Turkey Chapter of ICOS Established
Under the leadership of Dr. Cafer Zorkun ICOS established a chapter in Turkey this October! Dr. Zorkun established a cardio-oncology Outpatient Clinic at Trakya University, School of Medicine in Edirne, in 2016. Since that time they hosted three cardio-oncology meetings in 2017 and seven in 2018 in Edirne. All of them were recognized by the Ministry of Health and qualified for continuing medical education. Since May 2019 almost every cardiology meeting included a cardio-oncology session.
In August of 2019 Dr. Zorkun was appointed to the Istanbul Faculty of Medicine and now the second cardio oncology clinic is being organized there. Meetings have also been organized for medical students and patients along with their families. There will be a National cardio-oncology Meeting (CardioOncology Istanbul) on November 23rd, 2019 in Istanbul where Dr. Zorkun will serve as the congress director.
