After graduating from Faculty of Medicine in 1996, I worked as a research assistant at Gaziantep University Faculty of Medicine Urology Clinic between 1998-2003. I worked as a specialist doctor between 2003-2006 and as an assistant professor between 2006-2008 in the same clinic. I got the title of associate professor in December 2008 and the title of professor in March 2014. I am still working in the same clinic.
