Near East University is the first University in TRNC to give Medical Education. NEU Faculty of Medicine is home to the Medical Genetics and Medical Biology Departments. Our aim is to make our Medical Genetics Department, which became a very popular area to do research in, an attractive palce for doing Masters and PhD degrees. Due to increasing demand from national and international applicants the departments of Medical Biology and Medical genetics started offering Graduate degrees since February 2012.
