Historical Note

May 7, 1950 meeting at the Zionist House organizing the American Physicians Fellowship Committee of the Israel Medical Association.

The American Physicians and Friends for Medicine in Israel (APF) was officially incorporated in 1952, following years of work by American and Israeli physicians to create ties and foster cooperation between American and Israeli colleagues. The endeavor began in 1912 when a group of physicians met in Tel Aviv and established the Hebrew Medicinal Society for Jaffa and the Jaffa District. The following year, another Jewish physicians group was organized in Jerusalem called the Hebrew-Speaking Physician’s Society, which was open to those physicians who spoke Hebrew but did not reside in Israel. The two groups began a collaboration in 1914 and ultimately merged under the name The Hebrew Medical Association in the Land of Israel (HMA) following World War I. Then, after the establishment of the State of Israel, HMA became the Israeli Medical Association (IMA).

Dr. Moshe Sherman, one of the founders of the Hebrew Medicinal Society for Jaffa and the Jaffa District and later president of the IMA, believed in the importance of creating strong ties and cultivating cooperation between Israeli physicians and fellow physicians of the Diaspora. In 1945, he helped found the Mifal Haverut Hutz (Foreign Membership Project) as a means to achieve these goals. In 1949, after having made little progress, he met Dr. Morton Robbins of Nashua, New Hampshire, who was at the time the National Vice President of the Zionist Organization of America, when Robbins was visiting Israel. Dr. Robbins became interested in the cause and was able to enroll new members in their non-resident project, Mifal Haverut Hutz, in the United States. He was later asked by the organization to create a special committee of physicians in America on behalf of the IMA and was given authorization to enroll new members. On March 7, 1950 a group met at the Zionist House in Boston and agreed to organize the American Physician Fellowship Committee of the Israel Medical Association. In 1952, the American Physicians Fellowship for Medicine in Israel was founded and officially incorporated.

The APF has continued the original mission to support projects that advance medical education, research, and healthcare in Israel and to build links between the medical communities of Israel and North America. The Fellowship Program is the organization’s flagship program and continues the earliest goals of the APF. It provides financial assistance to Israeli physicians receiving post-doctoral specialty training in North America, as well as supplies research grants to physicians engaged in basic medical research in Israel. The organization also offers the Solomon Hirsh Nursing Awards each year to Israeli nurses, enabling them to visit North American medical institutions, where they can learn about new methods and techniques to bring back to Israel. The APF offers training in disaster management through their Disaster and Emergency Preparedness Courses in Israel, in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the Medical Corps of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Another effort that the APF has maintained for years is a registry of Emergency Medical Volunteers, in the event of a national crisis in Israel. They are the only organization to be given this designation by the State of Israel.

Throughout its history, the APF has supported many programs to further its mission, including giving aid to the construction and maintenance of Jerusalem Academy of Medicine, as well as the Israel Institute of the History of Medicine. The IIMH became the Manuel M. Glazier Institute of the History of Medicine (named after the late national secretary) and moved to the medical history section of the National Medical Library at the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School at Ein Kerem in Jerusalem. Over the years, the APF has helped to maintain many medical libraries, coordinated medical equipment donations, helped to establish podiatry programs in Israel and supported lectures, teaching tours, and programs for Soviet Jewry.
