The Israeli Medical Corps held a final exercise for the largest field doctors course in the history of the IDF on Wednesday 27.10.10. As many as fifty new doctors will finish the military medical course next week and will be assigned to various IDF units on land, sea or air.
Those finishing the course will be dispatched to individuals battalions, such that a doctor will be staffed to every battalion in the IDF.
Brig. Gen. Dr. Nachman Ash, Commander of the Medical Corps, tested the IDF’s doctors-to-be and congratulated the participants: “These are doctors full of motivation, with a sparkle in their eyes. They are ready and willing to do their work. There is no doubt that from now on, with the manning of the positions in all field units, the medical response for soldiers will correspond to the need”.
