Welcome to web site of Koç University School of Medicine.
Our faculty was established with the notion of creating new aspects in teaching of medicine. We are aiming to raise medical doctors who give particular importance to research, generation of unchartered knowledge, and contributing to public health and wellbeing.
The first three years of your education will take place in our Rumeli Feneri campus. The following years of your medical education which concentrates on clinical skills education will be actualized in Koç University’s Training and Research Hospital in Topkapi.

Koç University İşbank Center for Infectious Diseases was founded in December 20 of 2020, in the middle of devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
Koç University School of Medicine founded in 2010, while we were living in the first pandemic of the 21th century, which was Influenza A H1N1. The newly founded School of Medicine with full of enthusiasm, identified three major challenging research areas to distinguish its existence. Emerging infections was one of these three major challenging areas. By this decision, Biosafety level 3 (BSL-3) laboratory was included in the construction of the new hospital building which was completed in 2015.
One of the biggest turning points of my life started with preferring the Koç University. Besides the education I got here, my friends are the reason to always remember my university years with regard. Values added by every single one of my fellow graduates to my life is priceless, thanks to their regard of development of others besides theirs. Spending first three years of your university life at the Rumelifeneri Campus, besides giving you a rich and colourful university life compared to other schools of medicine, helps you to become a multi-dimensional individual. A medicine student at the Koç University School of Medicine can also be an amateur radio producer, a mentor to newcomers, and a lab researcher. I recommend everyone who succeeded to get to the Koç University to discover new horizons.Mustafa Mert Metin
For an individual, university years correspond to a time in which he/she is transformed irreversibly into his/her self. I am grateful to have spent those years here. Koç University and the School of Medicine made me a much better person than I imagined, both socially, scientifically, and humanely.Ecem Özyaprak
