Physiotherapist constitute a very special occupational group. From a baby's first steps to an adult relearning to walk after a stroke and the return of a professional athlete to competition, it liberates people from many different fields of life. Physiotherapists are interested in preserving and increasing the quality of life, preventing disease and the predisposing conditions, and treating current disorders and their rehabilitation.

Our Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department within our Health Sciences Faculty has graduated its first students in the 2016 – 2017 training year and aims to train physiotherapists that will play an active role in training,

management and research, contribute to scientific developments, and become well-known globally in the physiotherapy and rehabilitation area

Being a Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation specialist is among the most preferred occupations in the world at present, making entry very competitive. Our aim as the Istinye University Health Sciences Faculty's Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department is to make the best use of our highly qualified faculty to graduate physiotherapists that are adequately trained for both theoretical work and clinical applications. Istinye University provides its students the opportunity to participate in an unpaid internship period at more than 30 hospitals with advanced technology such as “Liv Hospital”, “Medical Park” and “VM Medical Park” so that they can use the theoretical training they received from our experienced and specialized faculty for practical applications. Our successful graduates will be able to find the opportunity to work at the “MLPCare Group” that includes the abovementioned hospitals within its framework.
