  Academic and Research Activities

The department is actively involved in teaching and in research projects, a number of which have won national and international awards.

Presently, Profs. Luder and Amirav are well advanced in their research into the genetic disease “Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia” that has been awarded a 300,000 NIS grant from the Ministry of Health. Prof. Luder and Dr. Gilby (Director of ENT department) are working on a research project in acupuncture.

Prof. Luder is the Deputy Dean for the Faculty of Medicine “Ilan B’Galil” and has been part of the administrative team that opened the Bar-Ilan Faculty of Medicine in Zefat this year. For the past 20 years the students from the Technion Faculty of Medicine in Haifa trained in the department and presently the students from the new Faculty will do so. Additionally, students of nursing and other clinical studies study in the department as well as students of nutrition, special education and social work.  

  New Services

Recently we added pediatric gastroscopy and bronchoscopy to our outpatient department and presently we are adding a follow-up and counseling clinic for bed-wetting and constipation. The pediatric intensive care ward opened in 2009.
