Volunteering in Israel – Helping Refugees in Tel Aviv


Volunteer in Israel – Refugee Health Clinic in Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv, Israel

This summer I volunteered at Tel Aviv Refugee Health Clinic. I have never had been more grateful for taking a trip abroad by myself.  At the clinic I was able to shadow doctors and scribe for them, work in the reception, and also participate in data research.

I learned what it takes to run a clinic, and how everyone is involved to keep it running. It helped me grow more as a student in the medical field, and how to apply myself better.  I had to challenge myself by communicating with those who did not know the same language as me.

For someone looking into the medical field, this is something that every student dreams of as a volunteer experience. While at the clinic, I was able to get to know the staff. They were so welcoming and helpful the entire time. I have a love for the refugees residing in Israel, and this experience has further pushed my desire to be a doctor.

For someone who is interested in the medical field, but doesn’t know what specialty they want to look into, this clinic is for you. By shadowing and working with different types of doctors, I was able to find the area that I love and have a passion for. When you find an area that you like more, the directors are also very willing to let you spend more time volunteering in that area. It was helpful because I got to learn so much in an area that I could have a future working in.
