The Message of Our Dean

    Our Faculty was established with the Law No. 3837 dated 11.017.1992 and started giving education in the 1993-1994 academic year by admitting its first students. When it was first established, it began its activities in an area that would be half of a corridor in the Faculty of Dentistry. In 2001, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine moved to its existing building. There are 5 Departments and 20 programs connected to these departments.

    Our faculty continuously develops itself to be a faculty that foresees and solves all problems in the field of Veterinary Medicine, that educates, researches, produces information, that is shown as an example and is honoured to be a member of. It has committed itself to carry out the responsibility of conducting research and contributing it to the society in the best way at universal standards, to establish the balance between the animals that are an indispensable element of humanity and nature, their health, rights, and productivity, to access to information for environmental safety, to produce information, apply, and spread it. While working to be a faculty that constantly renews itself in order to reach international standards in education, it also continues its education and research tasks to solve animal husbandry problems of our region and our country and to find solutions to basic scientific problems.

    Our faculty, which has adopted a student-centered and educational approach that produces solutions to problems, continuously strives to use its sources to increase the quality of its education and create the physical infrastructure that will contribute to the development of our students in the professional field as well. For this purpose, the limited opportunities of the Faculty are used in the best way. It continues to work without interruption to protect animal health and increase productivity, to contribute to the solution of issues such as healthy animals, healthy food, healthy people and public health problems, and to become a more preferred Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.


    On behalf of our Faculty, I would like to thank especially our Rector, Vice Rectors and the Secretary General for their financial and moral contributions by being supportive during making significant progress in education and infrastructure, and in the efforts of continual renewal and progress.
