The Nursing School with the Clinic for Refugees

Nursing students at the Academic College of Tel-Aviv-Yafo volunteer at a local refugee clinic as a supervised practicum. Tel-Aviv is home to a large community of refugees, mostly from East-Africa (Sudan & Eritrea) who have little access to health services. Students involvement in the clinic centers around the community's specific needs and circumstances. By facing the unique challenges of this clinic students develop intercultural sensitivity and competence that will serve them in their career, and the community gains greater access to health-care services.​
