- Inside the Campus
The university’s main campus at Buca but faculties that include health are located in Inciraltı Campus. There are just medicine and nursery students so inside the campus there are only health classroom buildings, labs, a research center called Bioizmir (İzmir Health Technologies Development and Accerelator) and a international genome center called iBG İzmir (Izmir International Biomedicine and Genome Institute) and of course our hospital. There are a few cafes and restaurants, and an indoor gym center. You can see the places in the map below.
