The International School of Medicine department’s entire program is in English. In the preparatory class, the students reach the English language proficiency required for professional, academic and societal issues. Afterwards, they start the medical education program, which provides horizontal integration among basic sciences as well as vertical integration between basic sciences and clinical sciences in the preclinical period.
The first-year courses comprise lectures and laboratory, and preclinical activities in basic sciences, dental anatomy, occlusion, and dental materials. In the second year, students are expected to develop additional preclinical skills, learn how basic science principles are applied to clinical settings, and get involved in clinical applications. Students who complete the first two years are awarded a basic medical sciences diploma.
We provide the opportunity to study up to two semesters in Europe through the Erasmus program, as well as pursue a double major or major/minor program. Students gain hands-on experience through laboratory-based education and participation in research projects. Compulsory internships in the summers following the fourth and sixth semesters enable students to gain experience in the application areas of their interests. At Medipol, Computer Engineering students are also given the chance to work on research projects starting from the third year.
Our department, with its growing number of experienced and dynamic faculty members, is aiming to be a leader in both research and education. Our faculty members and graduates contribute to the development of science and technology and address the needs of our country through collaboration with national and international industry, state agencies, and research labs.
Our school specializes in developing students’ managerial abilities and conceptual talents by transferring skills from top-class managers in pioneering industries. We believe that our school creates innovative ideas for our students and enables them to adapt to challenging business environments with competitive skills and talents. From the first days, your time at school is a perfect experience in your life and you will have an outstanding opportunity to meet global students and world-class scholars.
