This course was just what we needed in our first year of med school. We were being taught essential medical terms and procedures; by a teacher who made it fun. It was definitely the break I waited for to separate myself from all the crowdedness of lectures and other modules (pbl, ics, etc.).
The most influential aspect of this course was our amazing teacher AyลŸe hocam. Her enthusiasm and passion shone in every single thing she taught.
Also, the content was very relevant, hence useful for the lectures that required going in deeper into a specific topic.
I wouldn't imagine anyone to have taught us this but AyลŸe hoca.

In my opinion, Medical English provides a general knowledge about all lessons that first you learn in med english and afterwards you dive deep in the lectures about it and the subject becomes easier. The best part is terminology which enables us to recognize what does a latin term says even if we dont know it.

Merhaba hocamm😁First of all i wish you a wonderful holiday...i will miss you💕One year passed very quickly without being aware was a year with lots of responsibilities but it was also a great year that i gained many great friends and lecturers like you..thank you for everything...thanks for being with us and always supporting,motivating us were not only our teacher but also like our mother,sister ...thanks for really caring about us and trying to be beneficial and helpful for us....

Medical English course was really beneficial course, especially the terminology and abbreviations this way we can understand some medical terms we see in books,internet or during lectures much easier by linking them with the things we learnt in lectures with you...the only feedback that i can give will be the timing of report writing...may be it could be much earlier and not with terminology part that we could find more time for writing our reports much better...and the last think that i can add is that at the terminology part the exercises would be less or we could do some of them by ourselves at home to practice and check them from answer key that could be provided rather than repeating them during lectures...again thanks for everything💜💚💛

Amidst the madness of our committee lectures, pbl courses and ICS sessions, the 2016-2017 Medical English course was a brief escape. Not because we love learning terminology but because our teacher was fun. She did not come to the class the do her duty, get paid and leave. She came because she was motivated to actually teach us and because she saw us as her family. She was a mother to most of the foreign students who hadn't seen their own in months. Every single lecture had a moment to remember.
The course was very beneficial when it came to our pbl cases and committee exams. I remember we had a pbl case about "bilateral salpingectomy" and everyone knew that there was a surgical removal of an organ on both sides if the body. This was primarily due the terminology taught during the course.
The visuals used were also very helpful. I still remember what a Transurethtal resection of the prostate is because of the video we watched.
If I were to change anything it would be the layout of the book that was used. At times it felt too crowded and tired my eyes. The content and images were fine however.
In summary:
โ€ขAwesome teacher
โ€ขBeneficial for pbl/committee exams
โ€ขEasy and fun to learn due to visuals
โ€ขA welcome break from the madness of the committee system

Thank you for everything hocam

Gd afternoon hocam,
wishing you a great and productive holiday inshaAllah ... Now the medical English course 😎 Ill speak for everyone on this that we definitely loved the course just because of who taught us .. you kept it related to what we learn in our committees as much as you could and that's why we saw it as very useful (especially the terminology part)
Anyway, Ill have two points to make in my humble feedback ... one is that the terminology part was a bit repetitive and the second is that the report writing (even though it was as helpful for us as the terminology part .. if not more) was kind of chronologically misplaced .. yani we would have made much more use out of it if it was before our ICS report writing period .. wouldve prepared us much more for it and we would have done better galiba.
I also recommend the movie "The Doctor" (1991) for the first part of the course because it would help in understanding how doctors should actually deal with their patients and how they should deliver any bad news.

If you're still reading this thank you because I know I wrote too much 😂😂
