What do you know about the preparatory year when studying medicine in Turkey?

It is usually agreed that students with a high school diploma should start studying in their chosen specialties, without having to study a preparatory year before university.

This is only applicable in the employment areas in Turkey, although students whose language will be an obstacle to their education must study a preparation year for the language before entering university.

Some Turkish institutions require students to register in medical school to take the TOMER test and obtain a high score.

It is known that the duration of study of human medicine in Turkey is  6  years.

How are scientific plans distributed over years of medical studies in Turkey?

All students should study 6 years in medical specialties, with these six years divided into two parts: 4 years of lectures and theoretical lessons, in which the student learns basic medical sciences: (anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology...) and clinical sciences: (internal surgery...). Those years are equivalent to obtaining a bachelor's degree in college, and the last two years serve as practical lessons in which you receive practical education in the Faculty of Medicine. Once a student completes these six years, he will be able to acquire a medical degree from Turkish universities.

After these six years, students who graduate as general practitioners from certain medical colleges in Turkey have the chance to take the so-called "medical specialty test," which is held at health centers. Then, based on the scores he receives in this examination, he will be eligible to practice in one of two medical specialties: intern medicine or surgery.
