In June 2008, an interest group for Gender Medicine was formed at the Rabin Medical Center in Israel by 27 chairs and vice chairs of different medical disciplines. This lead to the foundation of the Israel Society for Gender Medicine (IsraGeM) in February 2009 at an inauguration congress which attracted more than 350 participants from most Israeli hospitals and most medical disciplines. The new society elected an executive board, which is currently presided by Prof. Marek Glezerman-ObGyn. Current board members are Ms. Orit Barak-Registered Nurse; Dr. Pnina Dorfman-Etrog –Psychiatrist Prof. Dov Feldberg-ObGyn (secretary), Prof Ilan Krause- Internist and Dr. Heschi Rotmensch –Internist. IsraGeM has currently over 120 active members who represent 16 medical disciplines from 11 Universities and medical centers in Israel. Within the past years, members of IsraGeM have initiated dozens of research projects. IsraGem has been instrumental in including Gender Medicine in the curriculum for medical students and in the Post Graduate School of Tel Aviv University. Since 2009 ISRAGEM in close cooperation with Rabin Medical Center has organized 6 annual congresses dedicated to various aspects of Gender Medicine and in 2010 IsraGeM has proudly hosted the 5th International Congress on Gender Medicine in Tel Aviv. Subsequently, IsraGeM has co-organized two international meetings on Gender Medicine in Baltimore (2012) and in Berlin (2015). IsraGeM was also instrumental in the foundation of the first Israeli Research Center for Gender Medicine at the Rabin Medical Center.
