general practitioners, a neurologist, gynecologists, ophthalmologists, psychiatrists, a dermatologist,
an orthopedist, a dentist, a radiologist, an ear, nose and throat specialist, nurses, emergency
medical technicians and a paramedic.
A physician and nurse are on duty at the Main and East Campus Health Centers 24 hours a day, including
weekends. In cases of emergency, university ambulances accompanied by Health Center doctors and nurses are
available 24 hours a day to take patients to nearby hospitals.
The Centers have two in-house laboratories for immediate medical tests such as blood counts, urine
analysis, blood chemistry and a unit for X-ray and ultrasound exams. Prescription medication can be
purchased from the Main Campus pharmacy or at pharmacies in Ankuva Bilkent Center or on Tunus Blvd.
