The Health Ministry released information on Wednesday for new immigrant physicians who want to be exempted from an Israeli medical license or receiving permission to become a hospital intern.

A month ago, the Knesset Labor, Social Affairs and Health Committee approved regulations that will make it easier for physicians from the US to begin their careers here. Medical graduates from the US only who passed the US Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) are now entitled to exemption from medical licensing and pre-intern exams if they have a recognized medical diploma but have not taken the Israeli pre-intern exam and if they have met all other requirements.
