Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $5,000 to Israel post-residency physicians to support post-doctoral specialty education at a medical center in the USA or Canada. Applicants must demonstrate an intention to return to Israel following fellowship completion and show commitment to improving medical care at their home institution.

From the beginning, the APF has been dedicated to furthering medical education and care in Israel by providing much needed financial assistance to young Israeli physicians coming to North America for post-doctoral specialty training. Over the years APF fellowship grants have been awarded to over 1,500 Israeli physicians, many of whom today fill senior positions in Israel’s hospitals and medical schools.

The practice of sending young physicians to North America for specialty training is one of the principle ways the Israeli medical system enriches its reservoir of knowledge and experience. These fellowships offer the opportunity to learn at leading American and Canadian medical centers and to form relationships with colleagues that last a life time. Even more so, these fellows take back to Israel the knowledge and skills learned for the benefit of their patients, hospitals, communities, and the country of Israel.
