Marmara University Turkey

Marmara University Turkey

Two monumental structures catch our attention on the seashore that connects Kadikoy to Üsküdar when looking from Emionu.  One of these is the Süleymaniye Barracks, mantioned in an earlier chapter, and the second is Marmara University Medichal Scahool. The transformation from madrasa education in the Ottoman era to modern medical education on March 14, 1827 was acknowledged with the opening of schools called the Tıphane and Cerrahhane-i Amire. It is for this reason that March 14 was declared and is stiil celebrated as the Medical Holiday in Turkey.

The firts modern medical schools of the Turkish Republic, later to be called the Mekteb-i Tıbbiye-i Adliye-i Şahane existed in various  parts of the country. The construction of the present Marmara University Haydarpaşa Campus, with its stunning architecture, began during the reign of Sultan Abdulhamid II in 1894. It was originally intended to be the Medical Faculty and opened for education in 1903. With this instituion all the medical schools, which were very scattered, from one district to the next, were collected under one roof in a modern campus. The building has been very important for the history of modern medical education because it has witnessed many important events in medical histry.

Actually, I don’t know is there a age limit or not… You have to ask it Marmara University. Because, I graduated from Istanbul University and I didn’t get a grant or scholarship. Do you know how you can reach to Marmara University?
