I believe that the pharmaceutical profession will be carried to even higher places with our valuable students who are raised by Bezmialem. Today, we continue our studies in order to graduate our students as well-equipped pharmacists by providing the opportunity to practice in our faculty and in our numerous clinics. You, our students, will grow up in Bezmialem as a Pharmacist with the undergraduate education you will receive and practice in our numerous clinics. More importantly, you will travel in the spiritual light of our founder, Bezmialem Valide Sultan."
