Our Alumni MEDfOR students, often found a job within a year after graduation. Roughly one third of the students have decided to pursue a PhD after graduation or stay in academia doing research. Half of the students have gone back to their home countries, some to their old posts – such as lecturer at Universities - while others had landed new jobs, in private entities, public administration, etc. Several students have launched an international carrier in international organizations or as consultants. Some students, stayed on the universities were they graduated – doing research or PhDs; while others found internships and job with the associated partners.
