Department of Internal Medicine



It is considered that modern medical education in our country began with the “Mekteb-i Tibbiye-i Adliye-i Şahane”, founded in 1839 in order to train military doctors. “Sivil Tıbbiye” (Civil Medicine) was established in 1867 under the name of ”Mekteb-i Tibbiye-i Mülkiye”. In 1909, the two Faculties of Medicine located in the modern building in Haydarpaşa at that period were united under the name of the Faculty of Medicine.


Today, Faculty of Medicine education has become multidisciplinary, and Faculties of Medicine are divided into three main sections. Departments of Basic Medicine are defined as departments of Internal Medicine and Surgical Medicine. Department of Internal Medicine was included in the departments of Internal Medicine. Internal Medicine in itself, is divided into 10-12 sub-disciplines. (Allergy, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, Physiopathology, Gastroenterohepatology, General Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Hematology, Nephrology, Rheumatology, Medical Oncology and Medical Genetics) Cardiology first appeared as a sub-branch of the department of Internal Medicine. However, since the field of specialization is quite wide, today it is considered as a department.



 The mission of the Department of Internal Medicine of T.R Istanbul Arel University Faculty of Medicine is to provide health care by means of high technology in the light of modern scientific developments, on the other hand, to train highly qualified and enlightened physicians who have a say in the international field and who produce universal information.
