An exercise for medical students to simulate the handling of a serious accident on Jerusalem’s light rail will be held on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the beginning of the line on Mount Herzl. The exercise is the summation of the trauma course for sixth-year medical students at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School. Students will serve as the "injured" as well as the doctors, spokesmen and supervisors.

The hour was chosen because it is not a rush hour on the train. The exercise will be run by Prof. Avi Rivkind, chairman of general surgery and the trauma unit at Hadassah University Medical Center in Ein Kerem, who will be joined by the Israel Police, Israel Railways, Fire Service, Magen David Adom, United Hatzalah and others.
