SACH – Save A Childs Heart.  A worthy cause to become a part of, and a seriously awesome medical elective. I was fortunate enough to hear about SACH from a friend I made while travelling in America last year.  He had volunteered at the children’s home and knew I would love doing a medical elective…

As a medical student at the Sackler School of Medicine NY State/American Program at Tel Aviv University, I have had the privilege of volunteering with Save a Child’s Heart for nearly 3 years. Spending time with the children at the SACH house in Holon is a truly meaningful experience. As I became more familiar with…

Hello to everyone out there reading this, I know I have been distant these last couple of weeks but it is very difficult to post on a blog whilst away from home. I hope that this blog post will give you a good description of my Israel experience at Wolfson Medical Center and at Save…

I mean this literally when I say that I had no idea what to expect before arriving at SACH in mid-May. I had just finished finals for my first year of medical school and then I left for Israel the next day. Because of this, I hadn’t been able to appropriately plan for my journey,…

My name is Shaili Perez, and I am a medical student at the University of Ottawa in Canada. This summer, I was fortunate enough to do a two-week internship at Save A Child’s Heart.

My experience at Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) was like none I have ever had or was expecting to have in my life. I am a medical student in Chicago, IL aspiring to be a surgeon one day and I have taken part in many opportunities involving surgery and pediatrics to make sure it is…

Sivan Ben-Maimon

Following my first year of medical school at the George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences I decided to travel to Israel and work at Save A Child’s Heart (SACH) as a medical intern, a decision and opportunity I will forever be grateful for. SACH is unlike any clinical environment I have ever experienced….

Before coming to SACH, I would have never imagined that only 2 short weeks would be so life-changing. From the moment I walked into the doors of the SACH house, I was immediately showered with hugs, kisses, smiles, and high fives from the kids. Their strength and bravery continuously amazed me every day – despite…

This past January I travelled to Israel and for two weeks I had the pleasure of being a medical intern with Save a Child’s Heart at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel. I am in awe of the SACH team and the humanitarian goodness they fill their day to day with. As a medical intern…

Hi! My name is Shier Ziser and I’m a final year medical student from University College London in the U.K. By the time you’re reading this I may have hopefully graduated to being Dr Ziser . As a U.K. medical student, I am obligated to undertake a 6 week medical internship abroad or at a…

  In 2010, two years out of undergrad, I decided to leave my business consulting job in pursuit of a medical degree. As I had not taken any courses other than Bio (for non-premed majors), the first step would be to enroll in a post-baccalaureate premedical program. Because I hadn’t completed any meaningful clinical work…

Jordan Bade-Boon

As part of my final year of medical school I had the opportunity to undertake an elective rotation with SACH for 6 weeks. For the first 2 weeks of my stay I also had the bonus of staying in the SACH home, where I was immediately welcomed by smiling faces and bubbling personalities upon my…
