The American Physicians Fellowship for Medicine in Israel (APF) Emergency Medical Volunteers are on call to help save Israeli lives and aid the injured during emergencies and disasters, as well as during peacetime. This unique program was started in order to provide Israeli civilian hospitals with volunteer physicians and health care professionals while their Israeli counterparts perform military duty, which depletes hospital staffs.
APF is the sole organization designated by the State of Israel to maintain an Emergency Medical Volunteer Registry for North American Physicians.
In the event of an emergency in Israel, medical volunteers from APF’s Volunteer Registry would be called upon to serve the general population.
The State of Israel will provide these volunteers with travel, housing and insurance.
We are honored that the State of Israel has chosen our organization as the official Registry in North America to come to the aid of Israel in time of crisis. We encourage physicians, nurses and other health care professionals to join Volunteer Registry. All medical specialties are welcome.
