Incredible Scholarship for Medicine Students

Message from Vice Rector , Prof Dr Ismet ESENYEL.

Incredible Scholarship Opportunities for 2022 Fall Semester. 

Dear  Prospective Students, Ministers of Higher Education and Ministers of Public Health  in third world countries;

With the COVID-19 pandemic, frontline healthcare workers have been experiencing high work volume, personal risk, and societal pressure to meet extraordinary demands for healthcare. Health care professionals have critical roles in diagnosis; containment, treatment, and their commitment to patient’s welfare despite increased personal risks have proven essential for a successful public health response. The need for globally trained healthcare workers is undoubtedly higher than ever. 

Mindful of the role the universities must play in addressing global, societal problems, we are determined to establish a new cohort of international students in our healthcare and medicine programs. Therefore, we would like to offer 100% scholarships to students from Medicine Faculties especially for the departments of, 

  • Pharmacy
  • Nursing
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Medicine
