Our students will graduate as expert healthcare workers in their relevant field thanks to the theoretical and practical training of basic health sciences and field courses as well as fundamental pathology techniques used in the diagnosis of diseases, which they will learn from our expert staff. Furthermore, courses of molecular pathology methods, which are used in diagnosis and research in pathology laboratories, in our curriculum will strengthen the competencies of our students. Our applied courses are conducted in the full-fledged pathology laboratory of the Vocational School of Health Services. In order to consolidate students' technical education, internship is included in the 3rd and 4th semester of our curriculum.
