus housing is provided for scholarship students and shared with other students in the program. Non-scholarship students can rent in these apartments (based on availability). Apartments can also be rented in close proximity to campus.

Costs and Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships are available for selected students from developing countries and countries in economic transition. These scholarships cover virtually all costs related to participation in the Program including tuition, living accommodations, basic living expenses in the form of a monthly stipend, medical insurance, social activities, administration costs, and some textbooks. Airfare to and from Israel is not included in the scholarship.

Scholarship support is not available for students from high-income countries. The cost of participation in the IMPH program for non-scholarship students is 100,000 New Israeli Shekels (NIS). All payments must be made in Israeli currency or foreign currency based on the official exchange rate on the day of payment. This sum covers tuition, administrative fees, social/cultural activities, and medical insurance. (Living accommodations are not included and cannot be guaranteed.)
