Dear Students,

 First of all, i would like to welcome all of you and congratulate you for choosing Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Dr. Fazıl Küçük  Faculty of Medicine.

In our faculty, we are conducting a joint medical education program with Marmara University Faculty of Medicine. The education of our students continues in full cooperation between two faculties. The language of instruction of our faculty is English, and international students are given Turkish lessons in the first three years of their medical education.

Our dynamic and experienced staff offer high quality education in the most advanced multidisciplinary laboratories, small learning rooms and amphi theatres. From the first day, our students acquire skills in practical applications of the profession.


Personal and professional development of our students are provided through Problem Based Learning modules and research projects. In this way, our students develop their skills in analytical, critical thinking, teamwork and leadership, and learn the social concepts in medicine. Our curriculum includes basic medical sciences as well as courses such as evidence-based medicine practice, research methodology, ethics and humanities. In addition, during their education, our students develop clinical practice through simulated patient exercises.

As Dr. Fazıl Küçük Faculty of Medicine, our main goal is to create a world-renown state of art faculty of medicine that supports contemporary and continuing education based on advanced research and science.

Graduates of our faculty receive a joint diploma approved by the Higher Education Council (YÖK). Our program is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools (WDOMS) and our students can participate in USMLE examinations with ECFMG certification. This situation catalyses our entery our entry into our rightful place in the list of international medical schools.

Today, we embrace students from many parts of the world. At EMU, our students have the opportunity to become a part of a multicultural environment and contribute to this, which help them cultivate empathy, understanding and respect towards differences and diversity.

Medicine requires lifelong learning. Our aim is to train physicians who adopt good medical practices and who make a difference with their qualities. Our graduates will lead the way for health solutions, demonstrate the highest ethical and analytical standards and adopt the most advanced technology in their daily practice.

Once again I would like to welcome you on this qualified , continuous and beautiful journey. I am proud of all of you and wish you a success in your education life.
