Organisation profile

The Faculty of Health Sciences at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is dedicated to excellence in the education and training of doctors and medical professionals, as well as to excellence in medical research of all kinds. The mission of the FOHS is to educate medical professionals who consider patients holistically, within their familial, social and cultural contexts. This unique community-centered approach is evident in our applicant screening process, which is based on individual interviews, in student involvement in community health projects, and in the curriculums of our various schools and programs, emphasizing the bio-psycho-social approach.

Advanced world-class scientific research at the Faculty's research departments and centers, clinical divisions, and schools encompasses a broad range of topics and fields – from basic science to the clinical. The scope of activities at the FOHS encompasses medicine in the widest sense, characteristic of our comprehensive and humanistic understanding of sickness and health.
