The student community is an integral part of the medical school experience at Technion. Our students act as a family away from home, supporting incoming students as they acclimate to a new country and new stage of life. Each student is assigned a mentor to provide academic, social, and general guidance as they transition to life in Israel, and upperclassmen constantly offer assistance, from sharing notes and study tips to running exam review sections and tutoring.
The TeAMS Student Council organizes social events as a way to bring students together from the American and Israeli programs and offer a fun way to take a break from their studies. Planned activities including the Annual Dodgeball Tournament, Variety Show, movie nights, running club, and other Technion-wide events. Student Council provides holiday festivities ranging from Jewish-themed Hanukkah Harry gift exchanges and Lag Ba’Omer bonfires to more American events like a Thanksgiving potluck and Halloween costume party. Additionally, students are always invited to Shabbat dinners every week by other students, where everyone eats, drinks, hangs with friends, and takes a relaxing night off.
