I am a medical student studying in Jordan. After graduating from my bachelor’s degree, can I complete my residency in medicine in Israel, knowing that I hold American and Jordanian citizenship? What are the papers and exams that I need? Do I need an exam in the Hebrew language?

Residency in medicine
International medical graduates can take part in their residency in Israel in several of the hospitals that offer international residency tracks. The hospitals are located in different areas of the country. The duration of the residency differs depending on the program and the hospital.
In order to apply for residency, you will have to contact the different hospitals and inquire whether they have open residencies in the near future. They will also be able to decide if your academic achievements match the requirements in Israel, decided by the ministry of health.
