Health Services

All students at the University of the Holy Land must have health insurance coverage for the duration of their studies. Insurance may be provided by a foreign carrier (i.e., from the student’s home country) or may be purchased from one of the Israeli health insurance providers. Names, contact numbers and applications for local providers are available in the UHL office.

It is the responsibility of the student to secure health insurance.

Students are required to sign a health and liability waiver.

Students who are Israeli citizens or new immigrants (olim) are personally responsible for joining an Israeli health fund (kupat holim) for access to medical care.

In the case of a minor illness, the UHL office can recommend a General Practitioner for a private office visit at a reasonable fee.

In the case of a minor medical emergency, the student is advised to visit one of the TEREM clinics listed in the Emergency Contact Information.

In the event of a major medical emergency, if able, the student should go directly to the nearest hospital, which would likely be Hadassah Mt. Scopus. If in need of ambulance assistance, call 101.

In the case of a psychological or emotional crisis, UHL has a clinical psychologist on staff who can help to assess the situation, provide counsel, and/or make a recommendation for additional care. Contact any administrator through the UHL office.
