School of Dentistry

Our curriculum provides students with opportunities to learn the fundamental principles significant to the entire body of dental knowledge. Students are expected to learn basic health sciences, get proficiency in clinical skills, and develop an understanding of professional and ethical principles as well as reasoning and learning critical decision-making skills that will enable them to implement the dental knowledge base.

The priority of IMU School of Dentistry is to ensure a high level of education by providing the students with the most up-to-date information and technological development. We, therefore, intend to provide research opportunities for students and staff and, thus, to contribute to academic development at an international level.

The duration of education in School of Dentistry is five years, preceded by one year of English language teaching for those who fail in a proficiency exam. During subsequent dental education, minimally 30% of the courses are instructed in English.

The first year courses comprises lectures and laboratory, and preclinical activities in basic sciences, dental anatomy, occlusion, and dental materials. In the second year, students are expected to develop additional preclinical skills, learn how basic science principles are applied to the clinical settings, and get involved in clinical applications. Students who complete the first two years are awarded a basic medical sciences diploma. In the third, fourth, and fifth years, students practice main clinical treatments with concomitant lectures that refine technical and diagnostic skills. Students are required to take a minimum of two electives that are chosen from courses offered by all departments, including courses of independent study, research, and special topics.

Recently inaugurated within the Golden Horn Campus, IMU Dental Hospital is one of the largest ones in the area, and it offers impeccable service to its patients.

School of Law

The School of Law aims to raise professionals who have been equipped with a solid understanding of law and legitimacy, and who can contribute to society as lawyers, attorneys, prosecutors, and judges.

The duration of education is four years, and the language of education is 30% English and 70% Turkish. Enthusiastic students are also offered integrated intensive English language training courses.

IMU Law students are also encouraged to attend certificate programs abroad during their university studies. With its expert lecturers and a rapidly developing library, IMU School of Law will become a prominent faculty in which national and international students will obtain a qualified law education.

Synchronizing the teaching of the normative fields of jurisprudence together with teaching of its philosophical and scientific aspects will contribute not only to deepening the student’s knowledge and facilitating their shift into the ground, but it will also equip them with critical thinking skills.

International School of Medicine

Student-centered educational system is our main strategy in International School of Medicine.

Dear Students,

Thank you for your interest in the International Medical School at Istanbul Medipol University. We are confident that we offer you an outstanding medical education which is proven by the overwhelming interest by your peers in previous years.

Our mission has been to educate problem solver, innovative, pioneer and scientist physicians who are aware of the societal and contemporary health problems. We prioritize a student-centered and integrated education model by which we hope to enable students to discover, acquire, process and present information dictated by both the needs of the patients and their personal aspirations.

The language of our entire program is in English. In the preparatory class, the students reach English language proficiency required for professional, academic and societal issues. Afterwards, they start the medical education program, which provides horizontal integration among basic sciences as well as vertical integration between basic sciences and clinical sciences in the preclinical period. During the clinical period, students are provided with field experience and medical exposure through one-on-one training with faculty members in outpatient and inpatient clinics, operating rooms, emergency and intensive care units.

Simultaneously, the students start a theoretically and practically structured research corridor in their first year. The research project may be related to basic or clinic sciences and is conducted in our top-of-the-line research centers and hospitals. At the end of their third year, the students present and publish their research results as a scientific report.

Istanbul Medipol University International Faculty of Medicine, with its distinguished academic staff and comprehensive infrastructure, continues on its way to train physician-scientists who will shape the medical science of the future.

We wish our students as young colleagues a lifetime of success.
