Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation


Dear Students,

Demand for health services in our country is continuously increasing. The main reasons for this are population growth and people’s desire to live longer. As in the rest of the world, our efforts to raise qualified academik and clinical staff in order to meet this demand have gained a great speed. Moreover, the rising standard of living leads to the spread of demand for education. Factors such as the length of the total study duration, the globalisation of education, a demand for a higher level of education for eduacated parents’ children, technological developments and economic growth keep the need for high quality and widespread education on the agenda.

The Istanbul Medipol University, which we are proud of being a member of, and the School of Health Sciences, which is a valuable part of it, have combined the realities and needs of our country with universal values ​​and have gone on a journey of full confidence. Although Medipol University  is a very young University, it has gained an identity that has been appreciated. While walking towards the goal of achieving greater achievements, each member of our University and our faculty works with great devotion, and the goals we aim to achieve in this way are growing and increasing our excitement and determination.

Dear students
Today and tomorrow of our faculty are structured with your hands and efforts. As you graduate and get responsibilities in the most prestigious points in our country and in the world, our face will be bleached and our pride will be the biggest force in achieving bigger works.
