Yeditepe University Brochure - 2023 - 2024

Our students who start their pre-clinical training by working on robot patients in Simulation Laboratories work on real patients at the training clinics that are highly developed in terms of physical possibilities under sterile conditions during their training. At our faculty, having 5 operating rooms where patients are operated under local and general anesthesia, our students can monitor operations in the operating rooms through intra oral and extra oral cameras from the conference hall and classrooms and ask questions to the operator.
