If you are a student of health and medicine – your heart is in the right place. Our mission is to connect the beating heart to the challenges that arise from the field.
How It Works?
The HUBC unit works for the benefit of chronic patients, especially in the third age, also, but not only, in areas with a population with a low socio-economic rating, which is characterized as having low capabilities for exercising rights and optimal self-management.
Our scholarships – all students from the health professions (medicine, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, communication clinics, etc.) – are selected after a rigorous screening process.
After confirming the admission of the students to the project and after training and instruction tailored to the project, the main activity of the students in focusing diverse activities with patients is set in motion. Students who have been selected to participate in the Hibok project receive a financial scholarship for the hours of operation. (Scholarship amount and operating hours vary depending on the project)
The scholarship student meets with the patient at home or makes telephone contact with him, maps out the exact needs for him in person, examines the ways of organizing and conducting himself in the patient’s home, and offers the appropriate services for an optimal response for him.
Next, our scholarships make contact with the relevant bodies (medical factors, associations, welfare bodies and community), and help connect the family to them. These sessions help the patient relieve loneliness and enhance the feeling that he is not alone in facing the challenges of the disease and its treatment. In addition, from time to time, we hold unique scholarship programs in which the bond formed with the patient is around a specific topic. For example, in an active embracing project done in collaboration with ESHL, the students accompanied patients while instructing and instilling habits based on the Activent program. As part of the unique program, female students will accompany patients around issues related to women in old age.
What do you get out of it?
The students participating in the Hibok project receive a rare direct acquaintance with the emotional and social needs of the chronic patient in his home beyond the immediate medical treatment. In addition, this practice provides communication skills with patients and familiarity with the supportive factors in the community. In addition, as part of the various embracing programs, the students are accompanied by a project manager on behalf of the association, among other things by providing professional guidance tailored to the subject of the project, emotional guidance and an available answer to any question. The student’s activity is as part of a scholarship, and he receives monetary compensation for the activity hours set for him in advance.
In recent years, more than 200 scholarship students have participated in the activities of the Huguk unit, in a recent survey, almost 90% of them reported a contribution to the professional field they studied, and 97% testified that they would recommend their friends to participate in our scholarship program.
