Edirne Health Services Vocational School started its academic teaching process in 1988 after the decision made at the meeting of the Institute of Higher Education on the 24th of November in 1987 and by the declaration of the addition of the educational programs within the Edirne Vocational School, namely Anesthesia, Medical Documentation and Secretarial Work, Medical Laboratory and Nursing, to our school including new academic programs such as Radiology, Audiometry and Prothesis-Orthesis. The Nursing Program was transferred to Edirne Vocational School of Health since 1997.
The educational programs that were started in our school –Radiology, Anesthesia, Audiometry, Prothesis-Ortesis, Medical Documentation and Secretarial Work and Medical Laboratory, aim to bring up the human force (Health Technician) that is needed for a better health services facility and also to satisfy the requirement for the assistant health workers needed by our country. In the Prothesis-Orthesis department, it is possible to produce assistant-helper-equipments for the patients who have disorders in their body for various reasons by which they will feel themselves more comfortable in their daily lives
Currently, we have enough classrooms and offices both for our staff and our students. There is also appropriate educational material, equipment and other devices for each program and they are made use of accordingly.
As our school is located at the Güllapoğlu area of the university, students mainly use the dormitory of Higher Education that is situated in the same area.
Our school is located within the Güllapoğlu area of the university together with Sabancı Cultural Center, dining hall, classroms and a cafeteria. The minibuses from the city center go through the campus and school therefore this makes the transportation easier for the students.
Two professors, two assistant professors and four lecturers have been working at the school. Additionally, 56 students at the Prothesis-Orthesis, 65 students at the Radiology, 58 students at the Audiometry, 82 students at the Anesthesia, 84 students at the Medical Laboratory and 72 students at the Medical Documentation and Secretarial Work have been continuing their education with the total number of 417.
