In recent years, many changes have taken place in the Turkish healthcare sector with the aim of preserving and improving the health status of society. These changes have led to an increase in competition in the healthcare sector which has continued to grow and evolve. As a result, there is an increased need for managers who can develop more efficient, more productive and more innovative solutions to problems experienced in the field and who possess conceptual, analytical and technical knowledge, skills and talents which can help guide the sector.

The fundamental goal of the Department of Health Management is to contribute to the placement of health managers and leaders in all institutions of the healthcare sector at all levels.

The Difference Between the Department of Health Management and Similar Programs

The students of the Department of Healthcare Management are prepared so that they are able to easily express themselves not only in Turkey but also in countries such as the US, Canada and countries of the EU. The course content taught to our students is prepared according to the expectations of accredited international institutions who offer similar programs. Therefore our graduates will have the opportunity to find employment not only in Turkey but also in these countries. The fundamental difference between the program in this country in comparison with similar programs in other countries is that our students begin their practical education in hospitals and other healthcare institutions from their second year onwards. In this scope, second and third year students attend compulsory practical applications one day a week for the entire year while this increases to three days per week in the spring semester of the fourth year. Additionally, students undertake a summer internship involving 20 working days in a specific field (finance, marketing, quality, patient services etc.) which reinforces their knowledge while maintaining a balance between theory and practice. The applied internship helps students when they begin their careers as they benefit from their experiences gained during their practical training.
