The Israel Society for Gender Medicine (IsraGem) was created in 2009 at the Rabin Medical Center during the first Israel Meeting dedicated to this new science. The medical and academic community accepted the Gender- and Sex-Specific Medicine (GSSM) actually without any resistance. It was as the time has been ripe for the required changes. The new society quickly attracted professionals from other clinical and academic institutions in Israel, we started to hold annual conferences, each dedicated to gender and sex aspects of specific medical disciplines, we introduced teaching activities into the curricula of medical students at Tel Aviv University and conducted many postgraduate courses. Research activities commenced across the spectrum of medical disciplines and the media welcomed us enthusiastically. Within less than a decade, GSSM has become established in the mainstay of research, teaching, and many clinical frameworks in Israel. No doubt, the introduction of GSSM has been a great success so far.
