Prof.Dr. Nezihe KIZILKAYA BEJİ
The history of medicine and healthcare services traces its roots to the first human on earth. Healthcare-related professions are increasing on a continuous basis. Today, there are approximately 80 healthcare professions, but can arguably equate to approximately 400 professions within each specialty area. In Turkey alone, there are 43 legally defined healthcare professions, which can be obtained through a vocational school, undergraduate and graduate education.
As Biruni University is designed to provide education in every available field of healthcare in Turkey, The Faculty of Health Sciences is a constituent part of the university. While Biruni University initially began its activities under 11 departments for the first time in Turkey, our Faculty has been established within a short period of time through the contributions of prominent scientists, academics, and professionals, each with a success story in the industry.
In developed countries, health sciences and healthcare professionals work as a team and achieve success together. The way to be a good team is to be a part of an integrated system. In our faculty, all healthcare departments are available.
This structure has been built with the idea to train scientists and equip professionals for healthcare systems and the industry, to offer new knowledge, and to use such knowledge in the economy.
