Within the scope of this project, activities have been initiated to bring together our health professionals who wish to take part in international health education tourism, regardless of whether they work in public, private institutions or universities in our country, and our health facilities with advanced, technological infrastructure with foreign health professionals.


In cooperation with the General Directorate of Public Hospitals of the Ministry of Health, it is aimed to include public hospitals, especially city hospitals, in international health professional training programs and to introduce their strong infrastructure.


Accordingly, foreign healthcare professionals who wish to receive vocational healthcare training to increase their knowledge and experience in our hospitals, which provide services in our country with advanced technological infrastructure, and qualified and expert healthcare professionals, will be able to submit their applications to us by filling out the international healthcare vocational training request form below.


The submitted applications will be evaluated by our experts and we will get back to you as soon as possible regarding the training program, trainers, and training fee.

USHAŞ Academy has developed several projects to support international health tourism services in Türkiye and started to implement some of these projects with its business partners and project stakeholders. In this scope, a Volunteer Health Ambassadors Training Cooperation Protocol has been signed between Ankara University and USHAŞ, and activities are being carried out to inform associate, undergraduate and graduate international students of the University about Türkiye’s health infrastructure, health system and health tourism activities, to increase their diversity in relevant subjects and to become volunteer health ambassadors of Türkiye when they are back to their countries.
