Dear Young People,
Currently, it is known that the social, economic and political dimensions of issues related to health and health services are becoming increasingly important in all countries. In these days, when we are fighting the pandemic, our awareness of the importance of Health has increased in our country, as in the world, and the value of human and material elements in health services has been better understood. In addition, developments in science and technology have led to important developments in the field of health, as in every field. The need for people who are experts in their fields and who have technical knowledge and skills to work in the health sector, where the variety and quality of personnel are the most intense, is increasing day by day. A lot of tasks fall on our universities and on providing manpower to meet this need. The university should be considered as educational institutions where individuals stand on their own feet, make their own decisions, and most importantly, individuals take their life responsibilities. In this process, vocational schools offer a great opportunity for young people who want to take an early step into professional life and to take roles and responsibilities in the health sector. Thanks to the theoretical and vocational applied formal education provided in 4-terms with vocational associate’s degree programs, young people who want to have a profession are given the opportunity to start life and have a job as soon as possible.

Our school has developed an education cooperation partnership program with leading health institutions in the field that will support professional practice and training activities for each program. With these cooperation programs, our students are provided with an opportunity for internship and post-graduation employment. Our course contents are determined together with the institutions we cooperate with, and professional practice courses are given by expert tutors from these institutions. In addition to the professional, social and ethical-based trainings we provide to our students, elective courses with various up-to-date contents and prioritizing personal skills are provided with extensive socialization opportunities. With all these education programs, we aim to raise our young people as qualified, equipped, self-confident, sociable individuals who have national and moral values, who voluntarily provide health services to people, are aware of their professional responsibilities, and have high love, conscience and moral feelings.
