In 1984, I was appointed as an Assistant Professor. Between 1985 and 1987, I worked as a Clinical Fellow with Prof. Dr. Victor GOMEL, one of the founders of gynecological microsurgery and one of the world’s most famous laparoscopy specialists, at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, CANADA, and received training on reproductive endocrinology, laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, microsurgery and in vitro fertilization. In 1987, I received the title of University Associate Professor and worked on Reproductive Endocrinology, Laparoscopy-Hysteroscopy and In Vitro Fertilization at GATA Gynecology Clinic and established these units, and provided many assistantship and specialist training on these subjects. I was appointed as a Professor in 1993.

In 1995, I was appointed as the Head of the Department of the same clinic. In the same year, I started to work on the establishment of the IVF unit in GATA and led the selection of this IVF Center as a training center by the Ministry of Health.

During my 9-year period as Head of the Department, under the GATA Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Infertility and Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecological Oncology and High-risk Pregnancies Departments were formed into subgroups and he name GATA Gynecology Clinic was heard as a very important clinic in Turkey, both in terms of faculty members and clinics.

I was appointed as a member of the GATA High Scientific Council in 2004 in accordance with the GATA Law, and between 2002 and 2005, I established and worked in the Reproductive Health and Family Planning Services department at the TAF. (Since 2004, an average of 450,000 soldiers have been trained in reproductive health issues such as Family Planning, Maternal Care in Pregnancy, Protection from Sexually Transmitted Diseases, and preventing violence against women.) During the 4-year period I worked as the Coordinator of Reproductive Health and Family Planning Services at the TAF, I traveled all over Turkey 3 times and gave seminars, conferences and briefings.

I also ensured that a fund of 1 Million Euros from the European Union was transferred for this project to the Armed Forces to carry out this service. I served as a speaker and moderator at hundreds of congresses. I have pioneered the efforts to organize Hysteroscopy and IVF Congress both nationally and internationally many times.

With the hysteroscopy courses I organized, I helped more than 1000 specialist physicians to increase their knowledge and experience in this field. I played an active role in the establishment of the Turkish Society of Reproductive Medicine and IVF. I prepared more than 150 internal and external publications and presented more than 60 papers. I wrote 3 books and prepared chapters for more than 20 books. I am one of the physicians who completed the first in vitro fertilization training abroad in Turkey. I have been working on in vitro fertilization and infertility since 1987.

As a result of laparoscopic surgery, medical treatment and IVF treatment, I have contributed to thousands of families having children. I served for many years in the Assisted Reproductive Techniques Commission and Assisted Reproductive Techniques Certificate Examination Commissions of the Ministry of Health AÇSAP (Maternal and Child Health and Family Planning Services) General Directorate. I am currently the Head of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Ufuk University Faculty of Medicine Dr. Rıdvan Ege Hospital and the Director of Centrum Women’s Health and In Vitro Fertilization Center. I am also the president of the Society of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery, which I took part in the establishment phase.
