Scientific Network


Scientific Network in Izmir Province


Our faculty has collaborations with national and international research centers that are important in their field. By mutual agreements, our students will have chance to work in certain laboratories of Izmir Biogenome Center (IBG), which is an important nearby international research center. In addition, other universities in Izmir province, such as Izmir Institute of Technology, Dokuz Eylul University, and Ege University, will be supportive for our research environment.


Summer internships in our international scientific collaborator universities


Our students will be able to attend summer internships both in basic research and clinics. These summer internships can be performed in selected laboratories of the universities that we collaborate with, as well as in selected laboratories within our scientific network.
Erasmus student internship mobility program is one of the programs that support funding for summer internships. Within the scope of this program, our students will have chance to apply to our contractual European universities for their summer internships. For Erasmus student internship program, students first need to contact with the office of international affairs in our university. Click for Detailed information.

Among the universities that we have bilateral contracts, the ones with faculty of medicine are listed below.


We are still in contact with several other universities as well, in order to extend our collaborations within this scope.


Other Summer Internship Programs


Students will arrange their summer internship programs themselves. However, our faculty members will guide our students in several issues from laboratory options to scholarships.

​ Below you can find the details of several summer internship programs in USA, Europe and other countries although internship programs that our students can participate for 2nd and 3rd year scientific studies are not limited with these options. However, we believe that these programs will guide our students in the best way at the beginning.
