(JERUSALEM POST) -- The government has decided not to allow foreign students to study medicine in Israel, barring them from Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Ben-Gurion Faculty of Health Sciences (BGU) in Beersheba and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s Rappaport Faculty of Medicine in Haifa.
The Jerusalem Post learned on Monday that the Council for Higher Education (CHE) and the Health and Finance Ministries’ decision was finally taken. Their decision followed a 2018 recommendation by the CHE due to the large number of Israelis who go to Europe to become physicians because they are not accepted at faculties here.

The graduating classes of 2026 will be the last for the Americans and Canadians who came here for the four-year MD degree in the three aforementioned Israeli faculties.
