Would you support a collaborative cancer medicine fellowship program between Northern Israel and Victoria?
Would you support a collaborative cancer medicine fellowship program between Northern Israel and Victoria? The Rambam Health Care Campus is the sole tertiary care center in Northern Israel providing the most advanced medical care to 2 million people. The majority of senior physicians following their specialty program are going for further training and exposure to other medical systems either in North America, Britain, or France to broaden their knowledge and perform research. Based on my very positive experience during my sabbatical at the Peter Mac Aggressive Lymphoma Service in Melbourne (Victoria, Australia), I suggest establishing a collaborative scholarship program between the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Melbourne. This program would sponsor a one-year training for fellows in hematology, oncology, radiation therapy or nuclear medicine, enabling exchange of ideas and exposure to technologies and studies that are not always brought to Rambam. Such a program, if financed, will be beneficial for both medical centers and will have an essential long-term impact on the fellows, their patients and future trainees, once these physicians choose to pursue the academic track. If you find a strong advanced cancer medicine appealing for support, I suggest you to consider this project.
