Turkish medicine is rightfully considered one of the most progressive in the world. The country is in the top ten in demand in terms of the development of medical tourism. Even German citizens go here to undergo treatment and carry out the necessary operations, who receive the same highly qualified medical care in Turkey, but pay 2 times less.
The government of the Republic of Turkey allocates 10% of the country's budget (and this is a lot of money) for the development of the healthcare system, equipping hospitals and clinics, treating patients, training doctors, and pharmaceutical developments within the state. Physician is one of the most prestigious, respected and highly paid professions in Turkey.
When moving to Turkey before the expiration of the one-year period, you must take out medical insurance (SGK, sigorta). The presence of SGK is mandatory for everyone, both local residents and foreigners. In addition, it will be impossible for foreign citizens to obtain a residence permit (residence permit) without it.
Usually the employing company deals with the insurance, but there are exceptions. Self-employed citizens will also have to conclude a health insurance contract on their own. To do this, you need to contact the social protection fund - Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu İl Müdürlüğü. Women who are married to a Turkish citizen have priority. His sigorta will apply to the spouse and children under 18 years of age.
The cost of insurance is from 15 to 75 euros per month. This difference in price is due to the level of the citizen's income: the higher it is, the more expensive SGK. Temporarily unemployed persons are provided with social benefits.
Insurance covers the cost:
In Turkey, there is no concept of “local doctor”. If it is necessary to receive medical care, the patient either independently goes to the doctor, or, in extreme cases, calls an ambulance at a single number 112.
A citizen can contact:
If there is a contract, treatment in public institutions will be absolutely free, in private hospitals - partially free or paid. Interestingly, in Ozel Hastane you can get not only a standard set of services for SGK, but even carry out laser vision correction, IVF, etc.
Very few people have heard of Turkish education, but it is quite popular. Every year tens of thousands of students from other countries enter the universities of Turkey. Our Russian students also go to study in Turkey. After all, this is not only an interesting journey, but also useful years of life that money cannot buy. Even after an ordinary university, a person leaves with deep knowledge of his profession, with knowledge of English and Turkish, and also has many friends not only in Turkey, but also from other countries. And in this article, we have prepared for you 5 of the coolest reasons why you need to give your children a Turkish education.
The entire education system in Turkey is a bit like the American one. The study is carried out in several stages:
1. Preschool education. Optional. State kindergartens are accepted from the age of 3.
2. The first stage of primary school. Education in a public school is compulsory. Children go to school at the age of 6. Education is free not only for local residents, but also for foreigners, but only in Turkish. Private Russian schools charge an average of $ 600 per month
3. Second stage of primary school
We figured out a little about the school, now let's talk about Turkish universities. There are different training systems in Turkey, both for 4 years and for 2 years. You can choose both a specialty and a bachelor's degree.
Let's analyze by city which universities accept foreign students.
1. Istanbul: Bosphorus University, Sabanci University, Koç University, Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul University.
2. Ankara: Bilkent University, Middle East Technical University, Hacettepe University, Ankara University
3. Adana: Chukurov University
In Turkish universities, before entering, you need to pass an examination in subjects and in knowledge of the Turkish language. The cost of training will be $ 500-1500 annually.
An international company that deals with medical tourism in Turkey, World Wide International Aesthetic provides patients from different countries with the highest quality services in the field of plastic and aesthetic surgery, urology and gynecology, cosmetology, hair transplant, orthopedics, cancer treatment and artificial fertilization. All procedures carried out both in the very center of World Wide International Aesthetic and in the blades with which the company works, comply with international quality standards and treatment protocols.

Turkey is one of the five leading countries in the field of medical tourism. This is confirmed by 43 clinics with international JCI accreditation. On average, Turkey receives 700,000 thousand foreign patients a year and the number is only growing. The popularity of the country among the patients of the world has increased due to the high level of medical services. Constant investments (about $ 20,000,000/year), reorganization of equipment and advanced training of doctors have made Turkey a serious competitor to such medical giants as Germany, Israel and the United States.
The speed of diagnosis is one of the reasons why patients choose clinics in Turkey. There is no need to wait for several weeks to carry out, for example, an MRI or PET-CT examination, since the examination process takes 3-4 days.
A person can feel the comfort from the moment they arrive in the country. He is met at the airport and provided with a transfer to the clinic or hotel. After placement, each patient is assigned a personal coordinator and, if necessary, an interpreter. Each room has its own bathroom, Wi-Fi, TV and a comfortable bed. In the case of hospitalization, food is included in the cost of treatment and involves the preparation of a specialized diet. It should be noted that in the presence of an accompanying person, the clinic provides him with a separate room or sofa free of charge next to the patient being treated. And in this case, the price includes meals for two people. With simple diagnoses, Turkish hospitals can accept medical statements without translation, which speeds up the decision to travel for diagnosis or treatment.
Turkish hospitals operate according to American protocols and use drugs that are manufactured in the United States or replace them with certified Turkish counterparts. This means that patients are treated based on the latest medical advances: targeted drugs are selected that have fewer side effects (do not affect healthy tissues and organs).
The clinics are equipped with the latest generation devices: PET-CT, MRI 3 Tesla, Cyber and Gamma knives, TrueBeam, Da Vinci robotic surgeon, etc. Many patients from the CIS countries, for example, with an oncological diagnosis, get a second chance at life here, although in their own country the diagnosis could sound like a death sentence. Due to access to the latest equipment, constant modernization and an integrated approach, the recovery rate in oncology treatment in Turkey reaches 80%.
“We were contacted by a woman from Libya, whose doctors suspected breast cancer. Of the studies at home, only ultrasound was carried out. Therefore, after talking with the woman, we sent a request to the Koç clinic (Turkey), where the treatment was planned, and a few days later the patient went for examination. At the clinic, she underwent laboratory tests (tumor markers, biochemical and genetic tests), and also underwent MRI, PET-CT, and biopsy.
Based on the results of the examination, the medical council confirmed the presence of stage 2A breast cancer. The decision was made to perform a mastectomy (removal of the breast). The patient was very worried about the consequences of the operation and psychologists got involved in the case. The work of a psychologist helped the woman cope with stress, and on the same day the doctors performed an operation followed by breast reconstruction (implantation). The patient underwent a rehabilitation course (about 3 weeks) and at the control examination was very pleased with the result of the reconstruction.
This is just one example of a successful treatment, but Turkish doctors show excellent results in many areas. The comfort of the patient during the stay is also an important point. Turkey does an excellent job in this regard, organizing diagnostics and treatment according to the “All inclusive” system.
The strong areas of diagnosis and treatment in Turkey are not only oncology, but also transplantology, neurosurgery, IVF, general and plastic surgery. For example, the Koç clinic holds the leading position in the field of transplantation. There is a team of transplant specialists headed by Professor Munci Kolayoglu. The clinic's doctors transplant liver and kidneys, as well as bone marrow. During their practice, doctors have transplanted about 6,000 organs, and the success rate of operations is 90-98.9%.
Turkey is a country with highly developed medicine. The health care system of the Republic of Turkey is based on 100% coverage of the entire population with social health insurance, provided by the state and private sector employers.
Turkey is constantly working to improve health care and medical services. It is no secret to anyone that medical tourism is one of the most active areas of tourism in Turkey. People from all over the world come here to cure their ailments. Why? First, Turkish medicine is one of the best in the world today.
Secondly, treatment and operations in Turkey are much cheaper than in other countries of the world with a higher quality of services. Thirdly, Turkey is famous for its many natural healing sources (thermal, mineral, mud, etc.
) in almost every corner of this country, so you can get healthier here even without visiting any medical institutions. Fourth, honey.
tourism is supported at the state level, - while undergoing treatment here, you can get a substantial discount on the general check, because the Turkish government will pay for your airfare to any city in Turkey where the clinic of your choice is located! How? You can find out here!
So, Turkish medicine in figures and facts.
Transplantation in Turkey, which began its development with kidney, liver and heart transplantation, has moved to a new level. Since 2011, the state clinic "Akdeniz" has successfully performed 5 face transplant operations. The operations are carried out by the world-famous plastic surgeon Professor Omer Ozkan and his wife. And this is not our usual defect correction. The donor's face is completely transplanted.
To do this, it is necessary to take a donor material from a deceased donor along with cartilage tissue, nerve fibers, blood vessels and muscles and transplant, after removing the damaged tissue and suturing the smallest capillaries, vessels and nerves. Of the five transplanted individuals, only one rejected after a year and a half due to a secondary infection.
The same surgeon with his team of doctors is performing a successful hand transplant, the last of which was performed on February 2, 2016. Three similar operations were carried out. Of course, there are more people in need. However, the relatives of the deceased do not so often agree to the collection of such organs for transplantation.
