Establishing a Health Sciences Program and Building at the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yafo
Developing Health Sciences professionals and expanding the field of Healthcare Sciences
The Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yafo (MTA) is a fully accredited public higher education institution with a mission to harness its resources for the benefit of society. MTA has 4,000 students and over 15,000 alumni. Academic streams include six undergraduate programs and nine graduate programs, all of which have earned excellent academic reputations and are considered among the most prestigious in the country. For students’ practical studies in health sciences, the College partners with two of Israel’s leading hospitals: Ichilov Medical Center located in central Tel-Aviv and the Sheba/Tel-Hashomer Hospital and Medical Research Institute in Ramat-Gan.
MTA’s record of academic excellence and its reputation in industry as a center of outstanding professionals, has led both the Israeli Ministry of Health and the Council of Higher Education to approach the College with an appeal to open additional degree tracks in the field of health science and to establish the Health Sciences Building.
The department will be the first of its kind in Israel and will prepare graduates for professions in several fields that are critically lacking in Israel. MTA’s Department of Health Sciences aims to expand its healthcare disciplines and develop new and innovative academic programs for clinical and non-clinical careers in public hospitals, private facilities and other health-care related services.
Adding to the MTA’s existing campus, the new four story building housing the School of Health Sciences will feature classrooms, state-of-the art laboratories, an auditorium, recreational areas, and faculty office space. The building will adhere to ‘green’ standards and include energy conserving features and natural building materials. Green buildings are designed to efficiently use energy, water, and other resources, while reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.
The Health Sciences Building will provide the College with a much needed expansion opportunity.
