The Turkey trip was very enjoyable, with the visit to Bursa being the highlight of the week. The hospital visit was very informative and opened up possibilities of doing our post-grad studies in the country, as the facilities were very impressive. As for future trips, Italy or Spain would be great.
I really enjoyed the trip to Istanbul and the itinerary that was planned. Visiting the hospital was really great as I got to see and find out about the dental field in Turkey and how it is run. The tours per day were amazing and I feel like we covered all the areas that were important.
Overall, I did enjoy my trip to Turkey.
It was well organized and well managed throughout the days.
Enjoyed seeing multiple tourist attractions and visiting the private hospital as part of our trip.
I enjoyed our Bursa visit the most!
I’m a MBBS student of Phase 1, 2018, who accompanied the other group members for the Turkey trip. I would like to thank for the great opportunity. These amazing 5 days, with our classmates, let us take a breath of relieve from our college stress. The trip began with a visit to a hill, with an amazing view and breezy weather. It was a great start of the journey, along with the interaction among different program students of the college. The second day was remarked by the visit to ACIBADEM ALTUNIZAD HOSPITAL , which ranks in the top most private healthcare facilities in Turkey. The smooth functioning of the hospital along with the cooperative doctors and nurses made the visit with interesting and knowledgeable. The next few day were all about the beauty of Istanbul and visits to the famous and archaic monuments, with a legendary history. From Hagia Sophia to The Grand Bazar, the beauty of the country was reflected in every element around us. The journey was made very easy and fun by our tour guide, Mr Sinan and our group leader, Ms Burcu, who have been really kind and understanding. This trip gives us an idea of the world we are oblivious to. I will be looking forward to more trip organised by the university.
My name is Maryam Patrick John student of BPT Second year. The trip to Turkey is a great experience for me and an eye opening for me. I learned a lot. Acibadem hospital is the best hospital I have ever seen in my life, is very beautiful, the waiting room, wash room, staff hospitality and peacefullness of the emveroment. I saw a lot of machine that I have never seen before, the radiotherapy machine is one thing I have always wanted to see and I saw it. The next thing and enjoyed is the trip to Bursa --wow is the best in Turkey. Their street food is amazing and cheap, things are cheap also and the people are friendly. Ms Burcu made sure we are comfortable, happy and she made sure we go to the best places in Istanbul and also Bursa turkey. Life is easy here transportation is good and cheap
I really enjoyed our trip to Istanbul, which was a good mix between an educational and a leisurely experience. We were able to visit some of the most famous and interesting landmarks of the city such as the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia, as well as visit Acibadem, one of the very well established hospitals in the city. Our visit to Acibadem in particular was very enlightening as we got a taste of the healthcare system and practices of Turkey. We were lucky enough to be able to meet with one of the neurosurgeons currently working there who gave us a short explanation about one of their core tumor suppressing treatments and this was truly a wonderful experience. The city and all its sights was a very culturally vibrant experience where we were able to get a taste of the Turkish way of life. This was definitely an experience I will never forget and would recommend to students in the future.
