Biography

I was born on October 1, 1980 in Istanbul. I completed my primary and secondary education in Sinop Anatolian High School. I started my medical education at Istanbul University Istanbul Faculty of Medicine in 1998 and graduated in 2004 by entering the top ten with honors. I received my pediatrics education between 2005 and 2010 in Bakırköy Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital, which is the largest hospital in Istanbul in the area with an average of 45,000 births per year. I did my compulsory service between October 2010 and April 2012 at Kastamonu Taşköprü State Hospital as a pediatrician. After completing my compulsory service, I worked at Acıbadem International Hospital as a pediatrician in charge of Neonatal Intensive Care for 1 year. In order to become a pediatric cardiologist, which has been my dream since I was a student, I became the 24th in Turkey in 2013 in the subspecialization entrance exam, which is a central exam attended by more than 1000 pediatricians, and I started my education in Istanbul University Istanbul Medical Faculty, where I also received my medical education. In the last year of my subspecialization education, I won the 1st place in the award-winning knowledge competition held between new specialists and fellows at the 16th National Pediatric Cardiology Congress. As a pediatric cardiologist, my first assignment was in Samsun, the largest city in the Black Sea region. In the state hospital where I worked for 4 years, I examined an average of 50-60 patients a day and evaluated a large number of babies with congenital heart disease who were referred from the surrounding provinces. This process gave me serious clinical experience. After working as a specialist for 4 years, I was invited by my professors to Istanbul Medical Faculty as an academician in August 2021. I am still working as a pediatric cardiologist and academician at Istanbul Medical Faculty. I work especially in the field of advanced imaging methods, fetal echocardiography and heart transplantation. Among my duties are clinical research, student education, assistant training, and fellow training. Diagnostic and therapeutic angiography, cardiovascular surgery intensive care consultations, pediatrics and newborn consultations and councils are included in my routine work program every week, apart from the very intensive outpatient service with an average of 15000 patients per year.
