The Medical Laboratory Techniques Program aims to train laboratory technicians who are familiar with basic laboratory techniques and who have a good command of modern techniques to work in the departments (i.e. biochemistry, hematology, microbiology, blood bank, endocrinology, parasitology) of many institutions containing medical laboratories. This program includes students taking theoretical knowledge and taking "Clinical Practice" courses in the laboratories of competent hospitals such as Medical Faculty Hospitals, State Hospitals, Private Hospitals through the lecturer. With the growing number of hospitals in recent years, our students will be able to meet the demand for qualified healthcare services and personnel. The Medical Laboratory Techniques Program, which began accepting students in the 2019-2020 academic year, has a two-year education period. First-year students, who take basic medical science courses alongside vocational courses, are required to complete a summer internship at the end of the year. In the second year, students will take professional practice courses at hospitals. Students are also prepared for life through elective courses in the social and cultural fields. Our goal is to train and employ health technicians who are fully equipped in their profession, have a positive attitude in their professional life, have strong communication skills, respect for ethical values, are prone to team work, can solve problems.
In order to study in an associate (2-year, short cycle) or undergraduate program (4-year, first cycle) in a higher education institution in Turkey, students have to take a university entrance exam administered by Student Selection and Placement Center (ÖSYM) and the students are placed by the same exam administering center (ÖSYM) to the universities according to the score they get from this examination. According to the Higher Education Law, for vocational high school graduates to apply for placement in two-year vocational college programs which are compatible with their high school majors, without an entrance examination.These students are placed centrally by ÖSYM according to the type of vocational high schools they graduated and their grade point averages (GPA).
Students who are eligible to enroll in the Medical Laboratory Techniques Program are those who have completed secondary education or have received an equivalent education abroad and have achieved the required score in the national university exam or who have transferred from another higher education institution. Regarding the academic recognition of the past education of these students, Yüksek İhtisas University for Associate Degree and Undergraduate Education and Examinations and the Transfer Directive are taken as basis.
After graduation from the Medical Laboratory Techniques Associate Degree Programs, as a result of Vertical Transfer Examination (DGS), it is possible to study in the programs of Biology, Bioengineering, Biotechnology, Biotechnology and Molecular Biology, Genetics and Bioengineering, Nursing, Nursing and Health Services, Molecular Biology and Genetics undergraduate programs.
In the program; Various assessment methods such as midterm exam, homework, practice, project, professional practice, summer internship and final exam are applied. Applications such as written exams, multiple-choice exams, oral exam homework, internship performances and lecture presentations can be made in the evaluations. To graduate from the program, the cumulative grade point average must be at least 2.00. The grade of a course is determined as a result of the evaluation of the above elements and given as a letter. The letter grades and the coefficient of each grade are given below.
