Treatment, Research and Training
A key strength of Pediatrics “A” is its research laboratory established by Prof. Ashkenazi, which conducts clinical research and investigates infectious diseases. Research is one of the three components of medical excellence, together with comprehensive, personalized, and empathetic treatment, and training that aims to ensure the continuation of quality care in the future.
