Message from Rector

Dear Visitor,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to BAU International University Batumi.

BAU International University Batumi is a relatively new and vibrant higher educational institution in Georgia, which strives for highest standards of academic excellence. We are registered and operate in Georgia, but the same time we are a part of BAU Global with the head campus in Istanbul, Turkey and 8 other locations across three continents.

BAU International University Batumi runs a MD degree-leading English-instructed program. The majority of our medical students are international and come from many different countries of our region and beyond.

Our Faculty of Medicine operates in conjunction with a modern high-tech teaching hospital. Our faculty members come with diverse educational and professional backgrounds from different parts of the World. We offer to our students the enabling environment for effective learning and continuous self-development where they master not only basic and clinical sciences, but acquire global vision for human development, respect for universal rights, and ability to successfully function in multicultural settings.

It is our strong belief that a true medical doctor can only be raised by combining clinical excellence and deep respect for human life through its biological, social and cultural dimensions. We build medical and healthcare competences of our students by applying diverse teaching and learning aids, such as modern labs, patient simulation devices, hands-on clinical exposures and contemporary public health intervention methodologies. It is our ambition that our graduates can fit the licensure requirements in different advanced healthcare systems. Therefore, we offer to USMLE (United State Medical Licensing Examination) preparation courses as an elective option.

And lastly, our students and faculty enjoy multiple options of social life and leisure opportunities in a beautiful city of Batumi at the Black Sea coast.

Demet Akın
Rector, Associate Professor
