In an effort to facilitate an active exchange of Israeli doctors to numerous different specialized medical centers in the United States, American Friends of Rabin Medical Center has established the Rabin Fellows Program. The goal of the program is to sponsor and send Israeli doctors from the Rabin Medical Center to America, for periods of two weeks to six months, to engage in research, training, and education projects. As leaders in the med-ical sector, a strong and well-established partnership between Israel and the United States will help to advance healthcare worldwide. As part of the program, AFRMC also sponsors Rabin doctors and researchers at the hospital in Israel and intends to send American doctors to visit Rabin Medical Center for training and specialization
AFRMC and Rabin Medical Center have worked to include the following areas of cooperation and exchange: breast cancer treatment and research, genetic diseases, emergency and trauma medicine, women's medicine, pulmonary medicine, and diabetes care. Additional areas of medical exchange will be expanded in the future as the program continues to grow. Named sponsorship opportunities for the ever-expanding fellowship program are available and range from $5,000 to $30,000. Israel and the United States have some of the most talented doctors and medical practitioners in the world, and increasing support for these collaborative research efforts can help find cures for cancer, genetic, and other diseases, those that affect all strata of citizens around the globe. For further information on sponsoring Rabin Fellows, contact AFRMC at 212.279.2522 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Eli Sidon, a 32-year-old orthopedic surgery resident at Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikvah, traveled to Las Vegas in May 2011 as the first-ever Rabin Fellow to spend two weeks with Dr. Hugh Bassewitz, the hosting physician at the Desert Orthopaedic Center.
Included in the two-week orthopedic shadowing and mentoring program was an immersion in Las Vegas Jewish cultural events as part of the partnership with the Las Vegas Jewish Federation. The relationship between Elliot Karp, the President and C.E.O. of the Federation, and Joshua Plaut, Executive Director of American Friends of Rabin Medical Center created the first annual Ofer and Shari Yardeni Rabin Visiting Fellowship. In June, Mr. Karp visited Israel's Rabin Medical Center.
