Participants coming to Israel for the IFMSA exchange program are responsible for meeting their own health & accident care costs, including hospitalization. It is therefore IMPERATIVE that all participants be in possession of a PERSONAL Travel, Health and Accident Insurance. Students who fail to produce copies of their insurance risk having their exchange period automatically canceled without any refund.
The Federation of Israeli Medical Students (“FIMS” ) or any person such as: hosting hospitals, dorms, social program organizers, operators and any other hosts will neither provide nor offer medical care or insurance coverage to participants, and are not responsible in any way for the health and safety of the exchange student.
Malpractice insurance is not obligatory, but RECOMMENDED.
Make sure your luggage (including valuables/laptop) is covered by your insurance. Hosting hospitals/dorms/FIMS or any other hosts will not be held responsible for loss/theft of your property."
