The most important factor for me to choose Yeditepe University was that it was educating in English. I had some hesitations when I started the department. But I realized that I made the right choice thanks to my professors who are specialized in their fields, experienced and transferred their experiences to us. The fact that our professors contacted us one-on-one helped me warm up to the school. The activities, projects and social responsibility projects we organized with our department instructors enabled me to develop myself in both professional and social fields. After graduation, I start working at Yeditepe University Specialized Hospital, which keeps the spirit of our university alive. Having a team understanding and seeing familiar faces here quickly helped me get used to it. At the same time, not limiting myself to undergraduate education and starting to graduate school makes me more active, conscious and knowledgeable. Let us not forget that we must develop ourselves and protect our profession.
