Technion American Medical School Waves Farewell to its 2012 Graduates


Technion Graduates

About the Technion American Medical School in Haifa, Israel

The Technion American Medical School’s Class of 2012 graduated this month in a ceremony that marked the end of their studies in Israel and symbolized the start of their medical careers. 23 students from cities across America and Canada have spent the last four years in Haifa’s world-renowned Technion University as part of the intensely rigorous yet highly rewarding American medical program. These newly-qualified doctors will soon be returning to North America to begin their residencies at well-known medical centers and hospitals across the country.

Professor Andrew Levy, Director of the American School, lauded the students for their academic achievements, as reflected in the 95% pass rate on the USMLE exams and encouraged them to always remember the support they received, “You have every right to be proud of your achievements. But remember that you reached this place and will only go further with the help of many others, whether they be family, friends, teachers or patients. The more you recognize this, the more satisfied you will be in your careers and the more you will be able to cope with whatever life throws at you. We hope some of you will come back to us and make Israel your home after your training—we really need you. ”

Lauren Astrug, from Chicago, addressed her fellow graduates; “We all moved to Israel for many different reasons, but we leave here today all the same, as doctors. After four years, this rollercoaster ride is taking a turn in its tracks today and the ride sure has been one of the best adventures of my life.”
