Academic Hospital continues to climb up in the health industry with its strong, professional, consistent and innovative academic staff. As Academic Hospital, a hospital that offers healthcare at world standards, we aim to offer patients top of the range diagnosis and treatment opportunities thanks to our modern instruments and infrastructure.
A “first” in Turkey: Foundation and Doctor Collaboration
The Academic Hospital, an affiliate of Marmara University Medical School Foundation (MUMSF), continues to provide services since being established in 1997. As of January 2014, our establishment has undergone restructuring in collaboration with its academics and doctors. As is, it has created a new model partnered with a Medical School Foundation and its doctors, and founded a “first” in Turkey. Our hospital, in which our staff is invested 100%, will continue providing quality and most importantly ethical healthcare to patients for many years to come.
With the support and strength provided by MUMSF, our staff comprises of over 60 academics, all experts in their own department. In addition to its broad academic staff, 29 specialist physicians, all established in their branches, also serve at the hospital. The hospital also has a staff of 300, majority of which have over 10 years experience. Our most significant feature is that we maintain and preserve a stable and consistent staff structure; the turnover is minimal.
Academic Hospital – Harvard Medical School Collaboration
Our hospital, the pioneer academic private hospital of Turkey, with a vision to offer global developments to our citizens as and when they develop, signed a partnership agreement with Harvard Medical School in February 2012. Thanks to this agreement, our patients will be able to receive professional support from Partners Health Care (system operator of hospitals under Harvard University) during their diagnosis and treatment process. Our patients will be able to receive treatment from Harvard University group hospitals via Academic Hospital, as and when necessary. Thanks to this programme, patients of Academic Hospital will be able to receive treatment planning and care at world standards. To date, numerous patients have received treatment through the Harvard Medical School partnership in fields such as medical oncology, urology oncology, pathology, haematology and pulmonology.
