Establishing the Military Tract in the Hebrew University School of Medicine is an opportunity to enrich the medical curriculum with contents relevant to better training of military physicians. Subjects such as hyperbaric medicine, hypobaric physiology, terror medicine, mass casualty event (MCE) and management of non-conventional injuries will be added to the regular M.D. curriculum. Medical education based on the elements of excellence: Judaism, Zionism, humanism and leadership, will be the foundations for the future generation of medical leaders in Israel for both the military and civilian systems. This leadership will be articulated in the clinical, research and administrative fields.
