Once you visit the department of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at Koç University School of Medicine, you can rest assured that your child is in safe hands. We tend to each case as a team under the light of evidence-based knowledge, up-to-date research data and the latest technology, and make sure that each patient and their parents’ features are taken into consideration. It matters to us that not only our physicians, but also the nurses, dietitians and psychologists in our team improve their knowledge, for which purpose they take part in training courses abroad. We do assume ourselves as part of the treatment, and accordingly strive to keep in constant contact with children and their parents and be a close relative to them. Parents of children treated under our supervision are enabled to contact us whenever they need assistance. Realizing that children will one day grow into adolescents, we collaborate closely with the adolescent endocrinology branch, and turn eligible patients over within the framework of the “Adult Transition Program”.
In addition to these, we aspire to raise societal awareness about diabetes, obesity and early adolescence, and support families who cannot access our services by visiting them in other provinces or organizing online training courses. Last but not least, we contribute to the relevant national programs by taking part in the various committees of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes Association and the Ministries of education and Health.
