A. Background: In recent years, the field of " Safety of treatment in the health system" has gained momentum at various levels. In order to achieve the goal of increasing safety in therapy, the Ministry of Health developed a course in cooperation with the Ramat Gan Academic College.

B. The purposes of the research:
1. Examining students' views and needs at the beginning and end of the course.
2. Student attitudes at the beginning of the program and to what extent they have changed following the experience of the program

C. The research method: The research questionnaire will be based on a valid questionnaire used by the Ministry of Health as part of the ongoing control and quality of the hospitals in Israel. The questionnaire includes questions of knowledge, attitudes, and behavior.

D. Results
Satisfaction with the program was high. 75% responded that the lecturers were very professional, and another 25% said that the lecturers were professional. Most students (88%) would recommend to their peers to participate in a similar program. 38% of the students expect to receive an official position following their studies. These students, who are relevant for the position, were more satisfied with the program and its contribution than others.
