The Emergency Service of Koç University Hospital has been admitting patients and training medical school students in emergency medicine since 2014. In 2019, the unit was authorized for training assistants. Currently, the Emergency Service staff consists of an associate professor and 8 emergency medicine specialists.

We aim to offer the highest quality of medical services possible in a compassionate and respectful setting. The mission we have assumed involves integration of services with research and education and taking care of our patients and their family members from an innovative and unmatched perspective of emergency medicine. Regardless of roles undertaken in our team, each staff member strives to provide the support and reliability needed by patients and each other alike. For the purpose of enhancing the value attributed to our patients, our emergency service continues to operate under the most ideal circumstances and in a timely fashion.
Our emergency service welcomes patients with all kinds of technical equipment and physical infrastructure as well as a team of specialized physicians and healthcare personnel. Patients presenting to the emergency medicine clinic go through the standard triage process, and are admitted in due order in accordance with blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature and respiration parameters.
