Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ stated that 340 students will receive education at Çekerek Fuat Oktay Vocational School of Health Services in five programs in the 2021-2022 academic year. Our Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ said: “We aimed to increase the continuous quality and number of international students in education and training, to add a different dimension to R&D studies, to add an international level to scientific activities on this basis, to specialize and to become a brand university. On this basis, we were announced on January 23, 2020 as a specialized university with regional development-oriented goals. Universities have two basic elements. To train future professionals in education and to produce knowledge by carrying out scientific studies. Yozgat Bozok University, which was an education-oriented university until 2020, has now started to manage the processes of being an enterprise-oriented university where information turns into technology and university-industry cooperation is experienced. On this basis, we have planted hemp in our campus area and Boğazlıyan Vocational School area, in terms of our specialization. We have produced many prototype products with hemp additives. The number of our students is around 22 thousand. While there were 140 international students among these students on the basis of internationalization in 2019, this number has reached 700 as of today.
In the meantime, we established our distance education center and took significant steps in distance education. We focused on TÜBİTAK-2209 projects on the basis of meeting science with our students, who are the future of this country.
With the support of the businessman Bilal Şahin, we have implemented computer laboratories, landscaping works of the campus and important projects that will change the face of the campus. We have set the goal of continuous work and progress on this path. We will continue to work with perseverance and determination. We congratulate the first graduates of our Vocational School of Health Services, wish them continued success and thank our Vice President Fuat Oktay, Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Security Ertuğrul sosyal, our Governor, Mayor, District Governors and Mayors and our dear parents for honoring us on this happy day.”
In his speech, Yozgat Governor Ziya Polat said, "Our university has always been with us with the projects that paved the way for our Yozgat with years of experience. We are conscious of seeing our university with us with projects that will add value to our people, under the leadership of our Rector."
Fuat Oktay, our Vice President of the Republic, stated that they are proud and happy to recruit new healthcare staff, who have made a name for themselves all over the world with their success and sacrifices. Stating that the field of health is one of the most sacred professions throughout human history, Oktay stated that the value of healthcare workers who sacrifice themselves, especially during the pandemic, is much better understood.
Referring to Turkey's achievements in the health system, Oktay said, "At a time when the health systems of many countries collapsed, we were able to successfully continue our struggle with both our existing and newly opened hospitals, our health personnel working day and night, and our health infrastructure."
Fuat Oktay also emphasized that they also attach importance to specialization and strong academic performance in higher education.
"I congratulate the Rector of Yozgat Bozok University, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ, who started to make a name with R&D studies, as well as administrators, all academic members, students, employees and graduates. I wish you continued success. Noting that the relevant institutions are trying not to victimize any student in need of accommodation and that they continue with their dormitory placements, Oktay said, "I would like to express once again what our President also expressed after the cabinet meeting. Dormitories with a bed capacity of more than 110 thousand, which are under construction, will be put into service.
Oktay thanked Yozgat Bozok University Rector Prof. Dr. Ahmet Karadağ and lecturers for their efforts and wished the 2021-2022 academic year to be beneficial.
