All Group Florence Nightingale physicians are fully licensed by the Turkish Medical Council to practice their specialty in Turkey. In addition, many are Board Certified in their specialty in the US, Australia or Europe. The Group Florence Nightingale credentialing process requires a formal review of each doctor’s qualifications and track record by the Credentials and Bylaws Committee and the Hospital’s Medical Executive Committee. These reviews take place before a doctor is appointed to the medical staff by the Hospital’s Board of Governors, and reviewed every three years thereafter.
A summary of each of our physician’s qualifications is available on our website. If you would like to review the qualifications or specific experience of your physician in more detail when you arrive, we can arrange for you to do so.
Nurses, pharmacists, imaging and lab technicians must undergo schooling and pass certification exams to obtain licenses to practice at Group Florence Nightingale. Nurses are re-certified at 5-year intervals. Those with special responsibilities, notably ICU nurses, must receive special training and be certified as competent in the specific area of expertise.
