While being admitted as a member of the medical profession, I swore Hippocratic oath to solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my life to the service of humanity; practice my profession with conscience and dignity; maintain the honor and the noble traditions of the medical profession; not permit considerations of religion-nationality-race, politics, socioeconomic orientation to intervene between my duty and my patient.
I became a pathologist as I believe that PATHOLOGY is not only the basis of medicine, but also correct histopathological diagnosis is important and necessary for correct clinical management. I love to act as diagnostician, teacher and investigator.
Knowing that research using money/time-consuming molecular technics necessitates well defined pathology background and appropriate collaborative work to have an impact on the scientific field and patient wellness, I continued my way with PhD dealing on molecular pathology.
I decided to be scientist while I was entering Ankara Fen Lisesi (a special highschool teaching specifically science located at Ankara). I have always tried to be questioning, unprejudiced, unbiased but criticizing, realistic and reproducible during my scientific research and my principal personal motto has been to be a responsible scientist with deep respect to science’s greatness.
I continue my diagnostician, teacher and researcher life on neoplastic diseases in general and on the pathology of gynecologic malignant tumors specifically throughout the world.
I strongly believe that my family-daughters-sons-grandchildren and my friends are my most valuable treasures.
