Grey's Anatomy actors practice medicine in Israel

Monday, June 20, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

Actors from the popular American medical television series Grey's Anatomy got a chance to try their hand at some of the most advanced robotic surigical techniques in the world when they visited Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital on Friday.

Kevin McKidd and Sarah Drew, who play Dr. Owen Hunt and Dr. April Kepner, respectively, were given the opportunity to practice complicated procedures while visiting Hadassah's robotic surgery laboratory.

McKidd and Drew were joined by actors from two other popular television series, Rookie Blue and Raising Hope.

The group of American actors was in Israel at the initiative of America's Voices in Israel, an organizatino that exists to bring influential figures and opinion molders to the Jewish state in order to counter widespread misconceptions and outright lies regarding life in and the policies of Israel.

Last month, America's Voices in Israel brought cast members of the FOX series House - including Lisa Edelstein and Omar Epps - for a similar visit. The House actors were also given the chance to practice real medicine at Israel's advanced medical facilities.
