The Significance of the Israeli Medical License

Graduates of foreign medical schools who plan to practice medicine in Israel must undergo a rigorous process to ensure that their qualifications align with Israeli standards. This process begins with obtaining an Israeli medical license, a critical step for anyone aspiring to pursue a medical career in the country. This license is the gateway to completing internships, securing employment, and practicing medicine in Israel.

Requirements for the Israeli Medical License Exam

Upon returning to Israel, most graduates of foreign medical schools seek to complete their internship and gain practical experience. To initiate this process, they are required to apply for a license to practice medicine in Israel. This application must be submitted to the Medical Professions Licensing Division of the Ministry of Health at least 60 days before the scheduled date of the government medical exam. It is imperative to adhere to this timeline, as late or incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

The application for an Israeli medical license should include the following documents:

Application DocumentsDescription

  2. A completed questionnaire for professional workers in the healthcare field.
  3. Your medical degree certificate from a recognized foreign university or confirmation of eligibility for the degree.
  4. Official confirmation of the commencement and completion dates of your medical studies.
  5. A document detailing the courses you completed during your medical degree program, including grades for each course, categorized by semester.

Notarization and Translation of Documents: Meeting Ministry of Health Requirements

One of the most crucial aspects of applying for an Israeli medical license as a foreign medical graduate is the proper notarization and translation of your academic documents.

Here are the key steps to follow:

  1. Choose a Qualified Notary: Begin by selecting a qualified notary who specializes in legal document notarization and has experience in handling medical degree certificates.
  2. Notarization: Your academic documents, including your medical degree certificate and any other relevant certificates, must be notarized. A notary public, who is also a licensed attorney, will review your documents, confirm their authenticity, and add their seal and signature to validate the documents legally.
  3. Translation: Since most foreign academic documents are not in Hebrew, you must obtain official translations. These translations should be performed by certified translators in Israel who can ensure that the translated content accurately reflects the original documents. The translations must meet the specific requirements of the Ministry of Health.
  4. Verification: After receiving notarized and translated copies of your academic documents, you should verify their accuracy and completeness. Any errors or discrepancies could lead to complications during the application process.
