The program is intended for students who are admitted directly to medical studies and are interested in pursuing a degree in computer science..

The program of studies is designated for candidates who were accepted to the Faculty of Medicine and are interested in studying for a degree in Computer Science as well.  The program grants a double degree: a BSc in Computer Science and a BSc in Medical Science.  Towards the MD Degree and after completing all the disciplines of the Double Degree Program, the transfer to the Clinical Division  will be possible for three additional years and for one year of internship (pursuant to the Articles of Association of Medicine).

Courses that are parallel to the courses of Medicine will be recognized in favor of the double degree only for students who will complete the double degree program in its entirety, as described in the program of studies.
