Dr. Oren Wacht received his bachelor’s degree in Emergency Medical Services and his postgraduate degrees in Health Systems Management from BGU. He made news after heroically providing emergency medical care under fire during Operation Protective Edge near the Gaza border, where he served as a paramedic for 52 days.

As a member of the BGU faculty, Dr. Wacht is in charge of third year student clerkships and teaches and supervises advanced clinical courses on health systems management. He is also the academic manager of the new Medical Simulation Center at BGU. Students at BGU who receive a master’s degree in emergency medicine are equipped to help in emergencies and disaster relief all over the world, including the recent earthquake in Nepal.
