Medicine: The Very Model of a Modern Major Doctor
A new program has opened in Jerusalem, one that combines the best of Hadassah’s medical school with elite Army training.
There are 50 of them this first year. One is the daughter of a leading Jerusalem urologist, another is a new immigrant from Russia who has supported herself until now by waiting tables. There are two keen amateur musicians (a saxophonist and a pianist), two dancers, a talented basketball player and a former commando.
They come from towns, villages and kibbutzim across Israel (four of them are Druze). They are from the religious and secular communities; the youngest have just finished high school and the oldest is 25.
