What is Medical Club?
Yeditepe Medical Club (YMC) is a student community that was established with the initiative of the students of the Faculty of Medicine in our school. It aims to organize events in the field of medicine, to advance those events and to transform the faculty students into both talented and socially responsible doctors in their fields.
YMC has Yeditepe University branches of TURKMSIC and EMSA societies and regularly participates in the activities of these two societies. While our club carries out social responsibility activities at the local level, it also sends representatives to national and international meetings to contribute to the progress of the field of Medicine. At the same time, our students have the opportunity to do national or international research and internship exchanges through our club.
Every student of Yeditepe University Faculty of Medicine is a natural member of YMC. Students have the right to participate in every event organized by the club and take part in the organization of these events.
