Dear Prospective Students,
Our mission is not only to provide our students with the best medical education possible, but also help them contribute to medical science by teaching them research methodology and encouraging them to find out what areas of medicine they have a passion for.
We have 160 faculty members in over 40 medical specialization areas; and our students have access to patients all around Turkey through the Medical Park Hospital Group, since the flagship hospital in Göztepe is our university hospital. The hospital is within two minutes’ walking distance to our faculty building, an important factor to consider in Istanbul. This means our students have easy access to patients and professors.
We have 17 laboratories for clinical and training and they are open for our students to use 24/7 for their own projects or with professors who guide them. Our simulation and medical education center is currently being built by the beautiful Bosphorus, on BAU’s main campus in Beşiktaş and will offer international medical practitioners the opportunity to enhance and update their skills or learn new ones.
The medium of education is English. We have a very international student body, with 150 of our 580 students representing nearly 30 different countries. This is not surprising since we are part of Bahçeşehir University with the highest ratio of international students among all Turkish universities as well as campuses abroad in Berlin, Washington DC and Cyprus.
Our students have been accepted for summer programs in distinguished laboratories or clinics around the world such as Harvard Medical School, Yale Medical School, Georgetown University, Arkansas Heart Hospital, Oxford University in the UK, Middleheim Hospital in Belgium, Riken Labs in Tokyo and Asan Hospital in South Korea, among many others. We are proud that they are contributing to extending our international network.
We welcome students who thrive in challenging conditions and who have a passion for science and for medicine and hope that you will join us
