Israel Research and Education
Koret School of Veterinary Medicine
The Koret School of Veterinary Medicine at the Hebrew University was founded in response to Israel's critical need for veterinary training and research. It is the only veterinary school in Israel and is widely considered to be the top vet school in the entire Middle East. Since opening its doors in 1985, the Koret School has become especially renowned for its pioneering equine program. Its dual mission is to produce international leadership in research and treatment, particularly for the healthy and efficient production of livestock as well as in companion animals.
Koret-Milken Institute Fellows
In operation for nearly a decade, the Koret-Milken Institute Fellow Program offers fellowships to outstanding graduate students in Israel, enabling them to pursue economic policy research with leading decision-makers, business entrepreneurs, and academics. Each fellow is also assigned to a government ministry or the office of a Member of Knesset. Tax reform, urban revitalization, health-care innovations, and employment solutions are just a few of the research topics that have been pursued by Koret-Milken Institute Fellows.
Building economic and educational opportunity, as well as educating and advocating in the United States, Koret has made Israel a top priority.
