The Medical School
for International Health

Welcome to admissions at the Medical School for International Health!

Congratulations on your decision to apply to medical school! This can be a time-consuming and intimidating process. We have tried to make the process individualized and interactive.  While the majority of your medical training will take place on the campus of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer Sheva, Israel, the admissions office is located in New York, NY. Our small and dedicated team will personally guide you through the application process. The close attention and availability or our team is representative of the culture you will experience at MSIH. 

With a mission to provide a medical education that focuses on the interface between global health and community and preventive medicine, we seek applicants from all nationalities who wish to prepare themselves for careers in global health and population-based medicine. MISH looks at each applicant as an individual. We seek outstanding students with the academic preparation, maturity, and commitment to master a rigorous medical school curriculum. In selecting applicants, we give consideration to academic excellence (indicated through GPA and standardized test scores), recommendations, extracurricular experiences, life experiences, personal growth, maturity, and interview assessments.

As the first and only medical school in the world that incorporates global health components into all four years of the curriculum, the MSIH Admissions Committee also gives merit to applicants who exhibit a strong interest in global medicine, working with diverse and underserved populations, and knowledge of multiple languages and cultures.

We thank you for your interest in MSIH and look forward to working with you as you complete your application.

Good luck!
